5 Types Of Photos To Capture At Your Wedding


Wedding photographers are an indispensable part of your wedding day. They capture each precious moment in beautiful detail, so you can look back at your wedding day in the years to come. Professional photographers can work without input from clients, but you should let your photographer know if there are any specific photos you desire. Here are five types of pictures you might want your wedding photographer to take on the big day.

1. Behind The Scenes Photos

Before the wedding begins, the bride and groom will get dressed privately. It's considered bad luck for the couple to see each other before the wedding, so there are lots of little moments you'll only get to see on film. A photographer can unobtrusively capture the process of getting ready. For example, they can photograph the bride putting on her makeup or the groom pinning on his boutonniere. 

2. Boudoir Photos

Some brides like to put together a boudoir photo album for their groom. Boudoir photographs are sensual yet tasteful portraits. Many women find that taking these photos helps them feel more confident and sexy. If you're interested in a boudoir photo shoot before your wedding, find a photographer who has experience with this type of photography.

3. Wedding Ring Photos

The wedding rings are the most important item of the day. They represent a sizable investment and also the couple's commitment to one another. Many couples choose to have their photographer commemorate their rings. If you want wedding ring photos, make sure you have ring boxes available for display purposes. Your photographer will do the rest, carefully staging the scene so they can photograph your wedding rings in their best light.

4. Candid Photos

Candid photos are an important way to capture the fun and energy of your wedding day. After the wedding ceremony is over, your photographer will mingle among the guests at your reception, looking for great moments to capture on film. Posed photographs have their place, but there's nothing like seeing true laughter and unadulterated joy on the faces of people at your wedding.

5. Family Photos

Weddings are a time when families gather to celebrate the union of two people. It's also an excellent time to take family photos. Directly after the ceremony, your wedding photographer can gather both families together for a series of family portraits. Everyone will be happy and dressed in beautiful clothes, so it's a great opportunity to capture people on film looking their best.

Good Photos Preserve Great Memories

When I was a child, it seemed like my parents never stopped taking photos of me and my brothers. I actually began to hide every time they got the camera out. When I moved out on my own, I vowed to never own a camera. I ended up purchasing a cell phone that had one, and after playing around with it a little, I learned how much fun it was to take photos! I loved it so much I went to school to learn how to be a professional photographer, and I enjoy every minute of my job. Just the other day, I took a look at all of my family's old photos and, I have to admit, I am so glad my parents took them! I have a little spare time to fill, so I decided to start a blog to share my photography tips! Come back often!
