Make time for your photos

Your wedding is a very special day and you want to celebrate with family and friends. However, you have to make time for your photos. The couple, bridal party and parents of the couple will have to be available for pictures.


  • Scout the area ahead of time to see if you have a preference as to the backdrops for some of your photos.

  • Your photographer will do the same.

  • However, if there is an amazing spot on the property that sparks joy in your heart, have some photos taken there.

  • You can arrange to have photos taken away from the venue. If there is a beautiful park, beach or any other scenic location nearby, let the photographer know ahead of time.

Candid photos

Staged photos are beautiful and weddings generally have many of those types of pictures. However, candid photography is also an important component when it comes to your wedding pictures. You'll love the candid shots of your wedding. You'll catch people dancing, laughing and just being themselves. These may very well be some of your favorite pictures from the wedding.

They are something that you will love looking back on over the years. The above tips will help ensure that these photos continue to bring you joy each time you look at them. Work closely with your photographer, communicate clearly and relax. Your photos will be as amazing as you hope they will be.
