A lot of planning and attention to detail has gone into organizing your wedding day. The wedding photographs will contain all your happy memories of the day so it is important to get a photographer who will know how to take beautiful pictures. Before you choose a wedding photographer do see samples of their work. Not all photographers offer the same package so ensure that the wedding photographic package will include all the photographs you want and not just the ones the photographer consider important. A skilled wedding photographer will be able to edit and do touch ups to get the best photographs. The wedding photography package is expensive so the photographs should be owned by you so do ensure you also receive a disk with them all on.
It is now becoming very popular is to put an inexpensive disposable camera on every table so the guests can also take informal photographs of the party. They will be able capture moments of the wedding party which you may not see, so these informal photographs will complement those taken by the professional photographer. Choose someone to collect all the cameras and arrange for them to be processed and put onto a CD then it will be easier for you to copy to your family and friends. It will be great to have these photographs of your family and friends which you may not have otherwise seen. With the excitement of the day, some important photographs are overlooked. Here are some suggestions of photographs you may like included in your album.
A photograph of your bridal bouquet when freshly delivered. Although not usually photographed, your wedding shoes before wear marks appear. Make it a special picture with the shoes laid out with your veil and accessories. Also, have a photograph of you the bride with your bridesmaids and do not forget close ups of the bridesmaids’ accessories and shoes. The bride’s father will be in many photographs because he will ‘give the bride away’, so remember to have a photograph with your mother who will be very proud of the beautiful bride who is her daughter. Before the ‘cutting of the cake’ ceremony takes place, do have a close up photograph taken of the cake topper and the cake. Arrange for your photographer to go into the wedding breakfast room before the bridal party arrives to take photographs of the table centers, favors, etc, all in pristine condition. A must is the classic posed photograph by your transport as you leave your wedding venue. It will be a perfect finish to your wedding album.
