Your wedding photographs are one of the most timeless reminders of the big day. They capture all of the beautiful moments throughout your wedding, from getting ready with your bridesmaids until the final exit as you make your way off to the honeymoon – moments that you might be too busy to appreciate as they’re happening because you’re feeling excited, nervous and blissfully happy!
To ensure that all of your precious moments are captured so you can reminisce on them for years to come, it’s a good idea to talk with your Pittsburgh wedding photographer about all of the aspects you want to photograph throughout the day. The first step to making sure you have amazing wedding photographs is to hire a quality, professional photographer whom you trust and feel extremely comfortable to have around during the many special moments of your wedding day. Once you talk with your photographer about the types of photos you would like to include in your album, it’s then time for you to trust in them as professionals and spend your time soaking in all of the magic that comes along with preparing for a wedding!
While you can easily include or not include any images that you want in your wedding album, here are some of the must-have wedding pictures to consider capturing during your wedding day:
- Invitations – Your wedding stationery is something beautiful to capture – you took time to create personal style and details that encompass your wedding – but it’s often forgotten once it’s sent out. Another reason to photograph the wedding invitation suite? It has all of the details about your wedding day – which is something you’ll definitely want to remember! If you prefer a more detailed shoot with your invitation suite, such as including décor or other extra elements, you might want to consider taking them at a later time in a studio or other setting (be sure to ask your wedding photographer about possibilities, first).
- Accessories + Beauty – One of the most beautiful shots to get is a bride preparing for her wedding day. While it’s always ideal to be photographed getting ready, consider taking a photo of the accessories by themselves – these breathtaking details often get lost in traditional wedding photographs and, when they’re placed together, create such a lovely image to cherish.
- Bride and Groom Portraits – Before the two of you meet, whether it’s for first-looks or during the ceremony, portraits are perfect options to show off detailed wedding looks and capture that final image before you exchange vows!
