Photographing a wedding is so much fun – from first looks to exchanging vows and cutting the cake, capturing the entire wedding process throughout one of the happiest days of your life is one of the most rewarding aspects as a Pittsburgh wedding photographer!
You know what else is fun to shoot? All the details.
From the wedding invitations to the beautiful jewels you’ll pair with your dress, or the expression on the groom’s face when he sees you for the first time…these are the things that truly create wonderful memories as you look at your wedding album in the years to come. You spent so much time and care picking out the details – but they’re one of the most forgotten after the blur of the day goes by! As a Pittsburgh wedding photographer, I love the opportunity to capture all of those little moments and details as the ambiance around you is emotional and romantic!
Wondering how you can add or incorporate details into your wedding photography? Here are some of the most popular things to do, which you can implement as you prepare for your big day:
This is one of the most romantic ideas and it’s been around for a few years – personalized hangers! Taking a picture of the wedding gown before you put it on is one of the most amazing images, and it’s even better when you hang it on a customized hanger. Don’t have one of those? No worries – even a simple wooden hanger adds so much detail and simplicity to a shot. Keep in mind that most hotels and wedding venues have them, in case you forget it during the bustle of the day. Just make sure you don’t showcase your gorgeous gown on a plastic or metal hanger – there’s way less impact.
Before the best man takes the rings, allow your Pittsburgh wedding photographer to capture a few spectacular images. Shooting the rings with some of the other bridal jewelry and gown adds such a special touch! For the easiest option, consider keeping the rings together until the first look and then hand them over to the best man.
With long wedding gowns, bridal shoes don’t often get the love they deserve! As part of the wedding album, include a special shot of your heels along with some other special touches, like the wedding invitations.
