Your wedding day is a day that is fully thought through and planned from your dress to the smallest details of the reception. All of that work shouldn't go unnoticed or forgotten that is why the details are one of my favorite things to capture. On a wedding day, I love to capture every single beautiful detail! This includes the dress, shoes, rings, jewelry, cufflinks, tie, and flowers. In today's post, I am going to show you all of the detail shots that I have captured from all of my past weddings to give you an idea of what you need to make sure that your photographer captures on your wedding day.
First I am going to talk about the rings. You always want to make sure your photographer gets a shot of you and your groom's rings because not only are they beautiful photos that will go in your wedding album and make a beautiful Facebook cover photo or Instagram post but it's a way to show them off to friends and family and pass them down to future generations.
Along with your rings, you want to make sure your photographer captures photos of your other jewelry. Sometimes my brides buy special jewelry for their big day or their mother bought it for them or even their jewelry is a family heirloom. No matter where you got your jewelry it is still special to you so you want to get a beautiful photo of it to remember for the rest of your life.
Now the groom doesn't have special jewelry usually for the photographer to capture but they do have cufflinks, shoes, and ties. Since the groom doesn't have much I always make sure to capture everything he has so you and him have the photos to look back and remember all of the special things he had.
Now it is a stereotype that girls love shoes right? Well most of us do and we spend a lot of money finding the perfect pair of shoes for our special day. I wore cowboy boots at my wedding and I loved them so much! They were so fun and different and comfortable as well! The shoes that my brides have chosen are some of the most beautiful shoes I have ever seen! I love showing off my photos that I get of their shoes because they are stunning and what girl doesn't want a beautiful photo of her beautiful shoes?
Next is your invitations! You may think that this isn't an important detail and isn't worth capturing but believe me, if you spent as much time as I did when I designed my invitations you will want to remember them! Your invitations are a beautiful part of your day because they share information about you and your groom and what the theme of your day is going to be.
The DRESS is my absolute favorite thing to photograph when it comes to details! Hanging the dresses on the beautifully detailed wall, or a colored wall just makes it pop so beautifully! You spent so much money on that dress so you need to gett as many pictures of it as you can!
Lastly your bouquet! Your bouquet is one of the most detailed pieces of your day second to your dress. Your flowers radiate who you are and show what you love! They wont last forever so you want to make sure you get a photo of them so you can remember how beautiful they looked!
Thank you for making it all the way through this post and I hope this shows you the importance of the little details of your wedding day! I also hope this helps you as you are creating your shot list and figuring out what you want to be captured on your big day! Thank you for reading another Wedding Wednesday post and happy wedding planning!
