Wedding Details You Must Photograph

You’ve already thought about what getting the best photographer for your wedding day and taking all the classic photos. But what are some of the important details you want to capture? Your photographer will already know to shoot the classic wedding items on your big day, but if you have something extra special that he or she may not know the history or importance of then you’d better be sure to share that information with your photographer. For example, I once had a bride that had photographs of her grandparents attached to her bouquet. I did not know the photos were there until I happened to stumble upon it sitting on a table at the reception. What if I’d missed something of such sentimental value to my client?!

Wedding favors are also small detailed goods you will want photographed. Favors are special items you give your guests for them to take home to remember your wedding day. If you have something special like these adorable honey jars as favors make sure you let your photographer knows these are important to you.

One of the often overlooked detail items to photograph include the invitation suite and save the date cards so give these to your photographer if you want him or her to help you document these pretty items. A lot of thought goes into picking out the perfect invitation and the details such as the colors, envelope liner, special embossing or engraving, motif, font, or even the stamps used can all have sentimental value for the couples.

Often times couples work with event planners or rental companies to pick out the perfect style of decor for their wedding. The couple may have a theme to their wedding such as a chic rustic theme and rental companies can help to incorporate items that help to tie the theme together by including special cake stands such as this rustic wood cake stand. Reception table settings may include centerpieces, glassware or table numbers. Other items that help to tie your wedding together are reception decor such as lanterns, chalkboard signs or dance floor monograms. Make sure your photographer helps to document these special items so you will always have photos to help you remember the vibe you were aiming to encompass on your wedding day!
