Top Tips for Achieving Wedding Photos you Will Love


Your wedding photographs will be the key thing which you go to when reminiscing about your happy day in years to come, so it’s important that you love them! We have rounded up some top tips that will help ensure your photographic memories are captured in the best way possible.


  1. Get To Know Your Photographer

Firstly, building a relationship with your photographer is key to ensuring you capture all the moments that are most important to you during your big day. It can also be beneficial to book in for an engagement or pre-wedding shoot with your photographer as you will get to fully understand their style and likewise, they will get to know the things you like best. These steps will allow you to have trust in your photographer on the day and your photos are more likely to be exactly as you imagined.


  1. Create a Mood Board

 Browse Instagram and Pinterest to gather inspiration for the type of images you would love to capture during your wedding. You may find ideas and styles that you would never have thought of on your own and your photographer will love the opportunity to try and capture some unique shots for you to cherish forever.


  1. Consider an Unplugged Ceremony

 We’ve all heard the stories of iPhone photobombers ruining the photographers important ceremony shots. While it is hoped that your guests will be aware of this, it could be worthwhile reminding your guests to keep their phones away during the ceremony. Although they are simply excited and want to capture the moment, a friendly sign requesting that they refrain from taking their own snaps during the ceremony will avoid any unfortunate obstructions for your main photographer.


  1. Capture the Candid Moments

 While it is key to think of some ‘staged’ photo ideas it is also important to capture some beautiful candid moments throughout the day. If you discuss this with your photographer, they will be sure to focus on the intimate candid moments of you and your guests & these photos are often the ones you love the most!
