8 Must-Have Wedding Detail Photos

Your wedding day is a day you want to remember forever. You want every last detail like the food, the fun and the flowers to be captured on film. Typically the photographer focuses on the couple portraits and all the big moments like the I do’s, the first dance and cake cutting. Often times all those tiny details that you put so much thought into are forgotten with the hectic wedding day schedule. A few ways to ensure that you’re not missing any of your must-have shots is to hire a second shooter and also opt to have your bridal prep covered. Bridal prep is the perfect time for the photographer to get creative and set up some unique shots. Ask your florist for a few extra blooms and ribbon that the photographer can use to style your shots with. While one photographer is focused on this, the second shooter can focus on the behind the scenes and getting ready shots. Check out our list of top detail pictures and be sure to add these to the shot list for your photographer.

  

1. Gown – There is something so ethereal about a gorgeous wedding gown hanging up waiting to be put on. A must have bridal photo.

2. Shoes - Girls love their shoes and every bride puts a lot of time and energy into searching for the perfect pair, so be sure to include this pic on your shot list.

3. Invitations - Have your wedding invitation and any other printed wedding day stationery like the ceremony program, place cards and menu readily available so the photographer can set up some creative shots.

4. Jewelry – Have your wedding day jewelry easily accessible so your photographer can stage some dreamy shots.

5. Wedding Rings – There are so many creative ways to capture the wedding rings. We love them on shoes, with the invitation and tucked into your bouquet blooms!

6. Bouquet – Make sure your photog gets up close and personal with your bridal bouquet. This is one of the most important ingredients of the wedding and it should be captured from every angle.

7. Centerpieces – This is where a second shooter comes in handy! They can head into the reception and snag photos of the table-scapes, centerpieces and flowers before the room gets overrun with guests.

8. Cake – Modern Brides & Grooms take great care in choosing the design for their wedding cake. It usually incorporates personal details and is a true reflection of the couple.

All-In-One Venues

Choosing the perfect venue for your wedding is the biggest decision you will have to make when planning your big day. There are so many factors to consider, it can be overwhelming. If you are looking for a stress free day and want to save some money, choosing an all in one venue that can offer you lodging, a bridal prep suite, picturesque grounds and a ceremony and reception space is always a good idea. Here’s why.



1. Having your ceremony and reception at the same venue is often less expensive then paying for a separate ceremony location.

2. You can get ready at the same place you will be walking down the aisle without the hassle of hauling all your stuff in and out of vehicles and wrinkling your gown.

3. Eliminate the need for limos and guest transportation. By choosing a venue that has lodging, you wont need to shuttle your bridal party and guests to and from the reception.

4. You can save time and money by staying at one place for your prep, pictures, ceremony and reception. Traveling to multiple locations often means extended hours for your vendors.

5. Enjoy a stress free day knowing you can relax and don’t have to rush around, jump in and out of limos and worry about weather.
