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.

The Sweetest Sounds

"The sweetest sounds I'll ever hear are still inside my head
The kindest words I'll ever know are waiting to be said
The most entrancing sight of all is yet for me to see.
And the dearest love in all the world is waiting somewhere for me..."- Cinderella
