A wedding is a very special day and for the Bride and Groom it is important to keep those memories forever if possible. The best way to do this is with photos. Collaborating with the photographer to come up with a wedding shot list that covers everything. Talking with the photographer to figure out the perfect shots leaves the bride and groom happy with the photos that they receive after the wedding.
There are so many opportunities on the wedding day to get photos to make lasting memories. There are a lot of creative options for wedding photos to cherish forever.
While getting ready for the big day, there are plenty of options for photographs that the bride and groom would love to see after. A few good sets of photos would be the wedding dress and suit hanging up, along with a photo of the wedding invitation. Other great getting ready photo options would be:
The engagement rings and wedding bands
Zipping up the bride’s dress

First look photos are becoming increasingly popular to show how parents and the wedding party react to seeing the bride and groom in their wedding clothing, as well as the bride and groom seeing each other for the first time on the wedding day. Having a first look for the bride and groom can help to get rid of some jitters during the ceremony.
The ceremony is where the guests will finally get to see the wedding party. Good shots of the room and the crowd as the ceremony begins are shots that a bride and groom may want to have. Other good shots to consider would be:
