With so much time and effort thrown into organising your wedding day, it’s every couples’ dream to get the perfectly planned day nailed on camera. Documentary-style photography and candid photos are a popular way of capturing the most natural wedding-day moments. It’s how we love to work at Bridal Light – we see ourselves as storytellers, getting all of the important and less obvious special moments on camera in a totally unobtrusive way.
Nevertheless, we are sure you have some of the classic must-have wedding photos in mind, and we’ll always work with you to make sure everything you want captured on camera and more is covered to give you a wedding album that will fill your heart with joy every time you take a peek at it.
Here are the top 20 must-have wedding photos we often get asked for:
1 – Details.
The devil is in the detail when it comes to weddings. That’s why we’ll get everything on camera from invitations, to favours, escort cards and the seating plan, decorations, table centrepieces, the tables, the food, the venue, ceremony settings and more. Just ask, and we’ll make sure all of your hard work is beautifully recorded in pictures.
2 – Flowers.
The bridal bouquet, bridesmaids’ flowers, button holes and table flowers (and any other flowers you want photographed).
3 – Getting glammed up.
Pictures of the bride getting ready are an important part of the big day, and will evoke feelings of that pre-wedding excitement every time you look at your wedding album.
4 – The dress.
Erm, of course! With lots of close-ups to get every gorgeous detail in the frame.
5 – The hair.
Well, it goes without saying that the bridal hair-do is a must-have shot.
6 – The shoes.
Especially if they are Jimmy Choo shoes!
7 – Bride and bridesmaids.
There simply has to be one of the bride with her besties. Don’t worry we’ll get it.
8 – Groom and groom-men!
9 – The first look.
One of the most romantic pics of the day is when the happy couple lock eyes on each other for the first time. It’s a beautiful moment. There are often tears!
10 – Secluded natural moments.
It’s good to get away from the crowd for a bit of breathing space. We’ll be quietly hot on your tail.
11 – The rings.
12 – The ceremony.
It’s a done deal.
13 – The vows
The looks, the written speeches, the romance.
14 – The kiss
It’s the photograph that says it all.
15 – We did it.
You did it, you’re married. We’ll get the joy wrapped up in a photograph that will invoke a warm fuzzy feeling every time you look at it.
16 – First dance.
It’s another must-have. We’ll be hiding in the wings waiting for this special moment.
17 – The cake.
Duh. If there’s a slice going spare …
18 – Dancing queen.
If you can wrap joy up in one bundle, this is it.
19 – Family moments.
All of your nearest and dearest will want to congratulate you on your special day. We’ll be on hand to quietly capture all of the hugs, laughter and lots of natural connections.
20 – The kids.
We’re great at photographing the kids (without them even knowing it!).
