Plan Ahead & Communicate With Your Photographer
Planning and communication with your photographer are key to successful wedding day photos! Your photographer is with you all day and the more they know about your wedding day and what you want, the better they will be able to photograph it. They can give you realistic expectations on how long things take and how to navigate them. This will greatly help in planning a timeline as well. Did you know those gorgeous flat-lay photos you see on Pinterest can sometimes take over an hour? Did you know cocktail hour for photos flies by? So make sure to ask your photographer how to best maximize this time!
Communicate How You Want to Spend Your Wedding Day!
Talk about how you would like to spend your wedding day! Some couples want direction, poses, and tons of planned photo ops! Other couples want minimal posed photos and just want to celebrate and document the day just as it was. There isn’t a choice that’s better than the other, it just truly depends on what YOU want. So, it’s important to think about the direction you want to take with your wedding photos, and that you communicate that clearly with your photographer!
Book Your Engagement Photos With Your Chosen Wedding Photographer!
Yes, you might have already done one, or maybe a friend photographed you. But it makes the world of difference, I promise you! It’s so valuable to get comfortable with your photographer and with how they pose and direct. You may already be nervous on your wedding day. The last thing you want is to also be nervous about getting in front of the camera too! Plus, you get to snuggle up with your honey even more. What’s so wrong with that?! 😉
Just Roll With It & Enjoy Your Wedding Day!
Nerves set in but this is the best advice my introverted husband can give you is to just roll with it and have fun! The best photos are filled with emotion, laughter, and love. Be silly, be romantic. It’s your day! Don’t worry about how you look, what’s going on in the day, whether the flowers aren’t right, or if your timeline is running behind. That’s for your vendors to worry about. Party, kiss, and dance the night away because this is your day, and your time to celebrate!
