Your wedding photos and video are one of the most important elements from your big day that you will have as a reminder years from now. Because they’re such a major part of capturing the day for a lifetime, couples sometimes dedicate a large part of their budget to services from photographers and videographers. While it’s always important to meet with vendors and see samples of their work, you should also play a role in choosing some of the shots and styles you want to see captured for your wedding.
We’ve compiled a list of some of the most timeless, fun, and trending photo ops for weddings. Jot down notes and then share your vision with the vendor you choose to ensure you have the memories you want to be captured of your big day.
Think About Color, Vibrancy, and Tone
There are so many options today when it comes to photography style and editing. It’s not as simple as snapping photos in high definition. If you’ve ever browsed online through other’s wedding photos you’ll see they differ in tone, vibrancy (much like filters you use on your own phone), and colors. If you really love a certain style, like sepia-toned photos – then be sure to tell your photographer about it so they know what you desire in the final outcome. Many will have a signature style or two that they use – so it’s important to ask.
Make a List of Small Moments You Want to Capture
While it’s pretty easy to think of a list of the most important moments you want to be captured from your wedding day – sometimes we forget about the little moments too. While you’re in the planning phase, take some time to compile a list of those moments that aren’t typically seen in photo albums, but that is important to you. Things like the bride opening her wedding morning gift if you’ll both be surprising each other the morning of, or the hair and makeup process, and even a great flat lay photo of the bridesmaid bouquets may be something you want to be captured.
