Your wedding photos may become some of your most treasured possessions. Capturing images created on one of the most special days of your life, to treasure forever – immortalised to show generations to come.

With this being the case, it’s only natural that you will want to spend some time thinking about how best to capture these memories that will last a lifetime. We’ve gathered up a few tips you might want to consider.

Black & White

Always a good choice – ask your photographer to intersperse your images with some atmospheric black and white shots. Beautiful shots can be created by playing with the light, making your images really beautiful. And it’s an excellent option if it’s raining! If it is… make the most of it! Grab an umbrella and make it a feature!

Location

Find a beach! Or a field… or a boat… or an iconic landmark…  Travelling to a gorgeous location close to your wedding is an ideal place to catch your breath and spend a few moments together before returning to your celebration. And it makes a stunning backdrop for your pictures!

Catch some comedy

There’s bound to be plenty of laughter on your wedding day, so make sure some of those moments are caught. Seeing a little moment of fun will bring those funny memories flooding back! Lots of photographers specialise in catching these natural moments, so make sure you choose one who can just blend into the crowd and get some good shots.

Memory Lane

If you can steal a moment to have some photos taken somewhere that means a lot to you as a couple. A place that has significant meaning to you is a wonderful feature for your photos – maybe the site of the proposal? Or where a parent or grandparent got married…

Friends and Family

A little tip here – make sure you think carefully about who you want in your photos. It may sound harsh, but you may have a huge number of guests, and there is a limit to how many lineups you want – if any. If you’re not a fan of the traditional ‘friends and family’ shots, make sure your photographer gets plenty of natural guest shots to remind you of the loved ones who were there with you. Or create a photo booth and get them to take their own photos!

Savour a Stunner

Or in other words, make the most of the place you choose to get married! If you’re going for a destination wedding, you’ll want to savour every single moment of that blissful paradise bubble. So make sure you’ve got some epic shots.

Make Memories

Above all, just make sure you’re clear about what’s important to you – capturing the first kiss, the first sight of the bride, the ‘I do’ moment… the seconds that you’ll want to be reminded of again and again.
