"10 Must-Have Shots for Your Wedding Photography List"

Congratulations on your engagement! As you begin planning your big day, one important aspect to consider is your wedding photography. Your wedding photographs will serve as a treasured reminder of your special day for years to come, so it's important to make sure you get the shots you want.

To help you get started, we've compiled a list of 10 must-have shots for your wedding photography list:

  1. Getting ready shots - Document the excitement and anticipation of getting ready for your big day.

  2. First look - Capturing the moment you see each other for the first time on your wedding day is a must-have.

  3. Ceremony shots - From the vows to the ring exchange, your ceremony shots will be some of the most meaningful and emotional of your day.

  4. Formal portraits - Traditional posed shots with your wedding party and family are always a nice addition to your album.

  5. Reception highlights - Don't forget to capture the special moments from your reception, such as your first dance and the cutting of the cake.

  6. Details - Your wedding day is filled with beautiful details, from your bouquet to your dress, so be sure to have these photographed.

  7. Candid shots - In addition to formal posed shots, it's important to have candid shots that capture the emotion and joy of your day.

  8. Sunset shots - The golden hour is the perfect time for romantic and dreamy shots, so make sure to schedule some time for these.

  9. Sparkler send-off - A sparkler send-off is a fun and unique way to end your wedding day, and it makes for some beautiful photographs.

  10. Trash the dress - If you're feeling adventurous, consider a "trash the dress" session where you can let loose and have some fun with your wedding attire.

Of course, this is just a starting point and you may have your own specific shots in mind. Be sure to discuss your vision with your photographer to ensure you get the shots that are most important to you.
