Do you want your photos to be more light and airy? Dramatic and moody? Fun and whimsical? Whatever overall feeling you want your wedding photos to have, be sure to communicate that to your photographer. This will help them know what kinds of shots to take and how to edit them later on. 

The more they know the better they can capture the wedding pictures that you want!

2. Your Must-Have Shots

Having memories to look back on is the reason we photograph our weddings, right? And whilst the big is mostly about the happy couple you will also capture all the love of the people around you.

Certain photos are just a must on every wedding day. Make a list of the must-have shots you want like; family shots or even guests enjoying wedding cake!

Share this list with your photographer beforehand so they know exactly what you’re looking for. Of course, you’ll also want to leave some room for them to be creative and capture candid moments as well! 

3. How You Met & What Makes Your Relationship Special

Your wedding photographer will likely want to hear a little bit about how you two met and fell in love. It’s always nice for them to get to know their couples a little better before the big day! Plus, this will help them capture photos that are uniquely YOU and perfectly represent your relationship.  

4. The order of the day

Wedding days can be a little chaotic and with so much going on it’s easy to forget things. Be sure to give your photographer a detailed schedule of the day’s events so they know when they need to be where. This way, they can plan ahead and be prepared for whatever comes their way! 

5. Any Concerns You Might Have 

Do you have any ideas or poses that you’re really not comfortable with? Or maybe there’s a family member who tends to be a little camera-shy? Whatever it is, don’t hesitate to let your photographer know so they can adjust accordingly. The last thing you want is to feel uncomfortable or awkward in your own wedding photos!  

6. A Few Personal Touches
