Deciding on what pictures you want for your wedding can be very stressful.
A wedding is a very busy affair with a lot of things going on at the same time. Heart-warming moments can happened left and right and a wedding photographer may find himself dizzy with the amount of people saying “take my picture”. The question of to shoot or not to shoot is the proverbial question wedding photographers are always asking themselves when they are covering a wedding. The worst case that can happen is that a wedding photographer actually misses an important moment during the wedding like the bride stepping out from the car. Or the wedding photographer snaps a picture of a moment best forgotten during a wedding. Here are some instances you want caught on camera at your wedding.
The first shot you probably one to take is the solo shot of the bride.
This should happen before she is carted off away in the expensive car waiting outside. This shot is one of the basic shots that should be included in your wedding photography. Catch the bride with the veil covering her face or her posing dramatically by the door. In fact, catch as many solo pictures of the bride during the wedding day. She’ll really appreciate it. Another essential shot you would want to take is the grand entrances. Be it a flower girl or a bridesmaid walking down the aisle, snap a picture. Wedding photography doesn’t only include the bride and groom who are well on their way to being married. It includes all the guests present during the event. Their grand entrances are very things they want captured on film. Why? It is sort of proof that they actually attended the event.
Every heard of the phrase “Pictures, or it didn’t happen.” The next shot should be that of the bride and the groom getting off the car. Everyone wants to see how the couple of the hour arrived at the venue. The next vital shot you should take is of the bride walking down the aisle. If you miss this shot, consider changing careers. It wouldn’t be wedding photography without a shot of the bride walking down the red carpet in her lovely wedding dress. Make sure to get front and back shots. And while the bride is doing her slow walk to the altar, sneak a shot of the groom. He’s probably having an emotional breakdown on seeing his future wife looking so stunning. Maybe he’s wiping away a tear. Taking a shot of this is a great plus to the wedding photography.
Another essential shot you should be prepared to take it the kiss.
When the officiating minister finally says the words “You may kiss the bride.” prepare the camera and flash. This is the most memorable wedding photo you will take. The kiss celebrates the love and dedication both the bride and groom promise to each other. The last essential wedding photo is the picture of the bride and groom walking away from the altar. This is a very symbolic shot as it alludes to the start of their brand new life as husband and wife. Keep these instances in mind and your wedding photography will be perfect.
