5 Photos You’ll Want in Your Wedding Album

5 Photos You’ll Want in Your Wedding Album

Weddings Eureka CA Every wedding is a little different, but nearly every wedding album will have many of the same types of photos. And that’s with good reason, as there are moments during the ceremony and reception that you will definitely want to look back on: the first dance, father giving away the bride, etc. All of these moments are crucial parts of the event that fill your wedding photo album. However, the wedding and reception aren’t the only parts worth photographing. There are a thousand moments on the day of the wedding that happen before guests even start arriving and after the main show is over. The anticipation is tangible, and a good wedding photographer will be able to capture these moments of excitement and nervousness. If you still need to hire a wedding photographer, we have information on many of the local photographers, caterers and vendors that your wedding might need. We provide this as a resource to our brides, because we know it’s difficult to hunt down all the info from scratch. You can look through what local photographers have provided our shop while trying on wedding dresses and testing out bridesmaid dresses. Whomever you hire as your wedding photographer, go over with her the kinds of shots that she plans to take and let her know what you would like to see end up in your wedding album. For those who have hired photographers already, see if these shots are on their list:
  1. The Bride’s Preparation: A lot of work often goes into preparing the bride for her big day, from putting up her hair, to slipping on her shoes or having her makeup done. All of these have the potential to create photos worth saving and that showcase the care that goes into preparing the bride.
  2. The Groom’s Preparation: Not many grooms just waltz into the chapel as-is. From putting on the jacket to tying the tie, the groom and his groomsmen are perfect candidates for a pre-wedding shoot.
  3. Reactions of the Parents: This shot is during the wedding ceremony, and may require your photographer to have an assistant. However, catching the expressions of the bride and groom’s parents or other key family members gives you a glimpse of what they were thinking at that moment. That is the kind of moment that the bride and groom may not have even seen otherwise.
  4. Casual moments with the wedding party: These ones are often the most fun to flip through or post online to share. When the bride and her bridesmaids are hanging out together or the groom and his groomsmen are, those moments are worth more than the dark camera phone photos you would have otherwise, especially if you are fully dressed up!
  5. Close-up of Your Favorite Part: Maybe its the shoes. Or the centerpieces. Or the veil. Or the intricate lace and beadwork on your wedding dress. Whatever your favorite part out of the entire wedding, tell your photographer to take a few extra shots up close. It’ll make a fun entry into your album.
