Planning your wedding photos

You spend months and months planning the most important day of your life and the day will come and go in the blink of an eye. Once the wedding day is over, all you really have left (besides a husband) are the photos from your big day.

It is really important to have a connection with your photographer and I would definitely recommend an engagement shoot. The engagement shoot will give you a practice run with your photographer so that you can ensure the spark is there.

If you photographer does not have a template of which photographs you would like on the day, it is a good idea to make your own list. This can be anything from a picture of you and your great granny to a photograph of you and your husband with each table of guests.

Some photographers are brilliant at making sure all the standard wedding poses are covered. Unfortunately, our photographer slipped up and forgot to take a number of really important pictures. The most important being a photograph of the two families that are joining: my mom and dad with my new in-laws and my husband and I and we only remembered the next day when it was too late.

So save yourself the heartache. Make a list. If you need any help, Pinterest is a great place to start for some unconventional wedding photography ideas.
