50+ Wedding Day Shots You'll Want to Capture

On your wedding day, there's a lot going on! The more preparation you do before the wedding, the smoother your big day will go. One thing you will want to do is create a list of the photos that you want to capture. In the whirlwind of the day, you're likely to forget that awesome photo you saw that you wanted to re-create on your wedding day. Here are some photo ideas from your favorite bridal salon in South Florida to get your list started!

Getting Ready 

While the main focus is on the ceremony and the reception, don't forget to take photos of getting ready. Have your photographer take pictures of you and your girls getting ready, as well as the groom and his boys. Have your photographer capture these shots:
  • The Wedding Dress on a Hanger 
  • The Bride's Jewelry, Shoes & Other Accessories 
  • The Bride & Bridesmaids Putting Their Makeup On 
  • The Bride Being Helped Into Her Dress
  • Wedding Party's First Look of the Bride 
  • Mother & Father's First Look of the Bride 
  • Putting the Veil On 
  • Putting on the Garter 
  • Putting on the Shoes 
  • The Groom Tying His Tie
  • Pinning of the Boutonnieres
  • The Engagement Bands and Wedding Rings Together 

The Ceremony 

A professional wedding photographer is going to know how to get the best shots of a ceremony, but it's still not a bad idea to prepare a list of shots you don't want them to miss. Here are some ideas to include:
  • Room Shots of the Guests 
  • Parents & Grandparents Walking Down the Aisle 
  • Wedding Party Walking Down the Aisle 
  • Bride Walking Down the Aisle 
  • Everyone Watching the Bride Come Down the Aisle 
  • Groom's Face As He Sees Bride Coming Down the Aisle 
  • Father Giving Bride Away 
  • The Bride & Groom's Faces During the Vows 
  • Close-Up of the Exchange of the Rings 
  • The First Kiss as Husband and Wife 
  • The Look on Family Members' Faces During the Kiss 
  • The Recessional

Group Photos 

After the ceremony, the bride and groom will get some of the group pictures out of the way. You'll want to make sure to include all the important family members. Here are some photos not to forget:
  • Bride & Groom
  • Bride & Groom with Bride's Immediate Family 
  • Bride & Groom with Bride's Parents 
  • Bride & Groom with Groom's Immediate Family 
  • Bride & Groom with Groom's Parents

The Reception 

Likely the most fun pictures of the day will be taken at the reception. You've gotten most of the sentimental stuff out of the way, aside from the special dances, and now it's time to get a little goofy.
Here are some fun reception photo ideas to include on your list:
