We all know how important it is to get all of those fun, memorable moments captured at your wedding! Whether it be group photos, bride and groom portraits, ceremony, or reception photos (the list goes on), it’s a must to have an idea of what you’re looking for! This way, your photographer can carry out your vision, and you can focus more on your special day! Here is a list of 10 ideas that are perfect to start your shot list and to help you brainstorm more ideas that you will want to be captured! Enjoy!
1. Floral Details
Up-close shots of your bouquet/floral details of ceremony and reception.
2. Venue Shots
Shots of the scenery of where you’re getting married for memories!
3. Bridal Moments
These could be photos while getting ready and when you’re all dolled up in your gorgeous dress!
4. Groom Moments
Portraits of the groom before the ceremony/when the bride is walking down the aisle!
5. Pet Love
Couples who are thinking of having their pets at their wedding, this one’s for you!
6. Champagne/Wine Toasts!
A fun idea for the bride & groom and a toast to being official! Cheers!
7. Ceremony & Reception Shots
This could be photos of the signage/seating/altar/aisle/table setting/dance floor/any details of your beautiful ceremony and reception!
8. Recessional out of the Ceremony
Make this moment yours!
9. Your Guests Laughing and Dancing
It’s always fun to send your loved ones photos of them having a great time at your wedding!
10. Couple Send-Off
If you have a send-off planned, make sure to get those moments captured too! You will be looking back years later thinking how special that moment was!
I hope this list sparked some ideas for your perfect wedding photos! Scroll through the styled wedding shoot gallery below to see these ideas in action! The shoot was at the Oak Mountain Winery wedding venue in Temecula Valley Wine Country, and, with the collaboration of so many amazing vendors, we were able to create such beautiful photos! We had such a wonderful time together, and I am seriously obsessed with how gorgeous the photos turned out!
