10 photos you must not forget to take on your wedding day

  • Years later, you’ll be thankful you did.
It’s a special day that should live forever in your heart … and photos

We know how busy it gets on the big day.

What with everybody running around, aunties screaming at the top of their voices, your mother wondering why it’s taking the caterer so long to deliver the bowl of salad and what not.

If all of that isn’t enough to throw you off and set your already rankling nerves in more turmoil, then I don’t know what will.

In the midst of all these however, you mustn’t forget to take some very important photos for your wedding album because in a few months or years, when you pick it up, you will regret not posing for those important shots.

 

The Dress

It’s important – extremely –  to capture the beauty that is your wedding dress, hanging or sitting in all its glory, before you put it on.

Years later, you’ll be thankful you did.

Other important details like shoes and the bouquet also make for a beautiful wedding album.

This is the calm before the storm and it’s also when your makeup is at it’s freshest.

Moments your exciting knows no bounds

Also be sure the best angles of your wedding dress are captured.

In all its glory for the rest of time

Mummy and me!

Because she’s going to be extremely busy on this day and because most photographers tend to focus only on that walk down the aisle with daddy, it’s important that you grab your mum for a quick and cute photo before you head out to church.

It’s likely the photographer won’t forget this but be sure to remind him at least two times.

You don’t want to take chances.

 

The first kiss

Because two’s now one

What are you doing if you don’t document your first (legal) kiss? You’re allowed to not complete the photographer’s payment if he misses this very special moment – serious.

You kid(s) will see you as ultimate couple goals with a shot like this

On the rainy days, this photo will remind you of how happy and in love you were when you chose each other as life partners.

The first dance

Whether it’s just you and hubby on the dance floor…

Or you had your crazy friends cheering you on…

…the first dance photo will always stir up good memories.

 

The bouquet toss

The bouquet throw is usually seen as pointing out who’s next

Good for aesthetics. Also good for when you want to take a playful jibe at your friends.

 

Signed, sealed and delivered!

Very important.

Making that love official

Now, go on and hand the photographer this list, tell him or her we said it must be followed to a T – along with the hundreds of other shots to be taken on the D-day.

You’re welcome.
