Bride Guide #40 is all about the Wedding Day photography by Weber County Utah Wedding Photographer Lauren Kay Photography.
1. Do a first look and bride and groom photos.
Before you go to the temple or before your ceremony, do a first look with a few bride and groom photos following. First looks are such an intimate time between the two of you. Your groom can enjoy you without feeling the pressure to react for a crowd.
2. Make pictures a priority.
You will still want to have a formal session of sorts. If you choose not to do formal pictures beforehand, carving out an hour or two on your timeline during sunset for husband and wife photos is a must.
Get all the details you want photographed out beforehand. Ask to see the shot list and tweak it to be exactly what you want, then let your photographer know. Let your photographer know all of the moments you definitely want captured. And any that you don’t. And print your pictures! If your pictures are only left online, you’ll never look at them.
Invest in an album.
I was certain I would make my own wedding album and never did. It usually is more expensive and time consuming to make your own album than it is worth. If you cannot afford a professional album, use a simple program like https://chatbooks.com/ or https://www.shutterfly.com/ to create an album.
It doesn’t cost very much to go get prints and put them in your frames. Let all of the money you invested in good photography go to good use.
