Must Have Wedding Photos

While we are working closely with our brides, it is essential to learn about your wedding day. We love to learn about the wedding vibe, and all that you have planned thus far. As your Wedding Photographers it is essential for us to capture these must have Wedding Photos for our clients on the day. We work beside site coordinators and wedding planners seamlessly in the process of creating ensuring the day flows perfectly. Additionally, we infuse our Wedding Photos with additional Wedding Photography Styles for our brides to receive a true curated Fine Art collection and experience. As creatives, we essentially are not working from a Wedding Photo Shot List, however, I like to mention it is a creative recipe I have built over ten years of experience working in the wedding, fashion, and beauty industry and culmination of my time to curate your day to perfection.

While in the process of curating your dream wedding photos, we will review details such as your beautiful wedding dresses, wedding day details, bridal glam, your wedding venue, and so much more together.

With a documentary photography and photojournalistic approach to the day, we find these moments will naturally unfold in front of our lens throughout the day. Throughout my ten years of experience in the industry, I have found a few Must Have Wedding Photos that my clients absolutely treasure and below we’ll take a moment to review those details below and my approach.

Bridal Details

Your day is officially here and you have so many beautiful things to celebrate. The love of your life, your families union, best friends joining from afar, and wow, you have spent hours culminating all of these incredible details. From the Pinterest boards, to conversations with family, visions with vendors. And your day is OFFICIALLY HERE. You look around the room and the moment is perfect. All of the details came together so beautifully…. Now let’s chat a bit ABOUT the details!

These are the items you curated so beautifully. Now, with that being said, they deserve JUST AS much attention. On the wedding day, I will photograph a culmination of beautiful flat lay details to capture those to utter perfect. I cannot wait to see EVERYTHING!

Pre-Ceremony Anticipation

In the morning of a wedding nerves may be running a bit high. I absolutely love capturing that pre-ceremony anticipation. A few moments as the groom prepares to read his vows. The bride steps into her gown. The moment she sees herself in the mirror. So special. The bridal reveal. Even more exciting! Moments I treasure capturing as a Wedding Photographer.

Example: Engagement, Wedding Bands, Wedding Invitation Suite from a Fall Crossed Keys Estate Wedding.

The Reveal

During the ceremony or first look you will share a few emotive reveal moments. Here is another one of our favorite and must have photos for the day. It is a time for you to just take it all in and enjoy this very special moment the day as you become husband and wife.

On our wedding day, I remember, the moment of our first look, when my father walked me down the aisle, and when I was at the altar… These moments I treasure to this day. The moment at the aisle. We held on so tightly as if nothing in the world mattered… It felt as through we were the only people in the garden. We were so present in each and every single moment on our day and it was incredibly special.

Example: The emotive reveal at the altar at this Summer Congress Hall Cape May Wedding.

Flower Girl(s) & Ring-Bearer(s)

Were you ever in a wedding as a kiddo? Remember that special time of looking up at the beautiful bride? I can sure remember when I was a flower girl and remember that special moment. It is so special to capture the little kids as they are all dressed up beside the bride and groom and their parents.

Example: An intimate moment with the Bride and Flower Girl at this Summer Cape May Wedding moments prior to her departure to Ceremony.

Romantic Bridal and Groom Portraits

As we capture your portraits on the wedding day, we love the romantic embraces. We love as couples soak in the moment. During your portraits, take this time. Soak in all of these moments as they go by ever so quickly. During your formal portraits, we will provide direction to walk you through the process for romantic, editorial portraits whilst also capturing the organic, unrehearsed documentary moments as they unfold naturally in front of my lens.

Example: A few intimate bride and groom portraits at golden hour during this beautiful Spring wedding at the Coach House at the Ryland Inn.

Family and Wedding Party Portraits

Your favorite people are here celebrating the most treasured days of life with you. We are so thrilled to capture such special moments and memories with your Wedding Party and Family on your wedding day. From Family Formals to the candid moments as they naturally unfold, all of these moments are so special!

Example: Picture-perfect moments during family formals at this fall Crossed Keys Estate Wedding | Joyful moments during Wedding Party formals at this Ryland Inn spring wedding.

Choreographed Dance Sets

Sharing your first dance together as husband and wife is one of our favorites to capture. We love the energy, excitement, and emotion. We love to see our couple’s epic choreography skills perfected with lifts and romantic dips!

Example: What a romantic first dance ‘on the clouds’ at the Park Chateau Estate & Gardens!
