Exchanging rings. The kiss. The best man’s toast. The cake table. The dog running into the cake table a la the Brady Bunch. Today’s wedding cakes are works of art, so definitely don’t forget the cake table. There are some things you don’t want to miss at any wedding. Although professional photographers know this, a good photo list guides you towards the shots that matter most.
To help DIY photographers, Brides magazine came up with the 50 must-take wedding photos. The list works whether the photos are photo-journalistic style or more structured. It’s an excellent starting point. It’s also a helpful list for deciding what to include in a wedding book.
Remember to also add images that show the personality of the wedding. A bride and groom’s artistic flourish appearing on their hands and feet. A flower girl’s somersaults in her formal dress. The way a couple’s initials are drawn in the sand at a lakeside wedding. Capturing this type of nuance can add depth and character to your wedding photographs.
