What to Do with Your Wedding Photographers

Having great photos of one of the most
important days of your life is a necessity! You want quality pictures that
capture the moments you may never have even considered. Continue reading for
some picture ideas you can ask your St. Louis wedding photographers to do on
your big day.

Brides and Bridesmaids
When people think of wedding photos, they
think of the bride and groom, the whole family, and the reception. However,
there is an entire process beforehand to capture as well. Make sure the
photographer is around to capture the bride having her makeup and hair done.
Having photos of the gown is important too, before it is being worn. The bride
will also probably want pictures of her shoes, jewelry, and other unique
objects. You will also want pictures of the bridesmaids getting ready. These
are things the bride herself (and of course the groom) will have missed in the
process and may want to see later.

Family Shots
Your family is a big part of the event,
and their involvement should be captured. Make sure you will have photos of the
bride’s mother helping her with finishing touches, like adjusting the veil or
zipping up the bride’s dress. Request photos of the father seeing the bride in
her gown as well. The groom will want pictures of his family and photos with
his best man and his groomsmen. You should have pictures of the bride with her
whole family, the groom with his family, and the two families combined.

Other Pictures
There are so many photos you will want of
the ceremony itself and at the reception. Make sure your St. Louis wedding photographers capture the kiss. Pictures of both
parties walking down the aisle will be fun to look at later, since the bride
and groom are separated for those moments. The audience reactions and any
close-up photos of faces are exciting as well, since they freeze moments the
couple will likely miss. You may also like more creative, unique shots. Ask the
professionals if you can see their portfolio, and look online for other ideas
you may want to use.
