Here’s a round-up our the 6 most powerful wedding photos you need to have! All moments on your wedding day are sweet, but these wedding photography captures will always steal the show!
We are so passionate about wedding photography because we know we’re documenting one of the most powerful legacy you’ll ever live out. There are few things that are more incredible! There are also a few moments that *really* make wedding day incredibly special and are the sweetest photos to own.
Here’s a list of the photos you need to have. Of course, the small seeminly insignificant moments can be really powerful too. The key is that you focus on just being present to all the joys on your wedding day so you can take it all in. A candid wedding photography approach (and gentle posing when needed!) really helps with this!
Because let’s be honest, there are some moments that are guaranteed to “take-your-breath-away”. And here’s they are!
The first look will give you the rawest and most powerful wedding photos. There’s something about just having the two of you in a moment, prepared to dedicate the rest of your lives to each other.
You don’t want to miss this one! Exiting from your ceremony as husband and wife is a big deal!! And to do it right requires just a little bit of extra prep. Think about the kind of photo you want and reverse engineer it. We promise you’ll always treasure the wild joy from this moment, captured on camera.
Who says there’s only one first look on your wedding day? Plan that little bit of extra time for your bridesmaids to see you. You’ll LOVE seeing photos of them flipping out as you take their breath away! If you have a special connection with your Dad, be prepared for him to fight back tears because first looks with a Dad can’t compare to many things!
After your wedding day has come on gone, trust us, you’ll be missing it! Plan to print at least one large photo for your home. Even pick a spot on your walls and get a frame! You’ll have tons of photos from your wedding day and you can get all your faves in your wedding album, but make sure you have at least one grand shot for your home or a collection of images on a photo wall. We adore candids, but make sure you get some photos of you looking at the camera, too!
Grandparents are some of the most special people in our lives. Make sure to carve out a little time to get some sweet candids and portraits of them. It’s not everyday that you can get updated photos with them (most of your photos are likely when you were a kid!). You’ll be really grateful for these beautiful photos.
We LOVE classic reception photos. We’re big fans of all the timeless ambience and romance of golden candlelight—and also sparklers(!) when you exit. And fireworks! On such a special night, it’s totally worth it to plan something memorable!
We hope you loved this round-up of the 6 most powerful wedding photos you need to have! We know you’ll treasure them for all the years to come and they’ll always be some of your absolute most favourite moments—and wedding photos from your big day.
