Your wedding photographer was hired to capture the essence of who you and your soon to be are. A huge part of that is capturing the details you have dreamed of seeing come true on your wedding day. Providing a few of the items that mean the most to you on this day will go a long way with your photographer. This post will provide suggestions of items to think about having on wedding day. It will help in being sure your photographer has enough to work with.
Below you will see more than 3 items as what we suggest you pack for your photographer to use on wedding day. We aren’t saying you should use all of the items we are suggesting. What we are doing is simply sharing with you a few items you can provide to your photographer to help them showcase more of who you are as a couple in your detailed wedding day photos. See what we suggest below:
If you wait until the wedding day to gather your stationery, you will only have a program available. Pulling together all of the pretty paper that was a part of your wedding planning journey, as well as everything your guests will see at the wedding from programs to menu cards gives your photographer a range to work magic for your wedding photos.
What are detailed wedding photos without pretty blooms? We are partial because we do both planning and design for weddings. However, you have to admit that the addition of flowers makes everything better. The more natural the details, the more creative your photographer can be with your photos.
So this one is perspective because perfume speaks to all that is feminine and girly for us. We see perfume and we think soft and sweet. Using a bottle of the fragrance you plan to wear on wedding day in your detail photos also serves as a sweet reminder of your day for years to come. Scents represent things to people and seeing a photo of the special scent worn on wedding day with all of the other sweet details, such as your bouquet and jewelry, can only add to your happiness.
A special way to include loved ones who are no longer physically with you is to have something of theirs with you on your wedding day. If you have an heirloom passed down from earlier generations, you should provide it on wedding day to your photographer. This can include a mirror, a ring box, or something that resonates with who you are and your wedding details.
Having a ring box takes away the potential of the ring looking awkwardly place on top of whatever your photographer could find that looked presentable enough to capture. It adds to the beauty of your photos when the ring box is a bit more embellished than the normal ring box.
This is again something your designer might have ready. Ribbon & linen, just like the blooms, simply soften any of the items chosen for your detailed photos.
The following items will most certainly be with you on your wedding day, but having them ready and available for you photographer helps to guarantee their use in your detailed photos.
All of the rings for the ceremony.
Any wedding day accessories such as earrings, bracelets, cufflinks, etc.
Wedding day stilettos, booties, dress shoes or even sneakers.
If you are writing your own vows, a beautiful way to store them is in a vow book. The books can also be a part of your detailed wedding shots.
As explained earlier, all of these items are not necessary. Just choose the two or three you like and most feel speak best to who you are and the look and feel of your wedding day.
Until next time…
be sweet & happy planning!
