Make sure the bride has pictures with all of her siblings. Hopefully its obvious to have pictures taken with parents but don’t forget your brothers and sisters. Have pictures with just one sibling at a time and all siblings together. And of course do the same for the groom. Sometimes the photographer only focuses on the bride but the grooms siblings are just as important! This also helps balance out the layouts when making a wedding photobook.
If either the bride or groom has achild/children then be sure to have pictures of the child with the parent. This day is a big day for the child(ren) too!
You want a touching set of pictures? Get pictures of the bride with just dad. If you have a staircase, have some fun with it! Get a picture of the bride at the top of the steps. Get a second picture with Dad at the bottom of the steps looking up at his little girl! Have a third shot of the bride on the last step or two holding hands with Dad. Make the last picture of the bride with Dad kissing her hand or cheek.
Pictures of the Wedding Party
When you gather together for the group pictures of the bridesmaids or groomsman then be creative! Photographers often like taking photo journalistic pictures. Have the bride lay sideways and the groomsman holding her. Have the groomsman hold the bridesmaids flowers and the groom hold the brides flowers. Sometimes the silliest pictures are the cutest. If everyone is gathered at a park look around for pretty flowers, gazebo, white fence, stones or big boulders. If anyone is a little theatrical, ask them to help pose everyone creatively.
Make sure to have individual pictures taken of the bride with each bridesmaid and the same for groom and the groomsman. You never know in the future when you just want a picture of you and the person you asked to be in the wedding.
Pictures of the Wedding
Pictures of the groomsmen walking grandmothers down the aisle, each bridesmaid walking down the aisle, ring bearer with flower girl, the bride with her father, bride and groom kissing are a must! But what about pictures of each of the moms sitting in the pews/chairs? Nice touch.
Ask the photographer to take non-people pictures. For instance, the runner down the aisle that has flower petals on them. The bows at the end of the pews. Flowers set out on display in remembrance of a family member. The picture displayed of a deceased parent or grandparent who has passed away and couldn’t be there. The glass jars filled with sand (done during ceremony picture taken after). These are nice touches to any wedding album.
Pictures of the Wedding Reception
Pictures of the newlyweds entering the reception can be some fun pictures along with family and friends having a good time during the reception!
If this happens to be a second marriage for one or both of the newlyweds, make sure thephotographer snaps a few pictures of the child(ren) with their parent. Also, ask the photographer to get a few quick shots of each of your parents with their siblings if its possible. One way to make this happen naturally is having a picture of people sitting at each table. This is a great way to remember everyone who was part of your special day!
Finally, please don’t forget to get a picture of the cake!
*Tip: Invitation, program, cards
Remember you can scan any invitation, program or card to add to the Wedding Scrapbook. Cards with special messages written inside are such a sweet memory to be captured and included in your scrapbook!
**Tip for keeping dust off of proofs if they are not digital
Put your proofs in a small album with plastic covers that you can slip your pictures in and out of easily. This is so important for preserving your pictures. Creative Memories has Mini Power Sort Boxes that are made of polypropylene which will protect the pictures from dust and sunlight for generations.
