I thought I would share with you my top five ‘must have’ wedding photos.

I spend lots of time with my couples before their big day planning their important shots.  We have meetings, put together lists and share photos on Pinterest.  We have planned the ‘must have’ wedding photos long before the day arrives.

Booking the right wedding photographer to capture your day and all the special moments is crucial.  A professional wedding photographer will know where to place themselves for those key moments, be able to act quickly and discreetly to give you images that tell your story. Having been a wedding photographer for quite a few years now I know the key shots of the day that I need to capture and get in the bag.

Every bride-to-be will have a view of the images she wants for her special day.  After all she has been dreaming of this since she was a small girl.  She will want those precious moments captured forever.  That glance as her husband-to-be catches a glimpse of her walking down the aisle, her flower girls frolicking in the summer sunshine, that million dollar bridal gown.

There are so many special moments throughout a wedding day.  Here are five of my favourite “must have” photos that you might want to add to your wedding day picture list…

The Gown

Perhaps my favourite part of the day is all the bridal prep excitement and chaos.  A shot or two of that all important bridal gown draped or hanging is memorable, a mother of the bride fastening the dress and then a bride in all her splendour ready to meet her life partner

The Aisle Shot

Whether it’s a bride walking down the aisle with her father or the moment a groom turns to see his bride for the first time, this really is one of those priceless moments…

The Details

Weddings take months of planning and preparation. I love to capture all those little details that make your day unique and special to you.  It may be the flowers, the cake, table favours, room decorations, I try to capture it all…

A Bride and Groom Moment

Another favourite part of the day for me is taking my Bride and Groom away from the celebrations for just a few moments for those just married bride and groom shots.  There is always time for a kiss photo here, or perhaps a Bride and Groom moment that says “We did it”!  I always feel honoured to share this romantic part of the day with all my gorgeous couples.

Candid Wedding Party Shots

Candid shots with you and your nearest and dearest always provide an image that shows the emotion of the day.  It may be a mother and daughter hug,  a bride showing her maid of honour the ring, or flower girls running and giggling in a meadow.  These are the photos that you will treasure.
