After-all it’s like I always say.. you might be setting the next big trend in weddings. Here’s the secret for capturing these insta and pin-worthy photos.
BRAND YOUR WEDDING
HAVE STRATEGICALLY PLACED DECOR
From curtains being centered behind you, to having flower filled photos, or the ocean in the backdrop, make sure what’s behind you in captured. Grab your custom decor from a table and style it to where to are shooting. You don’t want all that beautiful decor to go unseen!
HAVE A WELL PLANNED TIMELINE
A thoughtfully planned timeline is down to every 5 minutes of your day, literally. Make sure you allot time on your timeline for special photo ops like the first look, formal shots with your bridal party, with family and golden hour.
LIGHTING IS EVERYTHING
From the ceremony to the reception, don’t neglect lighting. If a room isn’t well lit or in lots of shadows outside it won’t photograph well. Consider upgrading your lighting package with your venue, especially for the reception photos.
FOCUS ON THE CELEBRATION
Don’t loose site of what it’s all about. Focus on marrying the one you love and not stress over every last detail. If you aren’t relaxed it will show all over your photos. Let your photographer capture those perfectly unplanned candid moments and detail shots which are perfect for pinning! And rely on getting photos from your guests when they tag your wedding hashtag!
