Wedding Photography Details

Different things matter to different couples. However, if you’re going for a timeless approach to your wedding there are a few details that you should consider including in your photos. Keep reading to find out what those details are!

The Rings

One photo shot that you’ll definitely want to get is of both of your rings. Your rings are excellent details to capture because they represent your commitment and are a visual symbol of your love. If you’re not sure how you want to get a picture of your ring, consider speaking with your photographer beforehand and letting them know what you’re looking for.

The Dress

If your dress has details like lace or beads, then that’s something that you’ll probably want to capture. One of the best parts about a shot like this is that you don’t need the full couple, meaning the photographer can take this photo while you’re getting ready. This will save you time and make sure that you’ve reserved the rest of the shots for when the couple needs to be physically together.

Getting Ready

Another timeliness photo to consider taking is of the couple getting ready. Making sure that you take this photo is a great way to remember all aspects of the day. Remember, the ceremony isn’t the only important part!


Many photographers will capture the bride getting ready, but it’s also fun to have pictures of the groom preparing as well! If you’ve hired a team of photographers, consider having them split up so that multiple different moments can be captured.

The Bouquet

If you’re someone who loves flowers, then you’ll definitely want to be sure that you have pictures of the bouquet. When it comes to things like your dress and rings, you’ll be able to keep them forever. This isn’t always the case when it comes to your wedding bouquet. Because of this, making sure that you get pictures of your bouquet is a great way to memorialize it and ensure that you’ll always be able to remember what the blooms on your big day looked like.


Getting wedding pictures done often requires a high level of collaboration between the couple and the photographer. Don’t be afraid to speak up about what you want or even make a list of desired shots to give to your photographer beforehand. Remember that your photographer is there to capture your big day, so that shots that you want taken are what matters most!
