Your wedding day is an event you never want to forget. You want to have every moment captured, which means you will have your wedding photographer present when you share your first wedded kiss, cut the cake, have your first dance, and share other common wedding traditions. If you want to make your day truly memorable, don't forget about the unique, often forgotten memories that you will want to capture as well. Here are some unique wedding photo ideas you can try.
Parents' reactions to your 'firsts'
Have your wedding photographer bring along an assistant to capture the faces of both sets of parents as you and your betrothed go through your vows, share a kiss, and enjoy other rituals of your wedding day. These are special moments that are often forgotten or not even noticed as you are thrown in the midst of your big day, but you just may find that photo of your mother wiping a tear of joy to be your very favorite in the end.
Details of your event
The cake, the rings, the flowers, the venue itself—these are all parts of the wedding that should be captured up close in full detail for you to cherish forever. Not every photo has to be about a guest or the bride and groom. Sometimes it's the vibrant photo of a centerpiece with the couple in the background that becomes a real show-stealer. Have your wedding photographer capture guests on the move as well, including signing your guest book, walking in from their vehicles, or admiring the establishment's decor to give all the still shots a greater storyline to remember later.
Before and afters
Your wedding photographer can arrive at the event while things are being set up so they can capture the bride's dress being delivered or the groom stepping into his shoes. They can take shots of the chairs being arranged for guests and the centerpieces being laid out perfectly before guests arrive. These intimate moments are some that you may never see otherwise. Likewise, they can be there to take shots of things being taken down to create a beautiful closing chapter for your wedding photo album you can cherish always.
Your wedding day can be caught on film in so many amazing ways. If you let your photographer be creative in the ways they take pictures your big day, you can have a photo book full of delightful memories you will love to share with your family forever.
