As some of you know, i have been working on my parent albums. When deciding which pictures to put in, i like to balance them (like in terms of content/people in the in the pics). So this is something i only really noticed from working on the albums – my photog took a whole bunch of pics of just me AND me and Darling Husband together. And some of my solo shots are the ones i have received the most complements on so of course i want to use them in my album. But now of course i wish i had some more solo pics of DH! Its not a huge deal, but if i could go back in time, i would ask my photog to get solo shots of both of us. Of course in the moment, i was not really paying attention to anything and just following her instructions. But i thought i would pass this tip on for future brides in case you are like me. something to think of since typically the focus is on the bride, but i really think it should be on the bride and groom equally.

ya, like the few solo shots i have of Darling Husband on our wedding day are more in the photojournalistic style – like him waiting at the altar for me, or him coming down the stairs before our first look, etc. Whereas i have some niced posed ones of me on a spiral staircase, standing in the foyer, on the beach, etc…. at our AHR, i also didn’t think of this, but lucky for me i had friend act as a “second shooter” and while the photog i hired was taking pics of me and my BMs, my friend got some amazing shots of Darling Husband byhimself which now i am so happy i have. but it was a fluke that we got them.

@dynamic_duo: Same here, SIL’s partener fortunately took photos of the Mr, before the ceremony so am using those to put into the album.

I agree! I also noticed that we have a limited number of pics of the fellas getting ready. Something I’d re-do if we could as well. I think the future brides will appreciate these tips.
