- Wedding: March 2011
the knot has a pretty comprehensive list for a starting place.
This helped me:
I love the ‘kiss behind the bouquet” photo.
Also get some with each bridesmaid/groomsmen and the whole group.
Get a picture laying down with your FH, and have the photog take a picture looking down at you.
Get interesting photos by placing one of you in front off focus and the other further behind, in focus.
Hugs, holding hands, expressing the love of the day.
Your photographer should know the general shots, and a lot of the rest will flow. You don’t need a big list if he knows what he’s doing 🙂
Don’t use those lists that have 100 “must have wedding shots”.
Is your photographer a pro? They probably already know what shots to get. Now, if this is a student or they’re new to wedding photog than it might be different.
The point of the list is to let them know things that are special/unique about your wedding that they otherwise wouldn’t know about. And to list the group family shots. There’s another thread that had more info, I’ll see if I can find it…
EDIT: Found it. Read the BOTTOM portion of the thread 🙂 http://boards.weddingbee.com/topic/dodid-you-have-a-must-have-photo-op-list
I agree you do not need to list everything – like “bride walking down aisle” somethings are obvious. Think about things that are important to you but may not be obvious to someone else. Like perhaps your friend made the invitation so you want great shots of it.
A pro will know what shots to get throughout the day and should you decide to hire them will likely ask you for a list of specific formals you want taken. Don’t worry about the other stuff!
