Some Handy lists for your Photographer
So, you’ve got the big day coming up, and you want those wedding pics to be perfect, right? Well, here’s a pro tip: before your big day send your photographer a quick email with a list of your closest friends and family names (the VIPs) and must-have shots.
By now, you should’ve hammered out the deets with your photographer, but if not, there’s no time like the present. Just make sure they’ve got the names of the important folks. And here’s a little extra I recommend– add the mobile numbers of mums, dads, MC and anyone else you are super close to. Trust me, it can be a game-changer if someone ends up MIA on the day.
They can text Uncle Bob to hustle over for the group shot or reach out to your BFF to catch that spontaneous moment you don’t want to miss.
Break down your list by different parts of the day – getting ready, ceremony, party time – and spell out the shots you’re dreaming of.
Make a clear list of the shots you absolutely want for each part of the day – whether it’s those classic family portraits, spontaneous candid moments, or any other special elements you want to cherish forever. Take it a step further by digging into your photographer’s previous work and sharing the shots that made you go, “Yep, that’s the one!” It helps them get a feel for your style.
And hey, don’t forget to do a bit of detective work on your wedding venue. Scope it out online or, if you’re feeling adventurous, go for a pre-wedding visit with your photographer. This way, you can brainstorm and figure out all the cool spots for those picture-perfect moments.
Wedding photography is all about vibes and communication. Your photographer wants to make your vision come to life, but they need your help. Take some time to lay out your wishes, and then send that list over to be super clear on your expectations.
By doing this, you’re not just making your photographer’s job easier, you’re also setting yourself up for some seriously epic memories. So, go ahead, shoot that email, and get ready to have a wedding album that’s as unforgettable as the day itself!
