Wedding Photos You MUST Get

While the memory of your wedding will always remain with you, there is something special about capturing those images and keeping them forever through wedding photography. While some couples may hire a family friend to take their photos, for a majority of couples, the wedding photography is one of the biggest aspects of their budget. Because of this, we think it's extremely important to know exactly what you want to get ahead of time, and get able to give you photographer a good idea of what you want to be captured at your wedding.

Here at Seven Springs Winery, we love to host weddings at our wedding venue at the Lake of the Ozarks, and there's nothing more beautiful than photos taken with our vineyard in the background. As you plan your wedding, here are a few shots you'll want to keep in mind:

The Bride

There are going to be several shots that you would like to have of you in your dress, whether it's a full length, the back of your dress, your bouquet, and others. Here is a list of shots you'll most likely want to get with other people.

  • Bride with parents together and separately
  • Bride with grandparents
  • Bride with siblings
  • Bride with maid or matron of honor and each bridesmaid
  • Bride with other attendants
  • Bride with groomsmen

The Groom

From little details like the fun socks your groom is wearing, or the cufflinks that belonged to his grandfather - your photographer will want to know that you want photos of these details. You'll also want to capture these images as well:

  • Groom with parents together and separately
  • Groom with grandparents
  • Groom with siblings
  • Groom with best man
  • Groom with groomsmen
  • Groom with other attendants
  • Groom with bridesmaids

The Bride and Groom

Do you have special poses that you've seen on Pinterest that you would like to accomplish on your wedding day? Share these photos with your photographer. Better yet, create a Pinterest board of the photos you like and share it with them. This can give them a great idea of what you'd like to capture.

  • Bride & Groom together
  • Bride & Groom with each set of parents
  • Bride & Groom with entire wedding party
  • Close-up of the rings
  • Photos with marriage certificate

The Ceremony

Your photographer will know exactly what shots to capture during the ceremony, and you can trust them to choose the exact moment. If you will have something specific happening during the ceremony, though, you'll want to give them a heads up. Like, if you'll be doing a special song on the left side of the sanctuary after the pastor speaks, let them know so they can have the best angle and be there at the right time. Will you be lighting a unity candle towards the back of the stage? Maybe you should tell your photographer how to get the best shot or be willing to stage it afterward.

The Reception

From photos of your and your groom arriving at the reception to shots of the first dance and cake cutting - there are many photos you'll want to have from this party! Give your photographer a schedule of events so they know what to expect through the evening. Do you have special guests that you want photos with? Like maybe your best friend from school, your aunt, and uncle that you are close with, and your neighbor's child that you babysat. Your photographer won't know about these details, but if you tell them to look for these moments and capture them, they can help you keep track.
