Utilizing the “getting-ready” still photos we took from our own wedding and the rest we took of Charlotte + Grayson’s wedding from details to first dance, we can demonstrate storytelling through wedding photography.
A wedding day is made up of parts:
- Getting Ready: hair & make-up, dress, shoes, tie, jacket, bride, groom, invitations, rings, dress, shoes
- On-Location Details: ceremony decor such as alter and flowers
- First Look: Groom sees Bride before the ceremony
- Ceremony: guests, groom, flower girl, ring bearer, procession line, bride + father of the bride, mother and father of the groom, kiss
- Portraits: This can include bride and groom creative portraits and or family portraits
- Reception Details: reception decor, lights, table, place settings, cake, guest book, guests, atmosphere, toasts and speeches
- Cake Cut: Bride and Groom
- First Dance: bride and groom and/or bride and father-of-the-bride
No two weddings are alike so not all weddings will have each and every one of the aforementioned parts, but every wedding tells the story of the individual couples.
Just be sure to get a variety of shots from all the sections that your couple mentions is important to them and you will have produced plenty of wonderful wedding day memories for your friends and clients!
