We absolutely love shooting details. It’s so much fun to feature all the little things that make up your day. It also serves as a great time for us to “warm up” our creative juices. We ask our couples to give us about 30-45 minutes to shoot details and thankfully they all oblige. Probably because as a bride, you’ve spent so much time picking out and putting all those little details together.. you want to get ’em photographed! 30-45 minutes may seem like a long time, but when it comes to arranging details those minutes FLY by.. so to help your photographer out and get the best detail shots possible.. follow these few tips..
Don’t forget about your Groom. Grooms details are something a little extra we like to photograph. It’s his day as well, and we want to make sure we capture the few items that your future husband will be wearing when he walks down the aisle. His watch, custom bowtie, leather belt and shoes are the main items to keep in mind. And don’t forget to include groomsmen gifts as well (especially if they are handmade knives and mallets).
Here’s a handy-dandy checklist for ya.. print it out (or pin for later) and ask a bridesmaid or family member to help make sure all these things are ready to go for your photographer. They will love you and you will get some gorgeous detail shots without veering from your timeline.
