As a wedding planner, I know that creating a shot list for your wedding day can help ensure that your photographer captures all of the important moments and details. Here is an ultimate guide to planning your wedding day shot list:
Getting Ready: Consider capturing the getting-ready process, including shots of the bride and groom getting dressed, hair and makeup, and accessories.
Ceremony: Capture important moments during the ceremony such as the processional, exchange of vows and rings, first kiss, and recessional.
Family Portraits: Plan to take group portraits of the families, including parents, grandparents, and siblings.
Bridal Party Portraits: Take portraits of the bride and groom with their bridal party, including bridesmaids, groomsmen, and flower girls/ring bearers.
Couple Portraits: Schedule a time for the photographer to capture portraits of the bride and groom together, both during daylight and after sunset for unique lighting.
Reception: Capture the details of the reception space, including table settings, floral arrangements, and decor. Also, consider taking photos of the cake, centerpieces, and place cards.
Special Moments: Make a list of any special moments you want your photographer to capture, such as the first dance, cake cutting, bouquet and garter toss, and speeches.
Candid Moments: Allow your photographer to capture candid moments throughout the day, such as the bride and groom laughing with friends, guests mingling, and emotional moments.
Venue: Capture the venue's architecture, outdoor locations, and any other unique features that make it special.
Personal Details: Make sure to include any personal details that make your wedding unique, such as a special family heirloom or a meaningful decoration.
Remember to work closely with your photographer to ensure that they capture the shots that are most important to you. This guide will help you create a comprehensive shot list that covers all of the important moments and details of your special day.
