Despite your best efforts to be “in the moment” on your wedding day, it will pass all too quickly and soon be just a memory. That’s why your wedding photos are so important! You’ll treasure them as one of the only tangible reminders of your special day.
In recent years, it’s become common to compile a wedding photo checklist for your photographer detailing the specific photos you’d like them to capture. This can be a great way to start a conversation with your photographer beforehand to help them understand the kind of photos you’re hoping to see of your big day.
Every wedding photographer has a different rhythm, so some may be more receptive to a shot list than others. That’s why it’s important to chat about it well in advance so you’re 100% on the same page!
To help you get started, I’ve put together a Wedding Photo Checklist PDF to help you identify the important details, people, and moments you’ll want to look back on. Each wedding is unique, so feel free to make adjustments and add anything that is specific to your celebration!
