The Bride’s Guide to Pretty Pictures

Feb 8, 2008 | Weddings

The more weddings I photograph, the more I think to myself, “oh, I wish I’d talked with the couple about how to get the most out of their getting ready photos”, or “I wonder if the couple had thought about how to stand during the ceremony beforehand to get the best photos”, or “wow, these lights that the band uses are GREAT for the dancing shots”.

The thing is, how are you going to know these things – or even consider the fact that there are ways to get more out of your wedding photography – if no one ever tells you?

So, here I am, hoping to educate you, my loyal blog readers, in how to get the most out of your wedding photography. And it doesn’t matter if you’re planning to hire me or another awesome photographer – the tips here will apply to almost any wedding, and to pretty much every good photographer. So pass around the link and help out your friends – at the end of the day, all you really have left after your wedding are your new husband, your wedding photos, and a very impractical but magnificently beautiful white dress.

I’ll be writing a new installment whenever I have time (part one coming soon), and hopefully at least once every two weeks. I’ll link the posts here, as they happen. Happy reading, brides!
