Your wedding is, unarguably, one of the best moments of your life. As such, we often spend months or even years planning carefully for our wedding day. We want it to be just right. The music, wedding dress, flowers, reception, etc. We just want everything to be perfect. Even the photos. Yes, the photos. Your wedding lasts for a few hours and becomes a memory afterward. The wedding photos, on the other hand, can last forever as a beautiful reminder of that day – one of the best days of your life. This is why I advise couples to be picky with who they choose for their wedding photographer New York.
You only have one shot at it. After that day, you will have only your memories and pictures that were taken. Therefore, it is crucial to hire only a professional wedding photographer for the job.
If you are needing some ideas for how get a picture perfect wedding, then, you are in luck! We have compiled a few tips to make your day the best. Please read on!
Create a List of Must-have Photos
To get the perfect album, it is crucial to make a list of all the photos you want your photographer to capture. You’ve got a full plate already. Do not wait until that day to start instructing your photographer. Take the time to make the list now and get it to your photographer before the big day.
Don’t Forget to Take Some Tissues
Yes, it sounds basic, but the little things are the things most often forgotten. Your wedding day will be littered with lots of activities that will keep you moving all day long. If nothing else, dancing most definitely will make you sweat. And sweating can ruin your photos. Fortunately, tissues can help keep you dry all day.
Have a Clean Ring
Your goal is to have perfect photos that highlight your big day. Of course, your ring will be captured too. If your ring is dirty, it may not be obvious to your wedding guests, but it will be captured by the camera. Bring a ring cleaning kit with you and clean off any smears as soon as you notice them. Keep it sparkling!
Touch Up Makeup Set
You could spend hours on end perfecting your makeup or even hire a professional makeup artist to do it for you, just to have it ruined by the overwhelming emotions of the day or sweat from dancing and other activities. A sweaty face or ruined makeup is not what you want in your wedding photo album. Hence, having a touch up makeup set should be part of your accessories for the day.
Your big day, as I mentioned before, is filled with lots of activities that could have you looking exhausted in your photos. A good way to stay fresh is to stay hydrated. Be sure to come with a water bottle so you can get a drink of water throughout the day. Remember, sipping from a cup will ruin your lipstick. You don’t want that. Use a water bottle that has a straw. Keep the glow by staying hydrated!
