Wedding Photography Planning Tips

Roberta May

Using a wedding program to designate photo opportunities and sticking to classic themes will allow you to acquire a series of beautiful photographs that will stand the test of time. Choose a photographer, based upon their skill level. Afterward, plan how each photo session will be executed.  

The Wedding Photographer

A photographer who uses a classic photography style will capture images that are well-defined and tasteful. Some people choose photographers with a flamboyant style, which may be of interest if owning a series of unique wedding photographs is preferred.

If you want your photographs to look fresh and alluring throughout the course of your lifetime, seeking a photographer who takes modest photos that truly capture the moment may be preferred. Closely look over a photographer's portfolio, prior to making a commitment to purchase pictures from a photography professional. Color and black and white photographs can be purchased through a wedding photographer.

Your Program

Your wedding program should include all of the phases of your wedding ceremony and reception. Photos can be taken during the exchange of vows and the celebration afterward. They can also be taken before the ceremony begins. Your program will help you determine how many backdrops your photographer will need.

You can also designate a set amount of photographs for each photo phase. The price point that a photographer charges may help you decide upon a photo amount for each phase of the photoshoot.

You will likely want most of the pictures to be representative of you and your spouse. Keep this in mind when creating your wedding program and contemplating where a series of photos will be taken. Your wedding photographer may take a mix of solo photos and group photos. You have full control of determining how each picture will be taken and who will be captured on film.

Decor, Furnishings, And Clothing

Decor, furnishings, and clothing that will be captured on film should be cohesive. The colors, textures, and styles of each item that will be photographed should be carefully assessed. Performing a comparison of all the items that will be featured at your wedding and reception can help you decide if any of the items need to be omitted or exchanged for alternate ones that may look more appealing on film.

Choose classic clothing types that are traditional colors. Make sure that everyone in your wedding party is assigned to wear garments that will be complementary to what you and your future spouse will be wearing.
