Which Photos To Take?

Which Photos To Take?

Here's a BIG list of photographs that your photographer can take at your wedding. You can just print out the page, check off the pictures that you want and then give the list to your photographer. Also, be sure to highlight any particular pictures that you absolutely don't want your photographer to miss!

HINT: Full length pictures capture all the beauty and magnificence of the wedding dress, wedding attire and beautiful scenery or backdrops. Close-up or half length (above the waist) photographs better capture facial expressions and reveal more emotion.
