There are many ways in which your professional photographer can set the scene for those looking through your images – even if they weren’t at the wedding. They should consider what they are attempting to capture, and include anything that reflects that.
The background can be crucial, and is perhaps even more important for any pre-wedding shoots. How about where you met, or had your first date? There may be a city centre venue that means a lot to you, or you might want to feature your home or workplace. This helps to tell the story from the start of your relationship, rather than just on the wedding day itself.
Pictures of the bride, groom, bridesmaids or best man getting ready can help to tell the story as the big day unfolds, as can images of you both travelling to the venue or stopping for a quick word with onlookers. If certain rooms or outdoor spaces at the venue are meaningful to you, make sure they are captured in the background for posterity.
Key moments can also make great storytelling shots. The groom’s face as he glimpses his bride, the first kiss, the speeches, the cutting of the cake, the first dance and so on. Groups shots can also help capture that moment in time, as they clearly show who was there to witness the wedding first-hand.
