Wedding and Engagement Photography Checklist
Are you getting married soon or know someone who is? If so, then you know that wedding planning can be a lot of work. One thing that you don’t want to worry about is your photography. That’s why we put together this NOVA wedding photography checklist to help keep you organized! This will ensure that your photos turn out beautifully and that you have no stress on the big day.
Hire Photographer & Videographer
The first thing on your checklist should be to find a good photographer and/or videographer. This is someone who you will be trusting with one of the most important days of your life, so make sure to do your research. Ask around for recommendations or look at online portfolios to get an idea of their style. If you need help getting started, check out photographers and videographers who are part of Hunt Country Celebrations vetted network of wedding professionals.
Once you’ve found a photographer you like, it’s time to start thinking about what kind of photos you want. Do you want traditional posed shots or more candid moments? What about engagement photos? Start making a list of the must-have shots that you want and share it with your photographer. They will be able to help you plan out the best way to get those photos on your big day.
Now that you have a photographer and an idea of the kind of photos you want, it’s time to start thinking about logistics. When and where will the photos be taken? If you’re doing engagement photos, make sure to schedule them far enough in advance so that you can use them for save-the-dates or to display at your wedding. For the wedding day itself, think about the timeline of events and where you want photos to be taken. Again, your photographer will be able to help you with this but it’s helpful to have an idea of what you want in advance.
Finally, don’t forget to enjoy your big day! The planning and the photos are important but at the end of the day, it’s all about celebrating your love with family and friends. Congratulations and happy planning!
