Complete Wedding Photography Guide


Finding the perfect person to capture your special day can be a challenge! As a photographer, there is a lot riding on the ability to capture every single moment of your day. With 8 hours of moving pieces, it is easy to get lost in the stress of the event. We wanted to create a guide to wedding photography that walks through the different shots your photographer should be getting. Here are traditional photos that our photographers make sure to get every time. Every wedding is different, be sure to make yours, original!
