The Must-Have Wedding Photos in Rochester, MN


We want to ensure that your big day is masterfully documented and that all begins with choosing the right photographer for you in terms of media type, general aesthetic, and experience. We get it- planning a wedding can be a lot of work, so naturally, this is something you need to hand over to a professional. A good Rochester wedding photographer ultimately knows how to manipulate light, work for a crowd, and keep you comfortable and as confident as possible in front of a camera. The bond between a photographer and couples is trust.

We do, however, understand that you want to head into your big day prepared, with a clear picture of which shots you can expect to see in your wedding album.

Must-Have Wedding Photos in Rochester, MN

Ahead, you’ll discover images that our Rochester photographers strongly suggest you take. As for the specific photos that you shouldn’t stress about being captured? Don’t fret over details like bar signage, cocktail tables, or favors, they’re not necessarily important for the story of the day and the story of the couple. As for shots to completely avoid? All of our photographers agree that reception table-to-table shots should be skipped. We feel it takes away from documenting genuine moments.

At the end of the day, though, you shouldn’t feel any worry. Put yourself in good hands and remember to have that trust.
