Wedding Day Photography Tips!
Provided by Gina at

Your wedding day can be hectic and you will be on a tight time schedule.Beata_Bouquet
Decide before hand what will be the most important pictures of your special day? For most couples it is their portraits. Decide on a location and give yourself extra time at least an hour or more, including one indoor and one outdoor location for variety.

Getting ready pictures are also important, give at least 45 minutes. This is a great time to take all the detail pictures of the dress, shoes, rings, bouquet, invitations and rings. Plus all the excitement putting on your fabulous dress.

Special Gift for the Groom!
What’s popular now is a sexy bridal lingerie session CD, which can be done on your wedding day. What better gift to give your new husband after your honeymoon, he won’t believe his eyes.

Group pictures have a list ready so you don’t forget anybody. Allow about 5 minutes per group, average time for group shots is 30 minutes.

Most couples skip on the portraits and give several hours for party pictures. After the first 30 minutes you will have more than plenty of them.

Why not sneak out and take couple of romantic pictures under the night sky and the glowing lights.

Several times in the past few months I’ve had customers ask if they can transport their flowers in the trunk of their car. I gently ask them if they would transport a puppy that way. They look at me shocked and say, vehemently, “NO WAY”. They then quickly realize why I asked that seemingly silly question. The puppy would die in the 140 degree trunk … and so would the flowers.

NOTE: You’ll be busy, busy, busy on your special day, and it might be convenient to have Uncle Henry pick up the flowers for you. Be sure to tell him to NOT put the flowers in the trunk of the car. You might even want Uncle Henry to read these tips on how to transport wedding flowers. He may embarrass himself later after having too much Champagne and doing the Hula with Aunt Gertrude, but he won’t be embarrassed by ruining your flowers.
