Everyone wants their wedding photographs to be perfect. After all, you’ve spent ages planning your wedding, picking out the perfect dress, the perfect venue, the perfect decor, and, of course, the perfect partner, so it makes sense that you’d want this to be captured so that you can remember it all forever. Of course, a lot of the work is going to be down to the photographer themselves, but there are a few things that you can do too. Here are six ways that you can ensure you get the best wedding photos possible.

1. Do Your Research
I know that this is an obvious tip, but it’s one that many couples choose to ignore. Before choosing any random photographer, or worse still, picking the cheapest one you can find, you need to do lots of research. Look through their portfolio and testimonials, and make sure that you like their style. If you don’t, then don’t try to change them; Just look elsewhere.

2. Remember Your Location
If you’re travelling to Rome for your wedding, then make sure you find the best Rome wedding photographer, the same as with any other destination. There’s no point in paying for travel and accommodation for someone local to you when those abroad would know where to get the best pictures and can handle the climate.

3. Check Your Makeup
Always make sure to do a hair and makeup trial before your wedding day, and take a camera with you to snap some pictures. This will make sure that your makeup and hair look just as great on screen as they do in real life. You should keep your makeup and hair this way for an entire day so that you can see how it lasts, and figure out if and when you’ll need any touch-ups.

4. Schedule The Day
You’ll likely have a timeline for the day already, but make sure that you’ve included times of the day where you’ll definitely want pictures to be taken. Then, make sure that you schedule lots of time before the pictures are due to be taken, so that, if anything happens to run over, you won’t get stressed, and your photos can be taken on time.

5. Know What You Want
There are a few photos that wedding photographers almost always shoot, like the first dance, the kiss at the altar, and walking out of the venue, but there are going to be some that you want, that your photographer won’t have thought of. It’s essential that you figure these out before the wedding so that you don’t have to try and rush them all just before your photographer leaves.

6. Relax And Have Fun
The best wedding photos are the ones where the bride and group look genuinely relaxed and happy, so stop stressing and enjoy yourself. The more you try to look happy, the less you really will; It needs to look natural and honest, so just go with the flow, and have as much fun as you possibly can.

You’re going to cherish your wedding photos forever, so use the advice above to get the best ones you can.

  1. Great list. I'd be interested to know how many people actually do go for the cheaper option when it comes to photographers.
