Check List For Wedding Photography

 

Getting Ready For the Wedding…

These shots should include people who are with the bride and groom as they prepare for the most important day of their lives. For example, you may be able to get a shot of the brides mother doing her hair or makeup. A shot like that will be cherished by both the bride and her mother.

The Bride…
