Are items a must in your photos?

Carine, on October 7, 2022 at 14:08 Posted in Plan a wedding 0 21

I was seeing pictures of wedding items and was wondering if that was a decision, a recommendation or just something your photographer took as a spare?

Is this a must have on your list, do you regret not having it done?

    Such a great idea. I have a few must haves, and the rest is open.

    Awe no, was this before the ceremony?

    I spoke to my photographer, and he is open to a list but also was just going to go with the flow.

    Our photographer was amazing and asked to send a list of family to be added in the photos for getting ready and what shots we wanted to get done. There were a lot taken so that it could be memorable along with our accessories for both the wedding and reception. The welcome package was also taken as well as the little details though the rings were forgotten in the rose cases.

    I like it when it looks well done, but not when it seems like it was an afterthought for sure.

    Love it when the rings are added in flowers, or with the dress and suit.

    I think it's a nice touch to add in to your wedding album! I especially love the shots of rings in the bouquet or adding in a shot of your stationary. Are items a must in your photos? 2

    I think its nice to have these detail shots to look back on incase something happens to the actual items. Like if I were to accidentally lose my wedding earrings, I might like to look back on the pictures. To help make it easier for my photographer, I put all the detail items (jewelry, hair piece, vow books, rings, etc) in one box so everything was already together for her. She did the detail pictures in between the getting ready photos.

    And can't lie, the way the photographers storyboard the item shots really make them feel like more than just stuff.

    Good photographers will know to get detail shots of space and items. It helps tell your story for the day. They won't do it if it means sacrificing other shots of course. My brother in law's videographer missed my father in law's speech because he was stupidly trying to get b-roll of a tea cup. Couldn't find any other moment to film that cup?

    I think it's one of those things I won't go out of my way to do it, but if it's there I won't hate it.

    I guess I will see closer to the date, or if he manages to do something, it's hard to say what they capture.

    I didn't think of having these types of photos taken, we were focusing more onthe family and friends pics. However, I am seeing them more and more and really like the idea so I may include a few of these on our photo request list...

    I am not sure if this is something I want, if he takes pictures fine, but my main focus is like you mentioned the candid shots. My main priority is the girls getting ready, the photos of the guests, ceremony, first dance.

    We had a very non traditional wedding in the sense that we only booked our photographer for the evening and it really was more like a reception that guests were arriving into (5pm-11pm) so it was not important to me to have the photographer photograph certain items such as rings, flowers, etc. however I did give a list of Decor items because I took the time to set them all up - guestbook signing station, welcome sign, food, place settings. These things were important because I am big on details but mainly I asked the photographer to focus on plenty of in the moment action shots, candid photos of guests smiling and laughing - ideally I want to look at the photos and kind of be able to relive all of the fun again - this was important to me. If there is no limit on photos though why not have them all done : )
