Your Wedding Day Detail Photo Checklist

May 2, 2022

All the little details are what tell your story! 

I absolutely love capturing the small details that you’ve put so much thought into for your wedding day! Whether it’s your grandmother’s ring, your wedding day perfume, or your handwritten vows, these small details are what tell the story of your day and relationship. When I photograph weddings, I typically will spend the first 30 minutes or so taking photos of your details as you begin to get ready. 

PRO TIP: To make this a smooth process, have all of your detail items gathered in a box or bag so you don’t need to worry about finding these things on the morning of your wedding. This way I can get started with pictures right away and you won’t have to have any added stress.
