Wedding photographs become timeless memories that the couple can cherish throughout their lives. Picture-perfect moments captured by professional wedding photographers will make you smile each time you revisit the big day.

If you’re a bride-to-be, take a moment to imagine your upset if your wedding photographer drops the ball on catching that one perfect moment, or lets you down in some other way? We don’t mean to scare you, but this often happens when you don’t choose someone as professional as the folks at TLIC.

Regardless of your choice of wedding photo staff, we care about you having the big day of your dreams. This is why we have compiled a must-have wedding photo list that you can discuss with your photographer, so that whenever you look back on your wedding, you will shed tears of joy, not regret!

#1- The Vows

Perhaps the most important moment of the wedding, the vow exchange is exciting and memorable for all couples. While your wedding videographer will ideally capture the moment perfectly, you should also ask the wedding photographer to make these moments timeless with their photographs.

#2- First-Look  

Sometimes, couples don’t see each other before the wedding to keep the excitement alive, but that doesn’t mean that you need to miss out on the first look photography. Ask your wedding photographers to capture both the bride’s entry and the groom’s reaction as the love of his life walks down the aisle to say ‘I do.’

#3 Father-Daughter Dance

One of the most touching images in a wedding is that of a proud father walking his beautiful daughter towards the man she loves. A moment that is even more precious is when a teary-eyed dad dances with his little girl, remembering the joys of her childhood, when he was the only man in her life. Talk to your wedding photographer — these moments cannot be missed!

#4 Canvas For Memories

Each wedding moment is memorable for the couple — interactions between close family and friends, support from the best man and maid of honor, and even those tiny, adorable bridal party shenanigans. Unfortunately, since the bride and groom are going to be extremely busy, they might miss some things throughout the day.

The good news is that they can relive these moments through their wedding photography later on. This is why it’s important for the photographer to capture as much as possible: guests, décor, food, cake, and other important parts of the reception and ceremony.  

If you reside in Maryland, Pennsylvania, Virginia, or DC, you can partner with our team of experienced wedding videographers and photographers to preserve your big day in the form of high-quality photos and videos that keep your memories alive for years to come.
