8 Things You Don’t Want to Miss Shooting

I love taking photos. Well, as you can see, I am a wedding photographer. I particularly love shooting wedding occasions. I feel that there is something mysterious about shooting wedding that in any other occasions. I am not the one attending the ceremony but with every wedding’s that I do shoot, I can totally feel the love atmosphere. I would feel really delighted to be able to shoot their precious moments. But with every wedding, there are things that you shouldn’t miss shooting. Every little detail is already important.

Here are 8 little things that you shouldn’t want to miss taking a picture:

1. Bride solo

All the brides are beautiful especially on their wedding days. You could see the glow from their cheeks. You could see their wide smile. They look happy. I particularly want to shoot bride solos, from their preparation, make-up, dress, poses, the ceremony, the reception and until the end. As I look at the pictures that I have taken of the bride, I could clearly see their happiness. I can see their nervousness. Physically you may not be able to see these things, but I know it in my pictures and I am glad that I could share it to them, their feelings during their wedding duration.

2. Groom solo

Aside from brides being beautiful, grooms were also handsome. Grooms tend to look cool and mostly joke around during shooting and that’s what I also like. It’s making the shooting very comfortable. I definitely don’t want to miss shooting every groom because I also need to pair up their solos from their brides.

3. The couple’s ring

The ring is the symbol of the couple’s union. This is really symbolic and taking a picture of it before they exchanged vows is really a must for me. It may just be an ordinary thing, a little detail but it is definitely important.

4 The Preacher’s bible

The preacher’s bible is religious in its atmosphere in a sense and when I take a photo of it, it becomes so meaningful. Even if I am not religious, I would still take a picture of the preacher’s bible.

5. The outfits and footwear

I love to take pictures of the different outfits of the attendees as well as their footwear. And when I do take one, I would also blur the face of the wearer. It will make the picture appealing and mystery. And no, I don’t have any weird foot fetish in taking pictures of the footwear. It’s just a matter of photo creativity.

6. The reception

The reception is where all of the attendees gathered to celebrate the union of the newlywed. In that reception, that will be the moment where emotional feelings are now being shared and shown. I also see many emotional faces of the newlywed’s parents and relatives there. Every emotions I wanted to capture and you definitely don’t want to miss it.

7. The foods

I love foods! Pardon me for taking pictures of all the foods serve but I definitely don’t want to miss it. I guess you can say that I am also a food photographer.

8. The Kiss

Ah, the kiss! The rings and the kiss, both are symbolic. The ring that bonds and the kiss of true love. In every wedding, a photograph of the newlywed’s kiss is not anymore optional but a must.

These are the 8 things that I definitely don’t want to miss capturing in my camera. Some of these may be absurd, not to your liking or even optional but capturing photographs of these enhances the photographic memory that I can give to my clients.
