Okay okay, so I know you’ve been planning your wedding for months now, and let me tell you, you are going to look absolutely stunning on your big day! But there’s one thing that you might be overlooking: the importance of wedding detail photos.

When I arrive, the first thing I will often ask for is your details so I can take detail shots! I try to make sure that this part is not rushed, because even though these might not be the most important photos of the day, they are still so meaningful and tell your story!

In addition to being a beautiful way to document your special day, wedding detail photos can also be useful for vendors and wedding planners to see how you’ve chosen to style your wedding and get inspo for future events!

Wedding detail photos are photos that capture the small, intricate details of your wedding day. Examples of wedding details include: your wedding dress and veil, your bouquet, shoes, jewelry, your wedding rings, a copy of the invitation, perfume, and any other decorative elements of your wedding. Groom details usually include shoes, tie, suit, boutonniere, and cufflinks but can also include the belt, cologne, vows, or a watch.

I know it might seem like a small thing, but trust me, capturing all the little details that you’ve put so much time and effort into will make a big difference when you look back on your wedding day. So, let me share some tips on how to make sure your wedding detail photos turn out amazing!

1. Gather all your details ahead of time

Before your wedding day, make sure you gather all the details you want photographed, like your wedding dress, shoes, jewelry, veil, and bouquet. Put them in one spot, so that your photographer can easily access them and begin photographing them right away.

2. Don’t forget about the groom’s details

Your groom will also have some details that are important to capture, like his suit, cufflinks, tie, and shoes. Make sure he gathers them ahead of time so that your photographer can take some amazing shots of his details as well.

3. Add personal touches

Adding some personal touches to your details can make them even more special. For example, you could wrap your bouquet with a special ribbon or include a special piece of jewelry that has sentimental value to you.

4. Have fun with it!

Taking photos of your details doesn’t have to be a boring chore. Have fun with it! Incorporate some playful props or include your furry friend in some of the shots. This will make for some unique and fun detail photos that you’ll love looking back on.

Overall, wedding detail photos might seem like a small detail, but they can make a big impact on your wedding day memories. So, make sure you gather all your details ahead of time, add some personal touches, think about the aesthetic of your wedding, and most importantly, have fun with it! I can’t wait to see all your amazing wedding detail photos!
