5 Wedding Moments We Promise to Capture || Philadelphia Wedding Photographer || BG Productions Photography and Videography

I’ve seen a lot of brides and friends posting lists of 5, 10, even 172 Wedding Pictures not to Miss. As a professional wedding photographer I find the lists to be just a little too detailed. Of course we’re going to get a shot of you walking down the aisle, of course we’re going to get a shot of your first kiss; when you’re planning your list of must haves for your photographer keep in mind these moments that we promise to capture if they happen.

1.  Pictures of the Bride’s Accessories.

Every wedding we shoot we make sure to take a picture of the dress, the shoes, the rings, and any other accessories the bride (and the groom if we are shooting him too) has.  We know how much time and meaning all of those details have and we want to make sure we get them for you.  We’re also going to try to make sure that your dress shot is unique.

2. Bride and Bridesmaids Getting Ready

As long as your photographer is going to be there when you get ready, and he/she should be there, they will be taking pictures of you getting ready.  If your photographer gets there and you didn’t take their advice and you’re already dressed, you might be out of luck.  But that’s why your photographer should be going over things like when to get dressed and other timeline information.  We especially aren’t going to miss the moment when your dress is getting zipped or buttoned – we might ask if you care about being photographed in your undies, but we’ll be sure to take any picture you’re comfortable with.

3.  Any Candid Moment that Can’t be planned

This includes, but is not limited to, dad kissing bride on forehead before walking down the aisle, groom tearing up at first look, mom crying during vows, etc.  Your photographer is there to capture these moments throughout the day as they happen.  If your dad is going to kiss your forehead or cry while walking you down the aisle, you better believe we’re going to be there to take a picture.  But remember that your photographer can’t take pictures of things that don’t happen.

4. Anyone walking down the Aisle

Photographers know that you chose to have the people in your wedding for a reason.  We know that they have been there by your side to help plan your big day, and have probably been by your side for countless other important moments in your life.  We’re going to make sure we get a shot of your bridal party, parents, kids, dogs, and anyone else you send down the aisle!  Just don’t forget to tell them to smile before they head down!

5. Big Events that are Standard in Most Weddings

Your first dance, first kiss, cake cutting, garter throwing, etc.  Your photographer has probably been to more weddings than you have.  Many couples are choosing to omit parts of a wedding day that we once considered standard, but we’ll talk to you before the day to find out what you’ve decided to keep in and what you’ve nixed.  We don’t want to miss the emotions of your first dance or when the groom lets you smash the cake in your face!

We care about all of our couples so much, and capturing their day is so important to us.  We’d be heartbroken if we missed an important moment.  But don’t forget along the way that we’re the professionals and we know how to shoot a wedding.  Now there are absolutely shots that you should tell us to take throughout the day, but we’ll get to those another day.
