Detail Wedding Photos

The morning of your wedding is going to be a crazy one, so let's make sure you're all set with your detail wedding photos checklist!

You'll have nerves and excitement running through your veins. Your phone will be ringing non stop with calls and texts from friends wishing you well as you get ready to walk down that aisle. Having a checklist of everything you need for your detail wedding photos is going to be super helpful. Plus, if you're like me, checking things off my list helps my nerves big time!

As your wedding photographer, I'm going to start making some photo magic as soon as I arrive to your bridal suite, so it's best to have your detail items set aside and ready to go. This way you don't have to take time away from your bridal hair and makeup, or mimosas with your girls! Make sure your MOH knows where your items are stashed, too.

Why Detail Wedding Photos?

When you're looking back on your wedding photos, your detail wedding photos are some of the first that you'll see. It sets the whole mood, the vibe, the scene for your wedding day journey. Even before you walked down the aisle, you sent out your Save the Dates and Invitations to your loved ones to come celebrate with you. Relive that moment!

Detail wedding photos are a great space to honor those that aren't able to be with you on your wedding day. From that old locket your grandpa gave you, to the handkerchief your mom carried down the aisle on her big day. Detail photos tie together generations and memories in a beautiful and unique way.

So what exactly do you need? Let me tell ya! Keep reading to see what items you need to make your detail photos pop.

Loose Flowers

Ask your florist in advance to bring some loose flowers and greens with the bouquet delivery. Just a little extra something for your flat lay photos that will really elevate them! Plus, your florist will love to have a little spotlight in your big day.

Speaking of bouquet deliveries, have your florist deliver the flowers about a half hour before I'm set to arrive. That way you can place them with the rest of your detail items and I'll be ready to get to work!

Styling Items

This is where the uniqueness of YOU shines through! Some things you can include are ribbons that go with your wedding theme and colors, heirloom items, papers, and fabrics. These help to keep everything consistent with your theme and another area where your personality can shine!

Your Full Invite Suite

Be sure to include the envelopes, with your invitation suite, and feel free to include your save the date! These are the centerpiece to your flat lay and you have to have them! Your invitation suite includes your save the date, Invitation and RSVP card.
