Intimate Weddings Photography Tips

Maybe you are looking for the perfect photographer for your wedding day, or maybe you have already found one. Either way, this wedding photography advice from brides who have been there could help you avoid some major (or minor) wedding photography disasters.

Wedding Photography Advice

I would take pictures in front of the house. I would take more pictures with my friends.

The only thing I would change is I would have taken a few more specific pictures.

The only thing that I wish I had done, but did not do was get a picture of my mom, my grandmother and me. That was supposed to happen before the wedding, but we ran out of time and after the wedding, I was so tired and hungry I chose not to do it. Big mistake.

There is only one thing I would change. I would make a list of the pictures I wanted the photographer to take. Because my in-laws are divorced and remarried, there are some combinations that are missing.

I would …have someone watch to make sure my little nephews didn’t grab all the disposable cameras and use up every roll on their parents’ stomachs!

Wedding Videography Advice

The camcorder didn’t work due to the high dew factor on the beach so (my parents) didn’t even get to see the ceremony on video … If I had to do it over again, I’d get a better camcorder.

I would have tried harder to save for a video. We didn’t quite have the money so we didn’t have a video. I wish now that we did.

I would have paid to have a videographer. It was left in a family member’s hands and we ended up with no video of the day! Very disappointing!

    Surveys consistently show that not having a wedding video is one of the biggest regrets brides suffer post-wedding.

    This is a once-in-a-life-time event that brings families together in a way that will NEVER happen again.

    Even it you can't afford a professional, ask SOMEONE (friend, family member) to videotape the event.
