The Ultimate Wedding Photographer Shot List

Your wedding day is almost here and there are certain shots you definitely want to look back on. Here is a list of suggested shots you can provide to your photographer. I would suggest printing this list and circling the ones that must have and cross out the ones you really don't want pictures of. Feel free to add to this list as you choose, this is just a template. Lastly, I would suggest that you allow your photographer to use their creative freedom and catch candid shots. Candid shots are always fun to look back on. So, live in the moment, don't look for the camera and enjoy the day!

  • I suggest choosing a location that is as close to the reception site as possible. Preferably, somewhere within a 15-20 mile radius between the ceremony and the reception site. The last thing you want is to get stuck in traffic or delayed in any way. This is also the perfect time to enjoy being a married couple. Take this time to be in love and embrace the beginning of your union.
