Ah, details photos. I have this love/hate relationship with detail photos. On the one hand, I totally understand wanting to memorialize all of the precious items you have so painstakingly chosen for your special day. And on the other hand, I often wonder if couples look through their detail photos in 10, 15 years from now, do they mean something to them?
If your shoes were made by your grandma (like McKhenzie’s below) or your ring is from your mom, I say heck yeah! Let the photographs commence. Or even if you’re just like, “Leah, idgaf, I paid good money for this gorgeous wedding dress, take some pictures of it.” I say, right away queen!!! But if you’re ambivalent about these photos or know they won’t be cherished and looked at later on down the road, maybe let’s use this time to photograph the people that matter to you. Because I’m gonna be honest, details take time. Nothing pains me more than being bent over an invitation suite and hearing laughter or seeing your mom see you for the first time out of the corner of my eye. Which brings me to…
2. So we’re doin details, let’s do it!! Just make sure you allot the proper time.
Detail photos take. time. Listen, I’ve got big hands. Trying to make three tiny little rings balance on each other can take a while. So make sure we have enough time and that it’s a relatively “boring” portion of the day. Aka you’re sitting in the makeup chair and your bridesmaids are running around ironing their dresses.
3. How big of a priority are detail photos?
This is something I ask in my questionnaire. It’s broken into 3 sections
(make sure to keep everything together in one box so I can start photographing right away!)
For the gals
For the guys
And that’s a wrap on detail photos! Regardless of what you decide, I will make sure to photograph it with all the care and detail (hehe) you deserve!
