As you begin to compile your shot list with your Toronto wedding photographer, consider adding some classic ones. Innovative and creative shots are great, but the classic ones have stuck around all this time for a reason. Here some of the classic wedding shots we recommend you include!
The ring is by far the most symbolic element of the wedding. The circular shape represents never-ending commitment the couple is making to each other. Most people invest money and time into picking the perfect engagement ring and wedding bands. Make sure you include some beautiful close-up shots of the rings before they land on those fingers forever!
A wedding dress is one of the most important things for brides. Every bride wants to look beautiful on their wedding day, which is why they invest so much time and money into finding the perfect dress. Make sure you get multiple shots of the dress. Silhouette shots of the dress hanging, putting the dress on, full-length shots, and close-ups of key elements on it are all great!
The First Look
The first time a groom sees his bride in her wedding dress is magical. This moment is one our wedding photographers favorites to capture because it’s so full of emotion. Whether it happens when the bride walks down the aisle, or in an intimate First Look beforehand, make sure you capture this moment.
The First Kiss
Most couples don’t have their first ever kiss on their wedding day. But when the officiate says, “you can now kiss the bride” its one of the most memorable moments of the day. This is the first romantic moment between the newly married couple and you’ll definitely want to have a record of it for years to come.
The Wedding Party
A wedding party can be as small as a couple of people or as large as a football team. No matter what size wedding party you have, be sure to get tons of shots of them. Your bridesmaids and groomsmen have invested time and energy into getting you here at this moment. Get group shots, stand-alone ones, and a bunch of different combinations.
The Décor and Venue
Capturing the people and key moments is great, but most of the wedding planning goes into the venue and decorations. Ask your Toronto wedding photographer to capture the venue fully decorated, the place settings, the centerpieces, or any other big element that you love. These shots are some of the best to look back on later because couples often forget about them! Don’t forget about the cake as well!
