12. Priceless “I Do” Moment or First Kiss 

The “aww” moment of every wedding is the first official public lip-locking experience, an expression of love, passion and happiness with the words “I do” as a reaffirmation of the status of your relationship, dedication to commitment and pure love in it’s finest form.

13. The Cake

We’re going to spoil you and put the 3 yummy cake moments in one – a photo of the beautiful cake itself, cutting of the cake together and feeding each other.

Usually the statement center-piece of your wedding decor, a cake can also be metaphoric as it represents the couple’s union. The cake topper is usually the most popular way to customize it – you and your partner’s initials, a mini-couple, or for the cake itself, adding the logo to the fondant is a popular choice to make your cake more “you”.

The cutting of the cake is a beautiful “all eyes on us” moment, but also makes a stunning photo that shows off the reception decor, including the cake.

The final cake moment is the feeding of the cake to each other, as one of the first acts as man and wife. It’s a symbol of affection – and sometimes the bride or groom kneels while serving the other, as a sign of devotion, sealing it with a kiss after taking a bite.

14. The First Dance

The major aww moment between the bride and the groom that everyone dies for. The bride and groom can get to feel like it’s just the two of them in the room with their favourite song playing, while the decorator adds some flair for a stunning photo – like fireworks, lighting and fog for that WOW factor.

15. The Bride and her Father

A lot changes after the “I do”, much more than what can be comprehended in the first few hours, a shot of daddy and his little girl is priceless. There are many opportunities for this at a white wedding with walking down the aisle, the father-daughter dance, traditional portraits and of course, random moments.

As a married woman, the dominant male in your life is now your husband and most memories will be spent with him by your side the rest of your life, so savor the undeniable emotional dance or photos with your pops when you can.

16. Groom and His Groomsmen

Men are usually not fussy, very simple! But to showcase the fine wine at your wedding and current bachelors, it’s a nice photo album addition. Also if you are a bride or groom with a lot of brothers it’s the easiest way to get all your favourite boys in one shot.

17. Candid Moments

The “I just could not help myself” moments happen in every wedding. Sometimes it’s a joke between the couple or big daddy busting a move we didn’t know he had, a bridesmaid’s craziness during the fight for the bouquet, adorable display of cuteness from the little bride and groom or a proposal, a surprise guest or gift, shedding a tear – the long list has no end, so do not shy away from just letting loose and enjoying your day, these moments can happen at any time.

18. The Rings

What’s the one thing from the wedding day you’ll you be wearing for the rest of your life? The ring!

A shot of your wedding rings is symbolic to the event. Even though some couples renew their vows with new rings or make upgrades after a few years, the first rings will always have a special place in your hearts – now, as every girl hears when she gets engaged, let us see your #BNBLING (ring)!

19. The Grand Entrance

Most couples dance into their reception with their favourite song playing. But you can make your entrance a statement in so many ways. A choreographed dance, a dance battle, or forget the dance altogether and arrive in a car, or even a bubble!

20. The Send-Off

In the wise words of Jay-Z, “grand opening, grand closing”. We have to say “bye” in style, it would not be a wedding without a grand opening and exit – you just have to cherish it!

Plus, you know what this means … HONEYMOON LOADING! And possibly baby loading in 9 months 😉

Instead of wishing “I really should have had photos of …” make a priority list and share it with your wedding planner/coordinator before the big day.

Happy Snapping, and of course Happy Married Life! 🙂
