10 Must-Take Photo Ops For Your Wedding Day

You’ve picked your wedding photographer and now it’s your wedding day – but what are the absolutely crucial photos you’re going to regret not seeing in your wedding album? Here are 10 must-have shots that every photographer should aim to capture on your big day:

1. The Family Ensemble

Gather all close family members, and yes, that includes your extended family, too! It’s a wonderful opportunity for a grand photo with everyone – and even better for making custom magnets for the family later.

5. Golden Hour Glow

Golden hour is a photographer’s dream, and for good reason. Make sure to schedule time during your own wedding to take advantage of the glowy sunset and capture the dreamiest of wedding photos.

Before the guests dive in, snag those shots of your meticulously chosen decor. From the lush floral centerpieces to the elegant place cards, make sure your photographer captures all of the thoughtful details at your ceremony site and reception space.
