3 Tips for Avoiding Hours of Picture-taking on Your Wedding Day

Having pictures of you, your spouse, and your close friends and family on your wedding day is super important. These pictures will capture these memories forever, and you will likely treasure them and hang them in your home for the rest of your life. However, the last thing that most couples want to do is spend hours and hours on their wedding day getting pictures taken.

There are certain things that you can do to get all of the pictures that you want, without having to spend hours on your wedding day taking them. This article will discuss 3 of these tips. 

Take Your Bridals and Groomals Before Your Wedding Day 

If you and your fiancé have your wedding dress and tuxedo fitted before your wedding day, then you should definitely have your bridals taken a few days or weeks before your actual wedding.

You can get completely done up to look exactly how you will on your wedding day, and you can take pictures in a beautiful location. You can spend as much time as you would like taking these pictures, and you won't be in a hurry to get away, like you will on your wedding day. You will of course still want to take a few more pictures on your wedding day, but this will take a shorter amount of time. 

Take Pictures with Your Bridesmaids & Groomsmen the Morning of Your Wedding

Since you, your fiancé, yours groomsmen, and your bridesmaids will all be there the morning of your wedding, it is smart to get all of your pictures taken with them at this time. Simply plan to have your wedding party come early that morning to get ready with you, making it easy for you to gather and get all of your pictures taken.

The light will be good for your photographer in the morning, and you will be able to get some amazing pictures with all of your amazing bridesmaids and groomsmen. 

Plan Out What Photos You Want Beforehand

Since you don't want to spend a great deal of time simply trying to figure out where people should stand for pictures and what pictures you want, you should plan all of this out beforehand with your photographer. You can sit down with them, and discuss about how many people will be in the different photos, any particular photographs that you would really like taken, etc.

Your wedding photographer can then have all of this planned out, so it will be easier for them to direct people where to go in photos, and get them taken in a more timely manner. They will have ideas already for how they will direct people in the photos, but getting your input will help them manage their time better and get the shots you really want.
