Wedding Photos

No doubt there are many wedding moments you won’t want to miss. The best way to ensure your photographer captures the right moments for all posterity is to provide a suggested shot list. Of course, the style and number of these images will all depend on the photographer you’ve chosen and how long you’ve hired that pro for, but a shot list of photos you’d love to have is a great way to cover your bases. Since you should count on at least five minutes per shot, it’s unrealistic to expect all the photos below, but pick and choose those shots that mean most to you.
