When you have a DIY bride, you know you will have plenty of detail photos to take. This was the case with one of my recent weddings. Lisa, the bride and my client, was meticulous about every detail for her wedding day.
The favors she put together for guests of the wedding were succulents that came from a larger succulent the groom had bought for her while on a weekend trip together. She has gorgeous handwriting and is known for writing fun stuff on chalkboards, so of course she wanted to do that for her own wedding reception.
As a photographer for this type of bride, it's especially important to capture the details. She spent time putting so much together and she will want to remember her hard work. So I made sure to take pictures of everything.
But, capturing detail photos is important for every wedding you shoot. Details are a part of every wedding story. At every wedding someone spent time picking out all the details that go into the day. Pay attention to which details are important to your bride and make sure that you are noticing these special details at the same time you are capturing the venue as a whole.
Here is a good sampling of what wedding details you should make sure to take pictures of when there is so much going on around you!
