There are lots of resources out there and I know it can get a little overwhelming, especially in the planning stages. So, I've come to help take a little bit of the stress off your shoulders, Brides.
Every wedding is unique and with that, each event is different in terms of timeline, number of guests, and what gets photographed and what doesn't. A seasoned photographer will have a mental checklist of all the details they should be capturing through out the day and will aim to get them all. Sometimes, brides have very specific photographs in mind and most often than not, forget to communicate that with their photographers. Resulting in missed shots that the bride would have loved.
WHY IS IT IMPORTANT?
For example, at my last wedding, if the bride hadn't told me about her something blue, I would have missed it completely - even though I carried those shoes throughout the whole suite for 30 minutes and never noticed! I'm glad she said something and I was able to get that shot. From now on though, I will be looking at the souls of all future brides' shoes just in case ;).
