I recently had the pleasure of meeting the amazing photography team Kim + Phil Photography. They are the most adorable couple themselves and I’m just giddy over all their beautiful photos. I just love how their pictures “glow” and capture the joy of the wedding day so perfectly. I’ve asked them to help us with some tips on for great photographs on your wedding day. Check out all their wonderful advise.

1. Engagement Shoot
Engagement shoots are a great way to get comfortable with your photographer and the camera. Having worked with your photographer already, you’ll be firing on all cylinders when your wedding rolls around, and you won’t waste time getting acquainted.

2. Professional Makeup and Hair
You’re gorgeous already! But even the most beautiful person can benefit from professional makeup and hair. It will enhance your photos and let your photographer shoot from any angle, freeing them from worrying about retouching. Remember, Photoshop can only do so much.

3. Detail Shots
You spend months planning all the little details: the right linen color, the perfect table numbers, the most beautiful flowers.  Make sure to set aside time in your timeline before guests arrive to allow your photographer to capture these important and untouched details.

3. Wedding Planner or Coordinator
A planner is one of the best wedding investments you can make. Too often, sans coordinator, your photographer plays schedule-keeper, and that distracts their focus from you and your wedding. A planner removes those distractions from your vendors, letting them work smoothly and letting you enjoy your wedding, stress-free.

5. Relax
You hired a professional photographer for a reason. Our job is making you look even more amazing than you already are and capturing those small moments you didn’t have time to notice. Trust us. We know how to pose you and find the right light to make magic.  We love what we do and love creating heirlooms. So sit back, relax, and enjoy yourself!
