There’s a lot happening on your wedding day. So much, in fact, that chances are high you’ll end up missing a moment or two. Luckily, your photographer is there to capture every precious memory!

Some couples provide their photographers with a “shot list,” which details all the precious moments they want to see in their wedding album. This can be a great way to ensure you get the photos that matter most to you. Just be sure you have these five shots on the list!

The Bride Getting Ready

The morning before a wedding is always a hectic one for the ladies involved. There’s hair and makeup to do, dresses and heels to get into, and more than a few happy tears to shed! A photo of this intimate moment between a bride and her girlfriends will be fondly cherished forever.

The Groom and His Boys

The other half of the bridal party may not have hair and makeup to do. However, they do spend plenty of time together in the hours before the ceremony. It’s always fun to see a groom and his buddies getting ready for the big day.

That First Look

Whether you opt for a first look before the ceremony or avoid eye contact until the aisle, the look on the couple’s faces when they see each other dolled up for the wedding is unforgettable. Make sure you save that moment for the album!

The Kiss

This is a quintessential wedding image: the couple’s first kiss as man and wife. Make sure your photographer captures the magical moment that your marriage was sealed (with a kiss)!

The Reception Tablescape

You probably spent hours agonizing over those centerpieces, so give them a chance to shine! A shot of your reception decor will remind you how beautiful your venue looked. (And how all that planning was worth it).
