As a wedding photographer, I’m obsessed with wedding day details! I have so much fun photographing these unique elements of a couple’s day that tell their story, from stationery flat-lays to the bride’s bouquet. But why do these details matter? And which should you incorporate into your special day? Keep reading for a photographer’s perspective on this small yet significant portion of your gallery!
Cohesive and Memorable Wedding Design
You and your partner have worked hard to identify a theme for your celebration that speaks to you, with colors and decor to match. Although some wedding day details are more noticeable than others, they all contribute to a cohesive design! Moreover, the details you choose make your special day even more meaningful. For example, a photo charm on your bouquet is a sweet way to honor a lost loved one and hold them close as you take this momentous life step. A custom dress hanger with your name and date is also a great way to personalize your detail shots!
The truth is that your wedding day will fly by once it finally arrives. As the years go by, it will be easy to forget all the details, large and small. When that happens, your detail shots will remind you of the effort you put into creating your dream day and anchor you in how you felt. They’ll always take you back to the best day of your life!
