8 ways an Awesome Wedding Photgrapher will make your day memorable

One of the most important parts of your wedding day is having an Awesome Wedding Photographer so you can look back at your images and reminisce. Sometimes during the hustle and bustle of the busy day, some small but priceless memories will be forgotten, but that is where we come in! At RIK Photography and Bluff Mountain Inn, we strive to create photos of every detail of your special day that you and your family will remember for lifetimes to come!

So what do the photographers do to capture all of those details that you will fall back in love with again and again? These photos from a recent top wedding will give us examples of how your wedding photographer will make your day more memorable.

1. Getting ready shots and preparations

It feels awesome to be pampered! Getting your hair and makeup done and your bridesmaids bending over backwards to make sure your dress is perfectly tied are perfect examples. We can’t forget how great of a job they did!

2. Detail Shots

Photos last a lot longer than live flowers, so we get creative with our photos to show their fresh beauty. And how about a cool shot of the wedding dress in a tree?

  1. Portraits of the Bride and her Bridesmaids

We love capturing the beauty of our brides! There is a vibe of flawlessness that we love to see and work with. Not to mention getting those candid shots of the bride and her girls laughing it up during their portrait session!

4. Portraits of the Groom and Groomsmen

There is just something striking about a groom and his guys styling in their tuxes. But don’t let the tuxes fool you! Sometimes it brings out the most colorful part of their personalities.

  1. Family and Friends

Of course we can’t forget the ones who have showed their love and support for the bride and groom! We always make sure to get special photos of those important family members and friends.

  1. The Ceremony

While the ceremony is the most important part of the day, it can also be the quickest. We make sure to grab shots of every little detail during this time; the look on the groom’s face as his bride walks down the aisle, the close shot of the exchanging of rings, photos of the sand being poured into sentimental containers, and most importantly, the kiss!

  1. Bride and Groom Portraits

Now that the bride and groom have said, “I do,” it’s time to make it even more official with photos! To start, we bring in the bridal party with the couple and do some fun shots that get everyone smiling and ready to JUMP! Once we are finished with the bridal party, we take the bride and groom around for a private session and let them enjoy their time together while we photograph the love that so brightly shows.

  1. The Reception

Now it’s time to celebrate!! You better believe we will get pictures of that beautiful cake before the bride and groom smash it into each other’s faces (lovingly, of course). The décor is an ambiance and something special that a lot of time and thought went into on the couple’s part. We want to make sure that their designs are preserved through detailed photographs. Not to mention, the reception holds significance when the bride dances with her father, and the groom with his mother.

Receptions are where we continue to let our creativity fly. How cool do you want to look while doing the Cha-Cha Slide? An awesome wedding photographer can add a twist to that! You might even come across a photo of Grandma doing the Chicken Dance…
