Getting the Pictures You Want

The key to getting the wedding pictures that you want is asking for them. Give your photographer a list of shots that you want, and he or she can work from that. If you do the work head of time, then you won't have to worry about your photographer missing any precious moments on your wedding day.

Below we have compiled a huge list of possible pictures for your wedding day. Print it off and place a check mark next to those pictures that you would like taken or even highlight the shots that are most important to you and your fiancé.
