We’ve all seen (and have taken!) the staged wedding photos of families, bridesmaids, groomsmen, flower girls and ring bears lined up perfectly. Are these essential? Yes. Are they boring? Yes.
While those photos are necessary, no doubt, we guarantee that the pictures you’ll drool over are those fleeting candid moments that only a camera can capture in a flash. The stolen glances, ear-to-ear grins, boundless belly laughs, nose nuzzles, eskimo kisses, cake fights and more.
Candids tell the emotions of the day — you’ll want to remember how you felt, how you looked at your new spouse and how teary you were during the toasts, and candids will capture just that.
Tip: Ask your photographer for a mix of posed and candid moments when you’re compiling your shot list. You don’t want any surprises when you get your pics back post-wedding.
