To help you achieve the most authentic and candid wedding day photos, I've compiled my top 5 tips that I share with all my clients. So, let's dive in and make your wedding day memories truly unforgettable!
Tip 1: Embrace Movement
Movement adds a touch of magic to your wedding day photos. Instead of static poses, I encourage you and your partner to keep the energy flowing throughout the day. Whether it's a gentle sway, a playful twirl, or a spontaneous dance, allow yourselves to be in the moment and let your love guide your movements. These subtle gestures will infuse your photos with a sense of spontaneity and capture the joy and excitement of your wedding day.
Tip 2: Keep Your Gaze on Each Other
While there will be moments when you'll look directly at the camera, the most captivating photos often come from genuine interactions between you and your partner. Instead of focusing solely on the lens, keep your gaze locked on each other. Laugh, whisper sweet words, steal kisses, and let the love between you shine through. These intimate moments create a connection that translates into beautiful, candid photographs that authentically reflect your love story.
Tip 3: Stay Present and Enjoy the Moment
Your wedding day will pass by in a whirlwind of emotions, and it's essential to stay present and savor every precious moment.

Physical touch is a powerful way to express love and affection. Throughout your wedding day, embrace opportunities for tender moments and physical connections with your partner. Whether it's a gentle hand-hold, a loving embrace, or a playful touch, these gestures not only add depth and emotion to your photos but also create a sense of comfort and intimacy. Don't be afraid to let your love shine through your physical connections and let me capture those cherished moments.
