Over 100 Wedding Photos For The Big Day!

Your wedding will be a day that you will look back on with fond memories for the rest of your life! Our biggest regret from our own wedding is that we never got a photo of Jen and her Mom. Not. a. single. one! We could have easily fixed that if we had only had a personalized wedding photo checklist to give our wedding photographer!

One of the most important parts of wedding planning is to create a shot list to give to your photographer. This will give your wedding photographer a clear list of photographs that you would like to have. Obviously, you expect more than just these photos, but having a list of wedding photos to hand to your photographer will ensure that you don't lose a single precious moment.

Don't fall into the "just take pictures of everything" trap! Your wedding photographer will do their best to document the entire day, but by giving them a list of wedding shots that you expect, it clearly communicates to them what shots you expect to receive. It also gives YOU more confidence, knowing that these special elements of your big day will never be forgotten.

So here's our wedding photo list to give you some ideas. We've left plenty of room for you to include your own desired shots as well! Feel free to copy and paste from this post to add to your own personalized idea list, or click below to DOWNLOAD our wedding photo checklist!
