There are only a handful of times in a person’s life that are worth really celebrating; birth, engagement, marriage and retirement. The biggest of those is undoubtedly marriage. It is that moment you commit your soul to another;s, you pledge yourselves to each other, you confess your eternal love in the most powerful and binding way possible.
As such, you will want to capture memories of your big day in the most gorgeous, and possibly unique, way possible. And here is how to do that.
Get A Fantastic Photographer
This is still the most obvious and important way to capture your wedding, so make sure you get a stunningly good photographer, someone you trust to do the best job possible. It could be that they did a wedding you went to and the pictures turned out simply gorgeous. It could be that you came across them online, and their portfolio just blew you both away. It could be that you have a photographer friend, one that knows you both, your personalities and quirks and will be able to capture those in a truly personal way. Whatever it is, trust them, because these are going to be the photos that hang on your wall at home and adorn the pages of your wedding album. It is also worth knowing what sort of photos you want, such as the bride and her mom. That should always be captured.
Hire A Hollywood Videographer
Okay, so maybe the Hollywood bit is a little unrealistic (unless you know someone), but that doesn’t mean you can’t get a great videographer. Someone that is going to be able to capture the emotion of the ceremony and the happiness of the reception and the vibrancy of the party. You want someone that is going to be able to create a story, a day in your life, the most important day in your life, and not miss any of the jokes, the smiles, the tears and the joy. There is something wonderful about watching that day back in years to come.
That Unique Angle
We’re sure this will become more of a thing, but why not get your brother or brother in law to get that one incredible snap – or few incredible snaps – that will stand out immensely. See what the best drones under 1000 are and get an aerial shot of everyone outside the church, or everyone dancing under the stars. If you know someone that is a total genius with Photoshop, then why not ask them to cast their magic over a photo, like your wedding party running away from a dinosaur. Just that little something special.
The Photo Booth
Weddings are all about love and emotion and perfect snapshots. There is no denying that. But they are also about celebrating, they are about happiness and having a great time in your name, and what better way is there to capture the silliness of your friends and family than to have a wonderfully stuffed dressing-up-box, maybe with a theme, and a photo booth to go wild in. It will prove to be an absolute winner.
