Wedding Planner

Guide to a full days Wedding Photography

I’ve compiled a wedding photography checklist with a few tips to help your Big Day run smoothly. As shooting a wedding always comes with a certain amount of pressure.

Hiring Paweddings will ensure that you’ll both get the polished photographs that you require from your wedding. To help me get the styling and details you desire, please feel free to ask questions & put your own ideas forward, so together we can construct the perfect package that suits you.

Between traditional wedding photographs and candid moments, there are some shots you won’t want us to miss. Make a point to sit down with us and discuss and highlight which of these shots mean the most to you, so we don’t miss out on any special moments.

So please view our step-by-step wedding photography checklist below, you can feel confident in trusting that Paweddings won’t miss out on preserving all the details..

Remember our wedding planner is a guide, as each wedding is different so not all suggestions apply.

Why a Pre-Wedding Shoot Can Be So Important!

We understand not everyone can fit in a pre-wedding (engagement) shoot either due to work commitments, children, holidays, etc even poor weather can cause issues with dates, days & times.

So below I have listed the reasons why it can be beneficial to those couples looking to book a session.

  1. To feel comfortable with the photographer.
  2. To gain confidence in front of the camera
  3. A chance to have fun, be romantic, loving.
  4. Have your images framed for guest signings.
