You spend months planning out the perfect wedding—that magical day that will mark your life for better or for worse. A crucial part in the organization is researching Milton and Burlington wedding venues and selecting the right one. But when it finally arrives, you’re so caught up in the whirlwind of emotion and festivities that much of your wedding day is a fleeting blur, from the cake to the music and the bouquet toss.
Photographs help the happy couple reminisce about the day they began their life together. Capture every moment and create memories that will live on forever. Consider these four tips to get the best wedding photos on your big day.
- Choose your style of photo. It is important to have an image in mind of how you would like your photos to appear. There are several different unique photography styles. You can choose natural on-the-fly type of shots or the traditional approach with the photographer directing the photos, or the artistic approach of using angles to create the right frame.
- Invest in the right photographer. Once you’ve nailed your vision, it’s time to find a photographer with the same eye for detail. Start your search early and browse numerous portfolios to get a sense of the quality and style of work. Look for thoughtful compositions and a variety of shots and angles. Most importantly, make sure you feel comfortable with your photographer of choice, as they will be shadowing your every move for the duration of the celebration.
- Make a shot list. Do not tie up your photographer with different combinations of family members. Instead, have them take large group photos in action. Not only will your grandparents, aunts, uncles and cousins’ cousins be included, but your photos will hold more meaning — and there’s nothing a photographer loves more than capturing real, magical moments. Also, remember that variety is what makes the best wedding albums. Make sure your photographer gets a healthy dose of candid shots, portraits and still images of décor items and scenery, for example.
- Pick the right venue. The backdrop for your photos will make the difference between a nice shot and a breathtaking memory. From urban landscapes to country pastures, there are many beautiful Milton and Burlington wedding venues that are ideally suited for the occasion. Crosswinds Golf & Country Club is one of Burlington’s favoured destinations for elegant ceremonies with rustic flare. Lush woodlands, rolling green hills, charming ponds, cedar bridges and gazebos, provide a magnificent and inspiring background to make your fairy tale wedding a dream come true.
