After all the planning — and money — you’ve put into your wedding, you won’t want your videographer or photographer to miss any important moments. That’s why we’ve put together a printable list of photo opps for you. It will help you relay to your wedding videographer and photographer exactly which shots are important to you.
Some of the shots on the list are naturals for professional wedding videographers and photographers, but if you are using someone who isn’t a pro the list will be critical. Of course the downside is a pro will be able to get these shots, plus extra special unscripted moments. A hobbyist will have to spend time checking off the list, but that’s better than them missing the kiss or a similar must-have bride and groom shots, because they didn’t think of getting it on film.
So how can the list be helpful to a wedding pro? You will be able to go through it and point out which moments are extra important to you and which images you’d just as soon skip. There’s no point in wasting time on such a busy day. Plus, this will free up your videographer for more candid moments.
You will also be able to add things to the shot list that your videographer or photographer might not be aware will be happening. This is especially handy if you are planning to surprise your guests with moments that won’t appear on the wedding program. The list will also give you an idea of how weddings normally proceed and you’ll be able to point out where your’s might be following a different timeline.
Once you look over the list, you might find there are some parts of the wedding where you didn’t think to book your videographer or photographer. The most common instance is when the bride and groom are getting ready. After looking through the list, you might realize there are many special moments that you’ll want captured on video. It’s not like group shots, where you can go for another take.
