Maquette A Berkeley Wedding Venue Picture by Toronto Wedding Photographer Avangard Photography

1. Make a list of all the shots that you would like to get on your wedding day and give it to your wedding photographer. There is nothing worst than realizing you didn’t get the picture with favorite uncle or you missed some must-have shots. A good collection of wedding photos captures the day you spent with everyone you love.

2. Make a list of all the people that you want to included in the group shots. Start with largest groups and work your way down to smaller groups.

3. Designate one person as the group pictures coordinator – someone who is familiar with your family and friends but is not in your wedding party. Make that person in charge of the list. You will save time and make the formal shots more organized.

4. So much can go wrong on your wedding day – so preparation is the key. You should think ahead about photography locations in case of bad weather. Have a backup venue in case of rain. We recommend looking for a hotels with beautiful lobbies and halls.

5. Plan pictures that are completely you. You may be a fun-loving couple, so a picture of the two of you standing side by side isn’t something that reflects your relationship. Him holding you from behind, with his chin on your shoulder, that looks more like you and the way you appear in real life. So plan your photos with that in mind.

6. Share the joy of your wedding photos by making separate photo albums for your parents and the groom’s parents. You can order small 8×8 20 pages photo albums for $75 each. They come with glossy photo cover and semi-gloss pages.

7. Show your complete wedding day with an online picture gallery. We can design a slide-show gallery for you with the best 300 pictures from your wedding day, with background music and professional transitions. You can send the link, which can be password-protected, to your friends and family and show them your wedding pictures more quickly than if you waited for the printed proofs. Our standard wedding online gallery costs just $50 and can be added as an option to any package.
