Detail photos of your wedding are still photos of your invitations, jewelry, gown, heirlooms, your cake, tablescapes, and reception area. The details are so important on your wedding day as it reflects who you are as a couple and your style. Your wedding tells a story, and it is something you want to remember for years to come. The details tell your story alongside your wedding photos of each other. As a photographer, it is not only my job to capture your wedding, but it is my job to capture every detail that makes your wedding come together.
There are so many ways to elevate your details to make them stand out. When I say elevate, I don’t just mean to raise to a more important or impressive level; I also suggest elevating the details to fit your theme and make it more customized to your wedding.
Details are meaningful; most of them have a purpose; here are a few ways to elevate your details.
Create a guest book that can be displayed in your house and not put in a closet. Use a sign that has your last name on it or a globe that people can sign, something fun that represents you as a couple but can also be decorative.
Create custom-made invitations with your new monogram. Have an artist create a unique seal that you can use on your invitations and save the dates and signage. Use this seal throughout the whole wedding, have your designer create something that represents both of your personalities and that can fit with the theme or your wedding.
Did you know that in the early days, people chose their flowers based on their meaning? I know people do not do that as much nowadays, but if you look into this idea, I think your guests would love to hear the why behind your florals.
Use family heirlooms for your jewelry or some decor items such as your card box. Everyone loves to hear the story behind these items, who wore them or had them in their wedding, and the meaning behind them. Invite your guests to learn about these items with signage.
Create your wedding details based on your personalities, and remember they are more important than you might think! Let’s talk more about your wedding details
