What would be the main shots during the ceremony?
For a photographer, every detail is super important and we can not forget about any details during your day. That is why when we met you during our coffee date, we always come up with a wedding shots list and ask you what are the main shots you would like or what do you want us to shot. Generally speaking, during the ceremony there is no surprise: we shot the wedding decoration, the set up, the guests or relatives, the entrance etc…

The truth is, when you shot at a wedding, you also have to keep in mind all the details that your bride and groom were hardly work on it: they have put so much effort on it.
Get there early: you might arrive about half hour before the ceremony starts. Always shot the guests and their smiles. Catch each moment, especially when the relatives or the parents of both sides are welcoming the people. These behind the scenes pictures are always appreciate by the bride and groom, since they can not see them until their entrance.
All the guests are now sitting down, the ceremony can start! Every entrance is sometimes different: depends on if your wedding is religious or not, at the church the entrance must have an order. But the main entrance should be: bridesmaids and groomsmen, groom and his mum, maid of honor and man of honor, and finally, bride and her father or both parents
