The 6 Must-Have Wedding Photography Moments for Your Magical Day (Plus 2 Bonus Shots)

From the moment you first dreamed of your perfect wedding day, we know that it has held a special place in your heart. We believe that your wedding is one of the most important days of your life - a celebration of love and commitment that deserves to be captured with utmost perfection.

That's why quality photography should be at the top of your priorities when planning for this magical occasion. These photos will serve as timeless reminders of the beauty and joy that surrounded you on your special day, and will be cherished by generations to come.

No two love stories are alike - whether you’ve known each other since childhood or you met on a dating app, your journey is uniquely yours. We like to immortalize your Wedding by capturing your love in six special moments (plus a bonus!) - capturing every smile, tear, and tender moment along the way. Here’s an insider look into these wedding photography moments, from candid shots to posed photographs, so that you know what to expect of your luxury wedding photographer when the big day comes.

The Getting Ready

Typically, the bride and groom will prepare for the wedding separately, accompanied by their family members, bridesmaids and groomsmen. This "Getting Ready" moment is a very special time filled with love and anticipation, as everyone eagerly awaits the first glimpse of the beautiful bride in her stunning wedding dress. It's an emotional experience that brings loved ones together to help with everything from hair and makeup to ensuring every detail of the dress, veil or suit is perfect. As they work together, they share stories, laughter and confide in each other to ease any pre-wedding jitters.

The wedding photographer arrives early at your dressing location to capture these intimate moments of your heartwarming getting-ready process. The photographer captures stunning and artistic shots of you in your gorgeous dress, showcasing every intricate detail like the bouquet and veil. Not only that, but everyone in attendance can also have their picture taken, from the bridesmaids in their elegant robes to the groomsmen in their dashing suits.

The ‘First Look’

The ‘First Look’ is an incredibly special moment that takes place before the ceremony when the bride and groom see each other for the first time, dressed in all their wedding day glory. This intimate moment is one of the most beautiful and romantic moments you'll ever experience. Your heart will flutter with excitement as you lay eyes on the person you're about to commit your life to and we’ll make sure to capture these precious memories through beautiful photography.

The Ceremony

Now this one may seem a little obvious, but as the wedding ceremony is the heart and soul of your big day, it would be silly not to take any photos of this unforgettable moment. From the signature photos at the altar to the candid shots of the bridesmaids, groomsmen, mother and father of the bride and groom - we'll snap everything! With our unique photography concept ‘The Art of Emotion’, we’ll capture every single emotion that fills your heart on this unforgettable day - be it smiles, tears or laughter.

The Reception

This is the fun part! After all the formalities of the ceremony are over, it's time to let your hair down and celebrate this beautiful occasion in style - it’s time for speeches, food, and of course the partyyy. This part’s all about the fun shots for you and your guests - dancing, singing, drunken laughter and of course that all-important first dance between you and your partner, as well as the emotional father-daughter dance. The vibe of these pictures is relaxed, with natural laughter and smiles that fill the room on this special night. It’s also a good chance for the photographer to get some more shots of your gorgeous venue so that you can remember every aspect of this magical evening forever.

Bonus #1: ‘Trash The Dress’

We know what you're thinking, “You’re asking me to ruin my wedding dress I just spent hundreds on?”

Well, sort of. In this unique wedding photography moment, your dress will get wet, and perhaps sandy… but you don’t technically have to trash your dress.

If you’re new to this concept it may sound a little crazy, but trust us when we say it is all about capturing the wildest, most dynamic shots of your special day, in an unusual landscape and a unique way that truly makes you stand out from your friends’ weddings.

Think photos laying on a stunning beach with waves crashing behind you, or floating in a serene cenote surrounded by lush greenery and crystal-clear water… (are you convinced yet??) These are the kind of shots that will take your breath away and leave you with unforgettable memories to cherish for a lifetime. And don't worry - these shots won't actually ruin your dress! A quick dry-clean and it'll be as good as new.

If the idea of trashing your actual wedding dress still doesn't sit well with you, no problem! Seeing as these shots will take place after the wedding day itself - because ain’t nobody got time to be trashing their dress whilst trying to get round everyone at the reception to say hello and thank you for coming - you can get your hands on another dress for this shoot so that your precious gown remains unscathed.

The Trash the Dress photoshoot is truly a once-in-a-lifetime moment to look back on the wedding and reflect on your thoughts and feelings as a newly married couple. And if you’ve got any post-wedding, blues it’s also a great chance to get that final sense of wedding bliss before returning to everyday life.

So, are you ready to take the plunge? We promise that these pictures speak for themselves - just take a look at our portfolio and prepare to be amazed!

Bonus #2: Drone

Looking for something a bit more high-tech and modern to capture your special day in a way never seen before? Look no further than drone technology. With our FPV drone (an innovative piece of drone technology that has a greater range, speed and more complex capabilities than the standard drone) you can achieve stunning birds eye-view videography of your wedding celebrations. Think sky-high shots of you in your wedding dress on the balcony, overhead views of you and your partner walking down the aisle, and gorgeous group shots of you and your bridal party on the stunning sandy beaches of Mexico. Drone content really will take your wedding photography and videography to the next level, allowing you to reminisce on your big day from every angle.

And did you know we also offer wedding videos and social media stories for weddings? It’s the perfect option to share all your wedding memories in high-quality online with any friends, colleagues and wider family who couldn’t make it to the ceremony.
