Trust us—you’ll want to capture all of these moments.
by Amanda Casertano

Everything you’ve heard is true: Your wedding day comes and goes so quickly. That’s why preparation is key. Once you nail down your photographer (do this 9-11 months in advance!),  it’s time to start thinking about your shot list. While your photographer will guide you on the moments they plan on capturing, it’s important to know exactly what you want too. After all, you’ll want to keep these memories intact with the perfect photo album. Get ready for your close up by taking a look at these pretty picture ideas you might want to include.
