Must-Have Photos for Greenwich Weddings

Since you've gotten engaged (and let's be honest, likely before), you have probably been swooning over photos of Greenwich weddings. You have sought inspiration for centerpieces, engagement shoots, "I do" shots, wedding party poses, the sparkler exit... You name it, and you've poured over it online.

As all the details come together and you get closer to your Greenwich wedding, you will want to start thinking about what details you want captured for posterity. When interviewing different Greenwich wedding photographers to capture your day, you will assess key components such as style, body of work, budget, and even personality type. One topic you'll cover is your "must-have" shot list. Of course your photographer knows to capture the basics - the ceremony, the kiss, the grand entrance, the getaway - but every bride has her own unique list of wedding photos she would absolutely be heartbroken to not have captured. You may be most-excited about the getting ready images with your best gals, or perhaps some sentimental details - an heirloom piece of jewelry, your mother's veil, or the childhood friend you haven't seen in years who made it for the big day. Whatever they are, these moments comprise your "must-have" shots, and we're here to help you figure out which ones are yours. Once you have figured it out, make sure you clue your Greenwich wedding photographers in!

The Bridal Details

The dress, the bouquet, bridesmaid details, you will want to capture them all! These fun, feminine photos set the tone of a wedding album, and are fun to look at with friends and family as the years pass on.

The Preparations

These are some of the best photos from the day! They range from sweet and fun to simply gorgeous as a bride prepares to marry the person of her dreams. Usually surrounded by friends and family, these light moments end up being packed with raw emotion and excitement, bringing back those same sentiments years later.

Also, don't forget the men! They might not have as much primping to do, but it's fun to see the groom get ready for the big day, too.

The Moment You Say, "I Do"

Obvious? Sure, but the day is all about this moment. And it is important to make sure you have an excellent, clear photo to remember it by. Our tip to get the very best "I do" kiss shot? Make it a Hollywood-style kiss! That means hold the kiss for at least three seconds so your Greenwich wedding photographers can snap a few great images.

The Details

You spent all that time choosing centerpieces, picking arrangements, adding little details that represent the two of you as a couple. Greenwich weddings go by so quickly, but you will be glad to have a record of how it really all did come together... even though sometimes during the planning process you thought it never would!


Those pictures of people, who never knew the photographer was watching, frozen in time laughing, wiping a tear, and enjoying the day with you. These are the family and friends who have supported you since you can remember, and will be there for you as begin a married life together.

The Epic Romantic Shot

Every marriage should have one of these! It might feel a little silly at the time, but you will be so happy you have this image down the line. This is the one you will find yourself gazing at over and over again after all your photos have been delivered.

Also, feel free to ask Greenwich wedding photographers for some suggestions of what he or she has done in the past that works well. Remember, they are the professionals and are an excellent resource for you!
