5 Tips for Perfect Wedding Photos

23 (NewsUSA) – Your wedding is a once-in-a-lifetime occasion — something to be celebrated and cherished. Planning it, on the other hand, can feel as if you’re preparing for war — between ensuring that Uncle Sal isn’t sitting next to his brother, who owes him money, to budgeting for everything you want and need. The one thing you don’t want to skimp on is the memories.

Which is why choosing your photographer is one of the biggest decisions you will make. To help ensure that you get the most romantic photos of your fairytale day, Professional Photographers of America, a 29,000-plus-member association, offers these suggestions:

* Express yourself. What kind of photos do you like? Do they tend toward the journalistic or is your style more whimsical, classical, or romantic? Whatever your style, be clear with your photographer so that he or she can capture your personality.

* Say yes to the dress. It starts and ends with this iconic garment. What will make you feel like the bride you’ve always dreamed of being? Is it a flowing sundress, a formal gown complete with train and veil? Or maybe your idea is more modern and it’s a strapless dress, in a color other than white. Whatever it is, dare to wear your dream dress.

* Buy the shoes?or not. Carrie Bradshaw knows shoes. And you should too. Will you walk down the aisle in stilettos or kitten heels? Maybe cowboy boots are more your style? Can’t decide? Then leave the shoes at home, and feel free to walk barefoot.

* Rejoice in style. Your wedding day isn’t just a ceremony, it’s a celebration that brings all your family and friends together (for better or worse), and pictures of this memorable party are a great way to inject your own sense of style. Be it a backyard BBQ, a tail gate at your favorite stadium, or a formal dinner, pictures of this event are a must-have.

* Decide on your ride. Some people prefer to be whisked away by horse and carriage as if they were Cinderella herself. Others prefer luxury limos and cars as their modern equivalent. For the unique free-spirits of the world, maybe a motorcycle is more your thing. Either way, a great photo opp awaits as you leave your wedding.

Share the Love

You can spend weeks, months, even years planning your wedding day. Whether it’s the event of the year or an intimate elopement, there’s no doubt that you spent a lot of time and energy into making the day everything you dreamt that it would be down to the tiniest perfectly executed detail. And then POOF! It’s over in a blink of an eye. But with the help of the photographers – both professional and unprofessional – you can relive every minute of the day and share those precious memories not only with your family and friends, but you can now also share the love of your wedding with all the newly engaged who are just sitting down and starting to plan their special day. Well Wed recently launched their Maine and New Hampshire magazine which is chock full of real weddings submitted by newlyweds. From vintage chic or winter wonderland, Well Wed is the perfect place to launch planning your ME/NH wedding. And wouldn’t you, as the glowing newlywed who just experienced the joy of getting married,  love knowing that all of the hard work you put into your wedding day inspired another new bride and groom?

Here are the details:

Reach out to one of the vendors who advertises in Well Wed magazine (Sperry Tents Seacoast is one of them!) and they can outline what they need and by when. There is a questionnaire that needs to be completed to make sure all of the right vendors are credited and that your wedding day story is accurately captured and shared with Well Wed readers. The vendor will then confirm that it is ok with the photographer to submit a few high res images that capture the “cohesive look or theme, eye-catching details and inspired seasonal elements,” of your wedding day. And that’s it! Then you get to wait until that adorable magazine shows up on your doorstep and then you get to relive your wedding day along with the hundreds of other people who turn to Well Wed for wedding advice.

Picture Perfect Church Landing

Spring, Summer, Fall… each New England season brings its own unique sights, sounds and colors. Being able to see the splendor of a venue at the peak of each season is such a treat, especially the Inns at Mill Falls in Meredith, NH which is right on the picture perfect banks of the beautiful Lake Winnepesauke. Guests are treated to a stunning lake view surrounded by trees as they witness the union of their friends and family under a 46×65 Sperry Tent. Church Landing hosts events under a Sperry almost every weekend from May through October and we were lucky enough to nab these images from the amazing Bharat Parmar of Bharat Parmar Photography. He truly captures the unique New England charm that Church Landing has to offer and all the fun and love that is celebrated under the big top!
