Your wedding portraits are an important aspect of your wedding day to consider. Have you asked yourself “How long should we schedule for photos?” or “What’s the best time of day for lighting?”. Well we’ve got you covered! Here are 5 tips for you, sharing how to get your very best wedding portraits, and the things you should consider along the way. Because trust us, the gorgeous portraits of you as newlyweds (just the two of you!) are the ones you’re going to want to frame and hang on your wall.

When it comes to getting the best wedding portraits we have a couple of tips that work for us at Nicole Sarah Photography Studio! Firstly, we encourage couples to have an engagement session if possible. This allows you to get comfortable with your photographer and prepare for your big day. If a session isn’t in your plans then make sure to follow your photographer on Instagram or get to know them in person beforehand. This will make for a much more natural and relaxed experience! Secondly, we advise couples to put the worry on us. Don’t worry about how you look, posing or any of that. Sometimes couples can get lost in the worry of appearances and the result is a less-than-candid portrayal of your love. If you hire the right photography team you can rest assured you’re in great hands. Relax, be in the moment with your partner and relive your funniest and happiest memories together. The result will be wedding images that truly showcase your personalities and unique love story. Nicole Sarah Photography

one.

 Choose the Right Location(s)


Choose an area that has a few different location opportunities for portraits. That way, you’ll more easily get variety in the images. Here are some additional things to consider about the location(s) you choose: how far away is it from your venue(s)? How much time do you have scheduled for portraits? Does your location choice reflect your wedding style and showcase anything personal or meaningful to you?


two.

Consider Your Light


The time of day that you have scheduled your portraits is important to consider; Light plays a crucial role in how your wedding photos will look. Most photographers love capturing portraits in golden hour (the hour or so before sunset), whether that is the primary time you’ve allotted for portraits or maybe it’s for a few minutes after dinner where you sneak off with your boo and the photographer for some intimate shots! Try your best to stay away from taking your portraits midday, when the sun is overhead and casting strong shadows.


three.

Book Enough Time


Timing for your portraits can depend on your location choice(s), time of day, and a couple of other factors. We recommend scheduling in at least an hour (once at the location) to get photos of you and your bridal party, as well as the more intimate portraits of you and your new husband or wife. You’ll definitely need more time if you’re wanting to include fun props or travel to a location farther away. Some couples opt for a “day-after” session, where they get all done up again the next day (or following week – whatever suits your fancy) and travel to a dream location farther away, and spend a longer time with your portraits (without the stress of your wedding day).


four.

Trust Your Photographer


Communication and trust with your photographer is crucial to beautiful portraits, and an overall successful wedding day. Share your timeline with your photographer so you’re both on the same page, and ask them for input and advice when choosing your portrait location(s) and scheduling your day. In fact, they may have some great suggestions or ideas you might not have even thought about!


five.

Relax and Enjoy


Relax and enjoy some quality time with you and your boo! Don’t worry about your wedding reception or your guests, just focus on this special moment as a newlywed! Trust us, these are the moments you’re going to frame and hang up on your wall! Try your best to just be in the moment and enjoy this time alone (because you might not get much more of it the rest of the day!).
