Beat The Selfie Game With Stellar Wedding Photos

November 20, 2015  •  Leave a Comment


Richard Fleming Photography knows how stressful planning a wedding can be, and we want to ensure that your 

photos capture memories to be enjoyed long after the honeymoon.  

Here are a few tips to consider when preparing for your wedding photos. ​


1) Wedding Day Itinerary - Schedule your wedding day from the minute you wake up to the 

hour your event ends. Not only will this keep you organized, but a wedding itinerary will help 

keep your vendors on time – including your photographer. Your best photos will be the ones 

that are candid, and when we have a timeline of your entire day, we will know when to step in 

and take a picture from the moment you kiss your spouse, to the first dance, until the time you 

leave. Everything takes a lot longer than you think, so plan ahead. 

 

2) Bridal Party Pictures – It can be a hard job for a photographer to wrangle an unruly 

wedding party for pictures. Appoint your maid of honor, friend, or family member to ensure 

everyone who needs to be featured is present and accounted. Remind them ahead of time and 

after the ceremony to stay in the ceremony location for photos.  This is a collaborative effort, and we waste

time when a guest interrupts a shot, or someone doesn't listen to the photographer

when we say, "Look and smile." 


3) Communicate Time and Location – Did you know there are optimal times that 

photographers take the best shots depending on time and location? We are not Pinterest, but we 

are fun and professional. When you give us these specific details ahead of time, we know the 

right equipment to bring to make sure you have the best lighting and background in all of your 

photos. You’re our focus, and we have an eye for these things – even on days when it’s raining, 

snowing, hot, cold, or windy. Trust us. You hired us to do this. 

 

4)  Limit the Alcohol – We aren’t here to preach, but we’ve had enough experience in this 

industry to know that no amount of photo editing can eliminate a person who looks completely 

toasted. Of course we want you to celebrate, but try to save that for after the pictures. 


5) We Aren’t Robots! – Optimus Prime may not have to eat, but wedding vendors do! 

Planning ahead with your caterers to make sure your photographers are fed, as well as any other 

vendors who attend is much appreciated. While we are happy that you’ve chosen us to be a part 

of your special occasion, many vendors travel out of city or state.  Here’s the perk to serving your 

photographer the same time as the guests: We’ll eat fast, and be ready to rock your photos for 

the cake cutting!

Cheers and Happy Planning! Stay tuned for our next blog...
