5 Must-Have Photos For Your Destination Wedding

Your wedding day will be one of the best days of your life so you'll want to capture as many memories as possible.  If you're hiring a wedding photographer, which is recommended, make sure you discuss with them the most important photographs you want them to take.  Here are five must-have destination wedding photos:

Your Attire And Accessories

Your wedding photographer is going to take photos of your wedding attire, but make sure they get everything you wear, and not just while you're wearing it. Whether you go with a traditional dress or something else, be sure your photographer snaps some photos of your ensemble against a picture perfect background. This includes your shoes, jewelry, garter and anything else you choose to wear. And of course, the groom will want to remember what he wore that day too, so make sure his outfit gets just as much attention.

You In Front Of The Scenery

Whether your wedding is being held on the beach, in some exotic location, or at a historic venue, you'll want to get some photographs of you and your beloved together with the scenery in the background. You can't ever relive those moments, and you might never return to that location again. So be sure that you find a few scenic spots near your ceremony location to get your photos taken.

The Scenery By Itself

Maybe your wedding celebration will end as the sun sets. Or maybe the lighting at night will reflect beautifully against the hundred year old building where your reception is being held. Artistic photos that capture your wedding location without you in them can be quite magnificent. You can hang them on your wall at home as a constant reminder of that special day.

The Food And Drinks

Even if the locals don't think it's a big deal, if you're serving your guests food and drinks that are notorious with the destination you choose, it's something you'll want to remember for years to come when you reminisce about your big day.  Just looking at the photographs will bring back the tastes and smells of your delicious meal.

Wedding Guests Having Fun

Socialize and catch up with all of your guests as you celebrate, and ask your wedding photographer to snap some photos of them enjoying the day. Get some shots of them dancing, laughing and being silly. Get some posed photos of them, and if possible, them with you.  Not only will these remind you of the great time you've had with your loved ones, but they're also perfect for popping in with your thank you cards once you get home.
