How do they get those cool pictures

I remember as an engaged bride being transported by dreamy  romantic pictures. I knew I wanted it but I didn’t know how to get them or what kind of planning was need to make the it happen.

What I didn’t know was those couples in the magazines opted to spend a little more time with their  photographer on their wedding day or  even after their wedding . They along with their photographer prepared a plan to make sure their was time to explore their surroundings and capture great pictures. They thought about how they could get away alone or with their wedding party to enjoy the day and get some beautiful pictures at the same time.

This extra time isn’t just about posed picture, but those in the moment shots of the groom realizing that he is married to his best friend. Or the bride laughing as the husband spins her in the street. It is about the wedding party celebrating the birth of their loved one’s commitment to each other. All along the way the photographer at times give some directions in and at others they fade away and let the moment happen. Then when the day is done the couple is left with gorgeous and fun memories that help them relive the day.

Even if it is the next day it will still be just as beautiful and as fun. The couple doesn’t have to worry about whether her dress with be destroyed this is when you can truly let loose. Get in the water or lay down on the beach the dress now can be a tool to make beautiful art that will last a lifetime. There is also as much time as you want to go and play with your photographer. In the end it will be difficult not to have stunning heirloom pictures that tell the story of the couple’s love.

It isn’t that difficult to get those pictures because the day will provide the opportunity. All that is required this making time and when you do it will not take away from your wedding day but add enjoyment.
