The Must-Capture Moments on Your Wedding Day


There are so many special moments throughout your wedding day, from walking down the aisle to the first dance, that you want to remember it all. One of the most precious ways of looking back at the day is capturing them in your wedding photos. The album is something that you will be looking at forever, so you want to make sure it captures every moment that you want it to.


At Abraxas we believe the best pictures should tell a story. It’s best to give your photographer a list of shots that are an absolute must, they can include this in your wedding photography package and ensure they capture everything you want.


Here is our list of wedding day shots we recommend every bride should ask their photographer to capture. 



Getting Ready


Asking your wedding photographer to get pre-wedding shots of you and your entourage getting ready can really capture raw emotion. There are so many nerves mixed with excitement that can really come across in a picture. This is also a good opportunity to get some shots with your bridesmaids, groomsmen and family while you’re preparing for the day ahead.




The first kiss


This is one of the most important moments of the whole day. You’ve just finished the ceremony and have the rest of your lives ahead of you as a married couple. Of course, some couples prefer not to have pictures during the ceremony however these shots can be very effective.




The confetti shot


One of our favourite wedding shots to capture is the confetti moment. This is a great chance to get all of the guests and the couple all in one natural photo where everyone is having fun. There is always so much going on that it makes for a for a frame full of action.






Group shots


There are often so many people on your guest list that it’s difficult to have pictures with every different group. However, to make sure you use your time with the photographer effectively, consider pre planning the group shots you want to avoid disappointment after the day.



Whether you’re looking for a wedding photographer in Bedford or even a wedding video company in Bedfordshire we’d be more than happy to discuss a list of shots you’d like on your special day.
