1. Hire a Professional Photographer

2. Get to Know Your Photographer

To get the most out of your wedding photography, it’s important to build a good relationship with your photographer. Schedule a pre-wedding consultation or engagement shoot to get to know your photographer and their style. This will help you feel more comfortable in front of the camera on your wedding day, and your photographer will be better able to capture those authentic moments.

3. Plan for Candid Shots

While traditional posed photos have their place, some of the most authentic moments are often captured in candid shots. Plan for candid shots by choosing a photographer who has experience in capturing these types of shots. Let your photographer know which moments you want to capture, such as the first look, the exchange of vows, or the first dance, and they’ll be ready to capture those authentic moments on camera.

4. Be in the Moment

One of the biggest mistakes couples make on their wedding day is not being fully present in the moment. It’s easy to get caught up in the stress and excitement of the day, but it’s important to take a step back and enjoy the moment. By being present and in the moment, you’ll create more opportunities for authentic moments to occur, and your photographer will be there to capture them.

5.     Embrace Imperfection

Finally, it’s important to remember that the most authentic moments are often the imperfect ones. Don’t worry about small details or imperfections in your wedding day. Instead, embrace them and focus on the bigger picture. These imperfections are what make your wedding day unique and memorable.
