By, May 21, 2023

At True Photography we understand the importance of capturing authentic moments on your wedding day. It’s these real, raw emotions that make your special day so unique and memorable. In this blog post, we’ll share some tips and tricks for capturing these moments on camera.

1. Hire a Professional Photographer

The first step to capturing authentic moments on your wedding day is to hire a professional photographer. A professional photographer has the experience and skills to anticipate and capture those special moments that you might miss. They’ll know how to use their camera to capture the emotions and atmosphere of your wedding day in a way that no amateur photographer can.

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.

After-Party Indulgences | Late Night Treat Inspiration Board

The clock has struck midnight. Your wedding guests have danced their butts off, and partied hard. How do you reinvigorate the crowd, and keep the celebration going? By breaking out the tasty late night treats, of course :)

End-of-wedding snacks are becoming more and more popular, especially at receptions that wrap up during the wee hours of the night. There are lots of variations on the perfect late night treat. For example, if you’re looking to cool off guests, a miniature ice cream cone is a great choice. Or, to energize the room for one last round of dancing, a ‘coffee and donut shot’ will do the trick. If you’re wanting something savory, you could serve tray-passed juicy sliders, scrumptious egg rolls, or french fry shooters. And, to really surprise your guests, you could arrange for the In-N-Out truck to serve fresh burgers!

Here is a compilation of delectable sweet and savory late night treats from recent weddings. Warning: The following images may make you hungry!
