must have wedding photosWedding photography is a really important part of your wedding planning; you need to pay as much attention as possible to this task. This is because you only get one chance to capture your wedding day, and you do not want to miss the opportunity to capture all the tears, smiles, dances, and romance that makes your wedding day so special and unique. The best way to ensure you are on top of everything as far as wedding photography is concerned is to come up with a  list of must have wedding photos and share it with your wedding photographer well in advance of the actual event so that they are able to nail every photo opportunity that comes their way.
