The Wedding Photo Checklist

The photographer that you choose for your wedding has an important job.

He has to be able to catch all the best pictures from the beginning to the end.

Most wedding photographers have a list they will give you of different photos that is traditional for weddings, and he will have you check off which photos you would like to have taken.

If he doesn't have this list, print this out and check off the pictures you would like to have taken, and give it to your photographer.
