Decide on the important must-have wedding moments that the both of you want your photographer to capture. Think about first look photos, the reception entrance, the father daughter dance and so on. Consider that each shot takes around 4-5 seconds and that your photographer might not be able to capture everything on camera. There will be certain moments you’ll want your photographer to document more than others.
Take into consideration your wedding theme.
Whether your big day is more modern or filled with rustic touches, this will be reflected in the moments your photographer documents. Your theme will impact the mood of your wedding photos and may even set the tone for the types of shots your photographer will capture. Make it clear that you want your photos to reflect the theme you worked so hard for your big day to portray.
Think about the subjects of your wedding photos. Of course, the bride and groom will be the focal point of the shots, but photographs of your great-grandmother on the dance floor and tears falling from your fathers face are some that deserve to stand the test of time
Consider how you will use your wedding photos.
Keep in mind that your wedding photos will likely be shared with many of your loved ones and treasured for years to come. Your photographer will be quick to capture all of these moments and you will have plenty of photos to create your own wedding photo book. Use your wedding photos in your thank you cards or to make your own wedding photo album whatever the case may be, these images will help you celebrate the start of together time and time again.

After you’ve formed an idea about the types of shots you want, you can then get your photographer involved by asking questions and clearly relaying your thoughts to him or her.
