While we absolutely love an engagement photo session that takes place outdoors, whether it’s a serene park setting, city streets, etc., we are located in the Northeast. That means weather that can, at times, be uncooperative.

While the prep photos of you and your partner all by your lonesome as well as the shots of the two of you together will absolutely tell a huge part of the story of your wedding day in your album, they won’t tell the whole story.

The thing is that group pictures are a lot more challenging than those that only involve you and/or your partner. Luckily, our NY & NJ wedding photographers have been doing their thing for long enough to have picked up more than a few tricks of the trade. So, read on to learn about a few that should be a big help on your big day.

We talk a lot around here about the importance of scheduling an engagement shoot, and that’s because it won’t just give you another chapter to add to your photo love story, but it’ll also give you the chance to get to know your wedding photographers better and to get a little more comfortable with the whole photography process if you’re not used to it.
Today’s post, however, isn’t about why you should schedule an engagement photo session. It’s about what you should, and shouldn’t, do once you’ve locked yours in. Because trust us as longtime NY & NJ wedding photographers, simply scheduling one doesn’t guarantee you’ll get the most out of it.

As NY & NJ wedding photographers, it’s our jobs not to miss any memorable moments. However, in order for a moment to be memorable to you, your partner, and/or your guests, you need to experience it first. Sure, we can bring you as close to reliving it as possible, but the actual living it you have to do.
The thing is that wedding days are almost always a little chaotic, if not a lot. Even when everything’s going perfectly, it’s still easy to get caught up in one element or area and miss something happening somewhere else. So, while it’s impossible to be everywhere at once, we thought we’d share a few of the moments you absolutely do not want to miss that often are.
There’s no doubt that if you fail to find the right photographers for your big day then that will absolutely effect your album. Whether it’s because you don’t get along with them or their style simply isn’t a good fit for your and your partner’s vision for your wedding, if they’re not right for you then you need to continue your search until you find the ones who are.
But take it from us as longtime NJ & NYC wedding photographers, your choice of vendor isn’t the only potential mistake you can make that will affect your pictures. Read on to learn about a few more.
The work that we do at a wedding is all about reminding the newlyweds along with their friends and families about their celebrations and giving them the chance to relive it all later. However, there are plenty of other vendors whose work will mainly be showcased on the big day itself and, from there, be tossed in the closet. A perfect example of the latter is the wedding dress.
It could one of the focal points of the party if you play your cards right, but once the big day has come and gone, the only way to truly experience your gorgeous gown again will be through your pictures and video. So, as longtime NJ & NYC wedding photographers who’ve creatively captured our share of dresses, we thought we’d share a few photo ideas you may not have considered yet.
