While you are getting ready, your photographer will probably ask you for you “details” so they can take some detail photos. Not sure, exactly what those details are? Let these pictures inspire you on what to include for your detail shots.


The most common detail shot is the one of your invitation. Be sure to order an extra one so you can have one on hand for the detail shot on wedding day!

There’s nothing quite like a ring shot. The rings are the most significant pieces of jewelry all day, so make sure they get a moment and a picture all to themselves!

Your bouquet is a special part of the day. You designed it, you picked the colors and you’ll want a picture so you can always remember it!

Wax Seal Stamp

If you used a wax seal on your invitations, programs or throughout other details of wedding day, including it in your detail shots is a great addition.

Save the Date

You spent a lot of time picking out all your paper goods, so if your save the date is something you really loved, include it in your pictures.

Perfume Bottle

Maybe you have a signature scent and the bottle happens to be super pretty. Well then, it would make for a great picture!
