And you are packing up all of the last-minute items to bring to the venue. But before you head off to the rehearsal and rehearsal dinner, it is important to grab your wedding day details that you want to be photographed for your special day!
Great question! For the bride, here are some examples of things you should pack for your detail shots…
For the bride…
Did you send really pretty invitations to guests? Do the invitations match the theme of your wedding? I encourage all of my brides to bring an extra invitation suite to be photographed as one of their detail shots!
There are so many different combinations of photos that your photographer can get with your wedding rings! So make sure that you have your rings, and his wedding band, available!
Wearing some stellar high heels for your big day? Make sure to add your them to list of details that you want to be photographed!
This one, in particular, is an essential detail that needs to be photographed for your wedding day! Floral photos are not only beautiful, but the photographer can also get creative and add the wedding rings inside of one of the flowers!
Is their an item from the wedding that you are incorporating, like your grandmothers broach? Or maybe even a grandfather’s handkerchief? You will want to make sure that detail is photographed so that you will have a photo to look back on it forever.

Want to spice things up a little for your wedding day? Why not have a picture of the perfume that you are wearing! Are you wearing a special perfume that your soon-to-be husband has never smelled before? This might be a great time to break it out and get a detail shot of it for your big day!
Just like the bride, it is just as essential to have detail shots for the groom! Most of these items, the groom will already be wearing. However, it is just as important to make sure that your photographer gets these detail shots.
The groom’s shoes are only the essential detail shots your photographer needs to photograph for your big day. The detail shot is paired great with a bow tie, cuff links, so on and so forth.
Speaking of a bow tie, number 2 is…
Is the groom wearing a fun colored or simple bow tie or tie? Make sure that it is added to a detail photo!
Much like a bow tie, cufflinks are great to photograph with the detail shot. Bonus points if the cufflinks are personalized! If that is the case, definitely make sure they are photographed!
Boutonnieres are a nice touch to a great detail shot! It ties in perfectly with the rest of the details like the cufflinks and bow tie.
Much like the perfume, a photo of the men’s cologne is great because if the groom is trying out a new perfume for the wedding, it adds a nice touch to the detail shot!
***BONUS DETAIL SHOT***
One of the coolest wedding trends floating around is funky socks! Funky socks are really fun to photograph with the Groom’s shoes!
