As wedding blog, you know we love wedding decor and more than that, we love a really amazing wedding-day detail photograph! (Wait, what’s a wedding detail? Wedding detail photos are any photos that do not have a person in the photograph. Detail photos are of things such as shoes, bouquets, flowers, table decor, signage, invitations and so much more. You can see lots of details here on our wedding inspiration and ideas page!) But, wedding details are NOT what this post is about. Just the opposite, this post today is dedicated to wedding moments, often referred to as candids.
Today, we are honoring and highlighting some of the best candid, unscripted moments of a wedding day from a few of the best wedding photographers in the Washington DC area. I’m talking about the photos that will go into your wedding album or get hung on the family’s picture wall and cherished forever. The wedding photographs where you can just feel the moment – the joy, the excitement, the fear, the nerves – and relive it all over again just by looking!
In this over-saturated Instagram, Pinterest, online wedding planning world special candid moments sometimes get lost. They get overlooked in the gorgeousness of wedding decor and details. I think it is important to honor the special moments that aren’t necessarily as pinnable, if that’s a word, as a wedding detail. As you are looking around for a wedding photographer and doing your research, make sure that your wedding photographer can photograph details and moments. You want to cherish all of wedding photographs forever and ever! That said, here is a round up of some of my favorite wedding moments…
