Let’s talk about a wedding detail box and what exactly to include in them! When it comes to capturing a wedding, there are so many big moments I have the honor of capturing as a wedding photographer. From the first look to the teary-eyed groom watching his bride come down the aisle, there are endless big moments like these that need capturing. And while those are all big moments, I would argue that the details are just as important. Little things like what the location looked like and how you designed your invitation and the shoes you chose to wear are all things you’ll want to remember! The details matter!
And when it comes to us photographers capturing those details for you, a detail box makes that process much easier! So, today I want to share exactly what you should include in that detail box and what all those little things are that you’ll want to be captured.
Accessories!! This can consist of anything to do with your rings, necklaces, earrings, ribbons, buttons, watches, etc. One important tip I’ll give you is to make sure your rings are clean as well as other important jewelry prior to the wedding day.
02. SENTIMENTAL ITEMS
If you have any sentimental items, have those sentimental items put away in your box. Maybe your something borrowed or something blue! Oftentimes, we never photograph sentimental items in our life so having them captured on your wedding day makes it extra special. 🙂
Have your florist put aside a few pieces of loose florals to be photographed with the rest of your details. Florals help give the photos more of texture and add in more of your wedding style too!
04. SHOES / CLOTHING PIECES
Grab your heels, fancy shoes, or whatever you plan on wearing the day of your wedding. Clean them up and make sure there’s no dirt or tags on them before you set them aside. Other clothing pieces might be your pocket square, bowties or ties, garter, etc.
We can’t forget about those invitations and save the dates! In my opinion, this is one of the most important items as typically there was a lot of time and effort into not only creating them but putting them together and mailing them out too. All of that hard work deserves to be captured!
