The couple at home
Everything is, after all, about the couple. So take some casual and fun photos that show who you are as a couple. Add some to your wedding photo book to add an unexpected twist to your story.

The seamstress
The seamstress understands the bride like no other. She’s the one who makes the bride’s vision a reality and definitely deserves to be included in your wedding album. Capture the story behind your dress by taking a photo while being fitted.

The pastry chef
When it comes to the wedding cake, don’t just photograph the end result. Take photos of how it was created at the bakery and the talented pastry chef who did all the hard work.
