Over the years, we have come to learn what couples want from their wedding photos. The “must haves”, as we like to call them, are the photos most couples want to see in their wedding albums. You know what we’re talking about – the bride getting ready, the bridal gown, those fabulous bridal shoes, the bridal bouquet, the bridal party, table centerpieces at the reception, first dance and many others. But one photo that doesn’t get as much attention as it should is that of the groom’s portrait. Oh, yes! The groom! We can’t forget about him! Let’s face it, everyone says it’s the “bride’s day” and there is a lot of attention we pay to the bride because she certainly is the queen of the day. She has the bridal gown that took months to find, the perfect “look” from the best Boston hair and make-up artists, the most fabulous shoes she has ever worn, and she carries a fabulous floral bouquet. But we can’t imagine not paying as much attention to the groom.
We love taking some time just before the ceremony starts to capture the groom. No one really talks about the groom’s getting-ready photos, but BKB loves to take them! We love seeing the excited groom with his groomsmen donning on their tuxes or suits! Maybe we get the perfect shot of the groom’s mother glancing at her son as he straightens his tie. Or perhaps we see the groom reading a card the bride sent him and we get to capture that wonderful sentiment. We also love photos of the groom at the ceremony site prior to the bride’s arrival. There are so many options, and we want to take advantage of that.
Just as a groom loves to see portraits of his bride, Boston brides have been telling us how much love having photos of their grooms as well. Let us take care of that for you. Trust us, they are essential parts of your wedding album and you’ll love that we were able to capture them!
