Top Five Images to Capture with Your Dad on Your Wedding Day

What’s the most important thing about your wedding day? The dress, the cake, celebrating your love and commitment to each other? All of those are important factors but none is more essential than this one- creating memories you’ll cherish for life. Wedding photography and engagement photography help you make those memories.

Of course, as the bride (and groom), you’re at the center of those memories. But weddings are also the perfect time to say thank you to your parents and capture the meaning of the occasion for them. You may be surprised just how emotional fathers become when their daughters get married. Capture those precious moments for decades and generations to come in five iconic images (not in chronological order)!

1. Walking Down the Aisle

Is there a more iconic father-daughter moment during a wedding than when a father walks his daughter down the aisle? It’s one of those moments when most guests secretly wipe away a tear. Others just can’t take their eyes off you and your dad taking those last few steps toward your new life.

Don’t miss out on capturing that magic moment and your guests’ reactions.

2. Reveal Your Wedding Attire

This idea works for the bride and groom. Most of the time, dads give dress shopping and suit selection a wide berth. That doesn’t mean they won’t be in awe when you walk down the stairs in your dress or your suit!

Make sure you ask your photographer to capture that initial reaction. There is no way of repeating this unique moment, and it often leads to other emotional gestures that are worthy of framing on the wall. A hug, a kiss, a gentle word of advice – those are memories you won’t want to miss out on.

3. Your First Dance

With the formal part of your wedding day nearly over, let us help you capture the joy! First dances are memorable whether you and your dad move like Ginger Rogers and Fred Astaire or not. Remember, your wedding pictures are a great opportunity to make memories you’ll want to look at again and again.

4. The Small Details

How much time did you devote to deciding on the small things? For most brides, choosing cufflinks and other accessories or deciding which table decorations to use is far more than an afterthought.

Why not capture your dad putting on his cufflinks or helping your groom adjust the finer points of his attire? Sometimes the smallest things make the greatest memories.

5. Formal Family Portraits

Formal portraits may not seem like the most exciting images to capture of your wedding day but hear us out: these portraits are often the images that take pride of place on your mantelpiece. They easily give you a memory of your entire family in one image. Don’t pass up on a chance to capture everyone!
