Most photographers will provide you with both hard and soft copies of your wedding day pictures, so they will last for decades. Your kids and grandkids will be able to see the pictures of your wedding day and you can also relive your wedding day memories anytime you want.

2. Hire a Videographer

One of the biggest dilemmas that couples face is whether to hire both a photographer and a videographer to capture their wedding day memories.

  • For some, the expense of hiring both a photographer and a videographer for their wedding may seem high.

Videographers can capture your wedding day memories and make it more effective by creating videos with special effects and add more value in the form of a beautiful, visual story.

A videographer can put together beautiful videos of the entire day including getting dressed, the ceremony, and the reception. You can also choose the length of the video and capture your wedding memories in as much detail as you want.

Hiring a videographer for your wedding will allow you to relive your special moments in vivid detail.

Even if you and your soon-to-be spouse disagree on whether or not to have elaborate floral centrepieces or serve late-night snacks at the reception, I think you’ll agree that stunning wedding videos are an absolute must.

3. Create an Album

One of the best ways to preserve precious memories and show them off to loved ones is through the use of photo albums.

Traditional albums, hardcover albums, vinyl albums, canvas albums, and even albums with custom artwork are just some of the options available.

Married life is a wonderful adventure that isn’t without its challenges. Your wedding album will be a source of inspiration whenever life presents adversity.

Having photographs from your wedding day on hand can serve as a constant reminder of the joy and love that inspired your marriage and give you strength when times get tough.

4. Use Hashtags

People are more likely to want to post pictures and videos they take of you on social media sites like Instagram, Facebook, and TikTok.

A wedding hashtag will allow you to view all the photos taken during the ceremony and reception in one place.

Getting started is quite easy.

Simply inform your guests about your specific wedding hashtag and ask them to use it when sharing your wedding photos and videos on social media.

You can create a hashtag using a mix of your and your partner’s names or something else that uniquely represents your wedding.

In addition, your wedding hashtag can act as a digital photo album for your special day.

Those who couldn’t attend your wedding will appreciate being able to see some of the festivities by checking out the pictures shared using your wedding hashtag.
