How a Wedding Planner Will Make Your Photos Turn Out Better


There are a few aspects to wedding planning that are undoubtedly worth the investment. Each couple will have their own priorities for wedding-must haves, but as far as vendors go, a good place to start is a wedding planner. 

From a photographer’s point of view, hiring a wedding planner can transform the look and feel of your entire day. They not only make the aesthetics of your wedding more appealing, but they can help you be at your best as well. As the bride and groom, should be able to look back at your photos and feel the same happiness and joy that was present on your big day.

In this blog post, I’d like to share three reasons why working with a wedding planner can help your photos turn out better. Let’s dive in!

They Create a Cohesive Design

When you’re planning a wedding, there is nothing more valuable than being able to rely on the expertise of an experienced wedding planner. They take the time to get to know your interests and ideas, and then use that information to create a wedding that reflects your personality. Doesn’t that sound like a win-win situation?

A good wedding planner has the resources to help you find vendors who can bring your wedding style to life. They can set you up with vendors like venues, cake decorators, caterers, photographers (hi, that’s me!), and florists. When you have vendors who are all on the same page, your event will feel seamless, cohesive, and intentional–  the perfect formula for stunning photos.

They Keep Things on a Timeline

There are a lot of moving parts involved in executing a wedding day and having a wedding planner will make sure that everything is organized. Here’s a pro tip: when you’re on the hunt for a wedding planner, look for ones that offer day-of coordination. With this option, you will have their assistance in keeping everything on schedule on your big day.

Wedding planners oversee the timeline of your entire event, so they will have valuable insight into when the best openings are for photos. As a photographer, I love working with wedding planners to make sure that there’s time to sneak the bride and groom away for a few pictures before or after the ceremony. They can also keep track of any special photo ideas you have and share them directly with your photographer.

They Reduce Wedding Day Stress

Your wedding day should be one of the happiest days of your life. Everyone involved in your big day has one main goal, and that’s to make sure you have the least amount of stress possible. All of your vendors play a part in this, but a wedding planner is usually the one who takes on the majority of the wedding details. 

A wedding planner ensures that everything is taken care of, so you can focus on being present with the people you love most. The truth is that people photograph best when they’re happy! When you’re not weighed down by the anxiety of the logistics behind your day, you’re more likely to radiate the joy of getting married, and that will come through in your photos.

If wedding planning is on the horizon for you, I hope you take the time to consider the difference a wedding planner can make. Take it from a photographer, a wedding planner can contribute to an environment where your photos feel beautiful, authentic, and joyful. What more could you want for your big day?
