I already shared my must have wedding photos with mom, so now it’s dad’s time to shine on the blog in honor of Father’s Day! Here is a list of my Top 10 must have wedding photos with dad:
I love when the groom spends time with his dad while getting ready. It’s the last moments before dad sees his son all grown up. While dad usually arrives ready just before the ceremony, I always recommend telling him to come early for some sweet photo moments.
Opting out of a first look with your partner? Why not share a first look with dad? First looks are always such a sweet moment, and a great time for that last daddy-daughter pep talk. Feel free to include dad, stepdad, and even your partner’s dad! P.S. Don’t forget a tissue to wipe away those tears!
Another classic wedding moment is seeing dad walk the bride down the aisle to get married, so naturally it’s on the list of must have photos.
When you get to the end of the aisle to see your partner, it’s the last moment you have with your dad. Some share a sweet hug, others say a short prayer. I always love capturing it because you can also see how excited your partner is to marry you!
When it comes to planning a photo timeline and list, one of the most important parts is the family photo list. Keep it organized can help stay on track with time and ensure no photo is missed, including a photo with dad.
Having a photo of your dad toasting to you and your new spouse is another must have. I always love hearing the stories that dad’s tell on wedding days. They are usually tear-jerkers, so make sure to have a tissue handy!
I aways know when two families feel connected through a wedding by how the parents interact with each other. I love seeing everyone being so accepting and welcoming each other with open arms.
Planning on sharing a formal dance with dad? Then it’s another must have photo!
With anniversary dances being a growing trend, I always love capturing a photo of dad dancing with mom. It really shows how long love can stand the test of time.
I always love a dad that isn’t afraid to get on the dance floor and show his moves. It’s a party after all, and dancing is the perfect way to celebrate a day filled with joy and love.
