An Expert Guide to At-Home Wedding Photos


Hire a Professional Photographer

First thing’s first, it’s crucial to determine who will actually be responsible for capturing your meaningful day. According to photographer Jenny Soi, she absolutely loves the concept of having an intimate at-home celebration. But, the idea of a couple doing their own photos is gasp-worthy. “I would deeply urge couples to consider how they want to feel when getting married at home—on cloud nine with zero worries or busy multitasking,” she says.

An at-home wedding certainly doesn’t mean you have to do everything on your own or solely rely on your loved ones to help out. You can still bring vendors into the mix, and a great photographer may be one of the most important to add to your list. “Photography to me is the most important service on your wedding day. I would always advise couples to invest in it, even if you are just doing a small elopement at your home,” adds Wendy Kay, owner and creative director of Tiny Weddings Dallas and Birds of a Feather Events

As you make this decision, you’ll definitely want to put plenty of thought into how much stress you want to put on you and your partner on your wedding day. Adding the expense of bringing in a professional photographer will certainly make the day more memorable as you’ll be able to truly celebrate in the moment.
