Hi, I'm mattie.


Hey there, friends! :). As a wedding photographer, there’s something truly enchanting about capturing the details that make your special day so unique and beautiful. From the delicate lace on your gown to the personalized touches in your decor, these details are what make your wedding day truly yours. So, let’s dive into the world of wedding detail photos and why they’re so important!

What Are Wedding Detail Photos?

Wedding detail photos are exactly what they sound like – they’re the close-up shots of the little details that make your wedding day one-of-a-kind. This includes everything from the rings and bouquets to the invitations and table settings. These photos serve as snapshots of the small moments and touches that you’ve spent months planning and dreaming about.

Why Do We Take Them?

While the candid shots of you and your loved ones are undoubtedly precious, detail photos add depth and dimension to your wedding album. They help to tell the full story of your day, capturing not just the big moments, but also the smaller, more intimate ones. Plus, they serve as beautiful mementos of all the hard work and thought that went into planning every aspect of your wedding.

What Does Our Setup Look Like?

Capturing stunning detail photos requires more than just a keen eye – it also requires the right equipment and setup. Typically, I’ll bring along a macro lens to capture those up-close shots with incredible detail and clarity. I’ll also make use of natural light whenever possible to ensure that your photos have a soft, romantic feel.

As for the setup itself, it’s all about finding the perfect angle and composition to highlight each detail. Whether it’s arranging your invitation suite on a bed of flowers or draping your veil over a vintage chair, we work to create stunning setups that reflect your style and vision.

How Long Does It Take?

The time it takes to capture your detail photos will vary depending on the size and complexity of your wedding. Generally, I’ll allocate around an hour specifically for detail shots. This gives me enough time to photograph all the key elements while still allowing plenty of time for the rest of the day’s festivities.

Wedding detail photos are so beautiful when you incorporate loose florals and accents of color from your day!

Questions to Consider

  • Have you thought about which details are most important to you? (e.g., rings, bouquet, signage)
  • Are there any special heirlooms or family traditions that you want to incorporate into your detail photos?

Wedding detail photos are more than just pretty pictures – they’re a way to preserve the memories of your special day for years to come. By working closely with your photographer and taking the time to plan out your detail shots, you’ll ensure that every aspect of your wedding is captured in all its beauty and splendor.

Happy planning, and please use this detail checklist to help!
