I had a list of photos that I wanted and gave it to my photographer. That way I knew I was getting exactly what I wanted and then I would also get all of the photos he thought were best.

These are really creative ideas for wedding photos. I’m loving the last photo where everyone’s running from the T-Rex, that would be very memorable indeed lol.

Love, love, love the reflective photos of the bride’s image in the full mirror. Photo editing also opens up a myriad of options. Wish they had that when I got married 23 years ago.

Ideally the reception should last for more than just a few hours-they go so fast it is like a blur. Thank goodness for pictures-at my daughter’s reception I put disposable cameras at each table, collected them and posted the best ones on Facebook.

Very clever-the Jurassic Park scene is hysterical and the heart-shaped people is classic. I think I would also Photoshop the bride and groom onto the wedding cake photo
