Why Your Florist Should Always Help With Styling
Detail shots. Every bride and wedding vendor knows what I’m talking about. If you troll Pinterest, you’ll find hundreds of boards dedicated to close up shots of shoes, perfume, invitation suites, wedding flowers, and many other small details. As a wedding florist and past bride myself, I love that the new norm for photographers is to take close ups of the small details that make up your wedding day. By using wedding flowers (which you will be ordering anyways!) you can add an organic touch to the more intimate and special details from your wedding day.
I offer customizable wedding flower services to my brides. One of the reasons why I do this is because each wedding and love story is drastically different from the next. I like to think that my arrangements are truly unique to each of my couples and their love story. Having your wedding photographer photograph those tiny but impactful details from your wedding day will truly allow you to look back on your wedding day and see just how special and unique it was to you and your spouse. If your photographer doesn’t ask for these details, put them aside in a box for them! Your invitation suite, the perfume and cologne you are wearing, jewelry, etc.; these are all small details that made your day special to you.
But don’t just take it from me. I’ve asked Christine Kim from Ji Cherir Photography for her input.
“Ask your florist to supply some loose flowers and greenery. It’s the perfect organic element for your detail layouts and gives it more of a romantic look”
Christine, who is a Cincinnati fine art wedding photographer, has a true talent in photographing these detail layouts. You can view her most recent work and see her styled layouts here and here. If you look at the photo examples in these blog posts you can see how much more soft and romantic the detail shots become when you add a little bit of natural organic-ness (flowers!). Your florist will probably already have flowers set aside for these photo (because we love it so much too!), but it never hurts to ask. When your wedding vendors come together, magic happens.
