The Art of Selecting Picture Perfect Details for Your Wedding Style

The Art of Selecting Picture Perfect Details for Your Wedding Style

A guest post by Taylor Dawn

Choosing your wedding details is one aspect of wedding day that is so important to me, especially in working with your photographer! Take a few moments at the beginning of the wedding day to style and capture these small details. It will leave you with images you will cherish forever. Because my couples have chosen and invested in specific items, I know that they are important to them, and I want them to be thoughtfully captured in their wedding day images. Here are my tips on the things I think every bride will be thankful for incorporating in their wedding day details:

Paper Goods

From your invitation, to menus, to ceremony programs, your wedding day paper goods are one of my favorite things to style and capture. To me, these really bring the full aesthetic and story of the wedding day together. Go with a design that you love and you feel represents you and your partner well.

The jewelry you wear on your wedding day is something you will most likely remember forever. Did you borrow a special ring from a family member? Did your fiancé gift you a special new piece? Spend time with your mom picking out the perfect earrings? Do you have a special box for them?! Even better, bring it along. Leave your shoes in the original bag or box and let’s capture those!

Table Details

One thing I love to curate are table details. These are also so fun to get a photo of at the beginning of the wedding day. Work with your stylist to bring together textures from linens and gorgeous colored napkins that compliment your place cards. Pull those into your detail photos! Of course, you will have images of them on the table, but there’s something about having a specific piece with your new name!

Overall, you won’t go wrong bringing any and all small wedding day details to your planner and photographer to capture for you. Choosing everything in a cohesive color palette with textured and stunning accents is key! This ensures you will have gorgeous images to compliment your wedding gallery at the end of your day!

welcome to my journal

This is where I love sharing recent weddings and sessions, my travels, and life with my husband, and our three pets. When I'm not capturing a wedding day, I'm often enjoying the outdoors with Garrett, playing with our pups, or finding a new place to call home for the weekend. My passion is telling love stories, and I hope I get to fall in love with telling yours.

let's meet!


North Beach was the perfect location for Nicole and Rob's Tybee Island session. While they played with their pup, Lucy, I simply followed. We ran together on the sand, not worrying for once about dirty hems or windy hair.

Christie and Brian strayed from traditional southern clichés and played into the modern lines and motifs of Fernbank Museum of Natural History in Atlanta throughout their wedding design – from their paper to their florals.

I was honored to be able to capture my second photographer's sweet family for her birthday and Mother’s Day present. We played on the grounds of Meadowlark 1939 and came away with the most lovely photos of her and her family.
