Your Top 10 Wedding Photos

Will Knight

With the average cost of a wedding in the U.S. having reached $28,082 (according to the latest figures from the Association of Bridal Consultants), it is essential that everything goes well on the day. One of the most important elements of any wedding is the photography.

“Many couples find that the excitement and joy of their wedding day means that it often passes by so much faster than they realize,” observes Will Knight of Will Knight Photography. Capturing the perfect wedding photographs is one way in which a wedding photographer can ensure that those magical moments are treasured forever, just as they should be.

“While there are a range of themes and moods that can be used for wedding photographs – from modern, reportage-style pictures to more classic shots – I always ensure that my Top 10 pictures are included for every couple,” explains Mr. Knight.

Based in Chicago, but operating as far afield as Orlando, Florida, and Scottsdale, Arizona, Mr. Knight’s wedding photography business provides a personalized service designed to suit every couple’s individual preferences. Despite the personalized service, there are some classic shots that every couple should ensure are in their collection. In that spirit, Mr. Knight reveals the Top 10 photos that every wedding photographer should get:

1. Groom getting ready.

2. Bride getting hair/makeup done.

3. The first kiss – a classical magic moment.

4. The first dance as man & wife.

5. The cutting into the cake.

6. The accessories: bridal rings, bouquet, favors, tabletops.

7. A formal portrait of the wedding party.

8. A whimsical photo of the wedding party.

9. An imaginative and private candid of the couple.

10. A fun, off-guard photo of the newlyweds.

Together, this set of 10 images will ensure that every couple has a perfect record of the memories of their happiest day. For more information on how to ensure the perfect set of wedding photographs, call Will Knight Photography on 312.961.6067, email or visit
