Creating Your Wedding Day Moodboard with Pinterest
You’re recently engaged and it’s time to plan the wedding.
Holy crap do I love Pinterest… Seriously… It’s amazing for planning, researching, compiling ideas and of course my favorite, wasting ungoldy amount of time doing all of that… Lol.
Using Pinterest you’ll be able to get so many ideas of what you want throughout your entire wedding day. From makeup artist ideas, centerpieces, dresses, games, decorations, and of course, wedding photography! So before you visit Google and search – wedding photographers near me – take a look around Pinterest for a few ideas on what kind of photos you’re into
Do you prefer more natural images? Portraits? Light & Airy? Creative lighting? Photo journalistic? A mood board will help you visualize what kind of wedding day images you love and want for yourself. Not in the sense of duplicating but more the feel, emotion, style, lighting, edit, etc. so that you know what you’re looking for. This will help you find the right photographer for you as well as you can show it to your photographer so they know what you’re wanting more out of your day.
If you’re not a person who wants a ton of posed images but you prefer more candid photos, that will show in your mood board.
A mood board is something you will want to create on Pinterest. Here you can “Pin” what inspires you or what you’re interested in as far as how you may want your images to look and feel. It’s just another tool that will help you realize the kind of style you love and appreciate with wedding photography. It’ll also give a great insight for your photographer for the best way to approach your wedding day so that we can capture and craft the best imagery possible for you.
A mood board is NOT a shot list. It’s not exact shots you want duplicated. A shot list is a detailed list of images of the ‘must-have” shots. These kinds of check lists are highly discouraged as it can really hinder the creativity and mindset of your wedding photographer. The purpose of a mood board is for your to search and find the wedding photography style you love. From there you’ll be able to find the right photographer for you and let them know you love their “moody” or “creatively lit” or “light & airy” images.
Trying to exactly re-create the image is also not what we are trying to do but pull inspiration from it. The mood, lighting, pose, techniques, etc. is what we’re drawing from to try and be inspired with that mindset for your wedding day. Recreating any image is very unlikely and will prevent fun and authenticity within your wedding day imagery that we really want. The wedding photographer should be inspired by you and not trying to copy a shot.
Remember, it’s NOT a shot list but rather a way for you to figure out what kind of wedding photography styles you love so that when you search – wedding photographer near me – you’ll know what to search for.
