Details! - Jill and Kai's St . Louis Wedding at Caroline Vineyard

While we love taking pictures of the Bride and Groom on their wedding day, most St. Louis brides and grooms like to have pictures of the little details that made their wedding extra special. To get the best shots of your details, remember to leave extra time in your wedding day for detail photos.

Let's look at some of the detail shots that we like to capture and we'll share some tips along the way.

If you'd like a photo of your dress, make sure to not only have us arrive before you put it on (duh!), but also remember to bring along a nice hanger to show it off; while a wire hanger can work, it doesn't look classy or fitting for a wedding dress. Since you've budgeted enough time on your wedding day for taking all of these detail pictures, we'll have plenty of opportunity to scout out the best place to set it up and photograph it.

Rings look beautiful on your fingers, but to give the rings the glory they deserve, we like to borrow them from you for a few minutes (we always give them back!) to take some close up shots.

We always photograph your cake before you eat it (and, of course, when you cut it, feed it to each other, or shove it in each other's faces). Cake toppers and flowers can make your cake picture perfect.

Your bouquet needs its moment to shine as well. Remember to keep it in water when you aren't using it so that the flowers stay fresh.

And - don't forget the shoes! Keep in mind that you don't need to wear heels. Jill, Kai, and their entire wedding party wore Chuck Taylors. Fun!

When thinking about your details, keep true to yourself - that always yields the best photos. We can't wait to see what you come up with!

Thanks to Jill and Kai for being our model couple and congrats again on your big day! We had a blast working with you!
