How to Pack for Wedding Detail Photos | Kansas City Wedding Photographer 

“There is no magic in magic, it’s all in the details”

– Walt Disney

Detail photos are a great way to capture the magic of your wedding! They encapsulate the special sentiments, feelings, and mementos of your big day. Planning for your detail photos should be very personal to you and your spouse, so it is a perfect representation of you and your relationship. There are a few things I recommend making sure you pack, like the invitation suite and the rings. But there is so much wiggle room for you to add your own personal touches so your detail photos are unique to you as a couple.

What to Pack:

  • The rings (wedding bands and engagement bands)
  • Ring box
  • Shoes
  • Jewelry for the day (earrings, necklaces, bracelets, additional rings, cufflinks)
  • Accessories for the day (ties, veils, hair pieces, hats, handkerchief, garter)
  • Perfume or cologne
  • Family heirlooms
  • Wedding dress/suit jacket
  • Letters exchanged between couple
  • Invitation suite
  • Extra florals (please ask your florist to bring some)
  • Trinkets that represent you as a couple  (ex: vinyl records, movie tickets, postcards from past trips)
  • Custom clothing hangers

Stay True to Yourself

These are just a few ideas! Include anything that is personal to you. I recommend you start thinking about which items you’ll want in your detail photos at least a couple months in advance. Start a list so you know what you need to purchase or find. Gather everything a couple days beforehand and double check to see if there are any additional items you want to add. Don’t feel like you have to include something from every category in the list above! Some of the best detail images have minimal items in them. Stay true to yourself and add whatever is important to you. Put all your detail photo items into a small container or shoe box so they are all in one spot. You can hand me the box when I arrive and I will make the magic happen!
