For many future brides and grooms, few relationships are as important as the one they have with their dad. His never-ending wisdom and advice, superhero skills, and exciting ball games are unforgettable for sure. Weddings are an emotional occasion for almost everyone but for the fathers, they’re even more sentimental as they see you all grown up, independent and ready to start the next chapter of your life. The bittersweet feelings are hard to describe.
So in honor of Father’s Day, we’re rounding up some of our favorite father-daughter and father-son photos that you shouldn’t miss on your wedding day. (Add them to your shot list and enjoy the moments your photographer will capture!)
Father-Daughter First Look
Arguably one of the sweetest moments of the day, father-daughter first looks are often expected to be full of excitement and genuine happiness, maybe even visited by a few tears. Authentic and cherishable!
Getting Ready Shots
Dads helping their daughters with shoes or veil adjustments (or chatting nervously during bride prep over mimosas) make up some of the most adorable moments. Also, grooms getting help from their fathers with ties, cufflinks and other details are great moments to be captured.
Formal Portraits & Candids
A great time for a shared laugh, we love these picture-perfect moments of togetherness.
Walking Down the Aisle
A proud moment for dad and an exciting moment for the bride gazing on to her groom, this two-fold sweet moment should definitely make the list.
Giving Away the Bride
Giving away the bride is an especially sentimental moment as an exchange of kind, loving words is most likely occurring. Whether between the groom and his future father-in-law, or dad and the bride, this moment is not to be missed.
Nothing conveys the special relationship between a father and daughter than a dance at the wedding. Sweet or playful, these heartwarming moments are truly unique and full of love.
Candid photos are wonderful. Our favorite snapped moments are the ones as you get out the limo, or stand with your dad before entering the ceremony, or during toasts - especially when it features spontaneous laughter.
The Groom Shaking Hands with His Dad
