During these modern days in which we live, the only way to immortalize anything is with photographic proof. Well, that’s not entirely true. I suppose there’s still some value in old-fashioned memories–BUT, when it comes to your wedding day you’re not going to show your friends and future children your “memories”.

Nuh-uh. You’ll want some pretty fantastic photos! Isn’t that what you pay a photographer hundreds of dollars for anyway? It is. And you want the photos to be good and memorable, so before you settle for the typical close-ups of the bouquet and the smooching photos of you and your love, take some tips from these 16 pictures that’ll forever remind you of your perfect day.

1. The second before your partner sees you in all your glory.
