It always baffles us to hear that a wedding photographer was not invited to the rehearsal, after all, if you want to best possible photographs on your day, they should be invited to view the ceremony hall and the reception venue prior to the wedding.
They can then look at the space, the lighting and start generating ideas about how the photographs will look and how they will work on the day. Of course, a well-respected and experienced wedding photographer will most likely visit your wedding venue before the big day, but it still makes sense to invite them to the venue for the rehearsal. It’s also a good opportunity to have them meet your closest family members; after all, they’re going to be photographing them as well as you throughout the course of the wedding day. If you are planning your wedding and the rehearsal is near, make sure you invite your wedding photographer.
