Tips for great cake-cutting photos at your Prescott wedding

Feb 27, 2019

Aris Affairs Photography can capture the beauty of your Prescott wedding with professional wedding photography.The wedding cake is an age-old tradition which symbolizes the first activity in which the newlyweds participate together. Aris Affairs Photography has some ideas for great cake-cutting photos at your Prescott wedding!

Since the wedding cake is the central focus of the reception dinner, it is an essential element of the wedding photography. There are numerous ways to assure great wedding cake photos:

  • Decorate the cake with a unique cake topper. Some couples prefer traditional miniatures Others opt for something trendy and different, sometimes showcasing their favorite sports or activities.
  • Cake Cutting 101. You may think, “What could be simpler than cutting a cake? Ask your cake baker or caterer if there are any important instructions on where to make the first cut. You wouldn’t want to slice in a place that could cause the cake to come tumbling down. Your baker will likely advise you to cut from the bottom tier.
  • To smash or not to smash? The newlyweds usually feed each other the first slice, symbolizing their care and provision for each other. Old tradition has often been replaced by a more recent one: smashing the cake into the faces of each other. But don’t smash just because you think your guests expect it. Do what you want to do. Plan for it like you will plan for many things: as a couple.
  • The cake cutting photos. Before the celebration, make specific plans with your photographer. Do you want a traditional posed shot with you cutting the cake together, or a less formal and more spontaneous photo? Would you like a close-up of both of your hands on the knife or just the big picture? Are you only interested in the big picture? Plan with your photographer to capture the just right photos.
