For some brides, wedding photoshoot is even more important than all the “I do” part – and we can feel them, these are the first photo memories of the new family – something to hold on to and pass to the future generations. Whether you are getting married soon or photographing a wedding ceremony, these creative wedding photo ideas will bring a breath of fresh air to traditional formal poses.
Hit the road!
Pictures on the road not only look stunningly, they also have a metaphorical meaning: That’s the road you are stepping on to go further together, hand in hand.
This “Abbey Road” reference is really easy to copy and the picture will turn out just great.
“A couple on the road” composition makes the photo look majestic creating a feeling like there are only two of you in the world.
Bridesmaids and best men.
Instead of traditional jumping photos, try playing with the composition, colors around and the angles. For instance, if there is water around, reflection can create an interesting twist:
Try this idea of a time lapse photo:
Or a “bomb explosion”:
Stress the beauty of nature around by taking a photo from the distance.
Ask your best men to goof around:
And goof some more.
Ask bridesmaids to write how you know each other on small chalkboards.
Up & down.
When taking photos, never stop experimenting with angles and perspectives. Very often a simple composition will take your breath away if you shoot it from the bird’s eye view.
Shots from below also deserve some credit – they usually look super fun and creative.
Using mirror in your photoshoot is a proven method many photographers use. It can be a classical shot.
Or something more creative.
Shoot in style.
Pick outfits and accessories that fit the colors of pictorial location or wedding venue – it will definitely add some style to your photos.
Invite furry models.
Are there animals around? Include their adorable faces in the photoshoot.
How about some dog love?
Or a candid photo with a random cat.
A dramatic picture with a horse.
Or maybe someone more exotic.
Or A LOT more exotic.
Theme it up!
Weddings are always more fun with a theme, think of something that defines your couple, that makes you one-of-a-kind. Maybe you share hobbies or tastes? Or is there an interesting story behind your first date? Come up with a cool theme and brainstorm on the fun activities around it.
Get inspired by these brave couples who arranged: A “Star Wars” wedding.
A “Lord of the Rings” wedding.
A “Harry Potter” wedding.
A “Little Mermaid” wedding.
A gangster-style wedding.
And this reggae festival themed wedding.
With or without a theme, fun props will definitely liven up your photos and the party itself!
Try candy floss.
Or whatever else you manage to find.
Include the special guests.
Don’t forget about some candid shots with parents.
And with kids.
Capture all the fun.
After all, having a fun day that you will remeber for years to come is really what matters.
