There are countless ways to include your siblings, parents or kids in your wedding photos. However, there are always those basic ideas worth trying out such as ‘the three generations’ where the bride is sitting between her mother and grandmother, ‘the time machine’ where bride and groom hold their parents’ wedding photos, candid photo where groom’s mother is doing the last-minute shirt ironing while being fully made-up etc.
And when it comes to pets, you are well aware that they make a big part of our lives. This is why photos with furry friends are always the cutest (if they manage to be calm enough to take them). But don’t take my word for it, check it out yourself.
Of course, you will have your official first dance at the wedding reception, but that doesn’t stop you from performing your own private one. Since wedding photos are usually taken a couple of days prior to the wedding, you two should feel free to have fun and dance around your photoshoot venue while being photographed. This way the photographer will be able to capture the spontaneous and completely honest intimacy between you two, which is priceless and something that cannot be faked.
Photos that are captured without posing usually turn out to be the best ones, because those photos truly capture the moment, whether that is a romantic moment, laugh or something else – it is pure and 100 percent honest, and tells the more complete story than any other staged and posed photo. So, make sure you tell your photographer to take as many candid photos as they can.
Luxury is timeless – always was and always will be. And your wedding is the time when you can and should treat yourself with some luxury. Have you always dreamed about being a princess? Take your photos inside of a castle. Is your dream to drive a Bentley? Well, it’s okay if you cannot afford one, simply visit your local Bentley car hire in Sydney and hire one of those beauties for your photoshoot. Everything is possible with just a little bit of research and knowing the right people (wink).
The kissThese photos have literally countless variations – veil kiss, hand kiss, forehead kiss, ‘give us some privacy kiss’ where the guests have their eyes covered in the background etc. And even though these photos may seem a little bit mainstream, they just cannot be left out. After all, you two are planning on having a lot of kisses in the future, right?
If there is one wedding photography aspect that has no boundaries, it is definitely this one. The list of ideas is literally endless. You can recreate some iconic band photos such as Abbey road from The Beatles, or your favorite movie poster, you can perform classic shots from above or below, color coordinate etc. Consider your common interests, things you all like and funny past events you can recreate and incorporate. At the end, two things are certain – while taking these photos you will have the time of your lives, and they will definitely be among the coolest ones in your photo book.
Finally, remember, just like every marriage, every wedding photoshoot is a story for itself. So whatever theme or location you choose, don’t neglect the importance of incorporating your personal touch and common passions. Have fun at your photoshoot, and if you have some more ideas, feel free to share them in the comment section below.
