7 Great Wedding Photography Ideas

A wedding is a once-in-a-lifetime event that is filled with photo opportunities. You will want to make sure you work with your photographer to get some amazing shots. There are a few ideas you will want to keep in mind.

First Kiss

The first kiss after being identified as husband and wife is extra important. Be sure to do it big. If you’re a little shy about kissing in front of all of your friends and family, ask the photographer to recreate the first kiss in between the ceremony and reception.

Create a Heart

There’s something whimsical about the happy couple forming a heart with the sides of their hands. One forms one side of the heart, and the other forms the other side. Then, the photographer captures a picture of the couple with the heart acting as a frame.

Include the Wedding Party

Don’t forget to include the entire wedding party in at least one photo. Add some personality into the shot, such as everyone leaping into the air at once. Consider using some of the props around you to make it unique.

Make it Fun

Take at least one photo where you make it fun. You will look back and love the photos where you let loose while being all dressed up. The bride may want to stick out her tongue or the groom may want to show off his mismatched socks.

Dip on the Dance Floor

There’s usually a first dance on the dance floor. Whether you’re a professional dancer or not, be sure that the groom does at least one good dip. This can be such a dramatic photograph that will be a hit within your photo album. Just be sure to choose a first dance song that will allow you to make the dip.

Reenact a Favorite Pose

Consider the different movies you watch. There may be a favorite pose you want to reenact when you’re in your formal attire. It may be the Charlie’s Angels poses with the bridesmaids or even a kiss in the rain like “The Notebook.”

The Wall

Kissing up against a wall is cute, romantic, and a lot of fun at weddings. The bride can be the one leaning against the wall while the groom leans in for a kiss, or it can be the other way around. Explore the surroundings of the wedding and reception space for the “perfect” wall.
When you’re getting married, think about the photos you really want. Then, be sure you talk to your photographer so that they know how to take the necessary photos.
