It’s not every day you’ve got an amazing professional photographer at your beck and call, so why not make the most of their skills and prowess and ask them to take a few creative shots on your wedding day that will add a unique element to your wedding album.
Everyone loves the traditional couple shots, family photos and bridesmaid group snaps, but these cool and quirky ideas will make your wedding album a talking point for years to come.
Get creative with your wedding rings by putting them in unexpected objects, like this couple did in a bird’s nest – ideal if you’re having an outdoor or woodland wedding.
2. The fun picture
While posed portraits are great to hand out to the family, it’s great to mix things up a bit with some funny shots, which can be used in the wedding thank you cards. We love this tug of war battle between the bride and groom.
Whether you spent weeks choreographing your dance or are winging it on your wedding day, an action shot of you and your brand new husband hitting the dance floor will forever remind you of how lovely it felt to twirl like a princess.
Well it is a romantic occasion after all, so you make like in the movies and get that dreamy shot. Whether it’s a snap of the two of your frolicking through the fields, or posing by the beach, this is one to frame on the mantelpiece as well as immortalise in the wedding album.
Go crazy with your maids and nail that fun shot you’ll all look back at with a smile. Frame the shot for each of them as a gift to thank them for everything they did for you in the wedmin process.
9. The one-of-a-kind shot
Okay, so this couple couldn’t really predict there would be a rainbow on their wedding day, but when they saw it, they made the most of it.
Keep an eye out for quirky happenings like that and turn them to your advantage, like this couple hit by a blizzard.
10. Getting ready
Many of the brides we talk to say that their favourite memory of their wedding day is getting ready with their best friends in the bridal suite, so make sure to invite your photographer early in the day to take photos of the special occasion.
12. The first look when he sees you walk down the aisle
You’ll be so overcome with emotion that you might not remember this moment, so it’s very important for the photographer to capture it. It may well end up being your favourite photo taken on your big day, or at least one of the most natural, unposed snaps.
