The wedding photos are so very important for every couple. How else would we be able to remember every little detail of the big day and enjoy our memories years and years after the wedding? How else would our grandkids or maybe even several times great grandkids see us young and in love on probably one of the happiest days of our life? So, you can skip a grand wedding dinner or lush wedding décor, etc, but don’t deny yourself a good wedding photographer that will catch and hold the moment for you. And the more talented and inventive the photographer is, the better pics you get. Here are some ideas that might inspire you.
Take the most from your environment. Use seasonal peculiarities, local natural objects, etc.
Black&white photos can look wonderful and artful. Or sepia pictures. But make sure you have color photos as well, the majority of them actually.
Use your wedding accessories for unique snaps and interesting compositions. For example, a wedding veil or bouquet, the train of your dress, anything that screams Wedding.
The right lighting is everything for wedding photos, so listen to your photographer’s advice as to when your wedding photos should be made. If they say, we must catch the sunset, then build your wedding timeline around this point – people can wait, the sun never waits.
Don’t be shy to show your affection for each other and your emotions. Thankfully, the 19th century when people were to stay neutral in the pictures, including the wedding photos, is long gone. At the end of the day, it’s emotions that make a perfect photo.
Interesting locations and picturesque landscapes help to get great wedding photos. Sometimes contrasts work. Of course, don’t rely only on your surroundings – you have to work for it, too. But a nice background always works in your favor.
Be inventive with your poses. If your wedding photographer is a pro, he or she will probably give you tips and suggest a few creative poses, but you also can use your imagination – this way, your photos will be unique.
