Your wedding photos will be a lasting memory of your wedding day so it’s important to take some time before your wedding to think about the style of your photos and if there are any special moments, people or items you would like to capture.
Here a few wedding photoshoot ideas to get your creative thoughts flowing.
1. Focus on Small Details
Sometimes, it’s not about the big gestures but the small. Capture some photos where the minor details get the main focus. The small things in photos, like rings, veil, funny groomsmen’s socks, etc., are often significant elements that can be overlooked but when captured in photos these smaller objects bring back wonderful memories.
2. Invite Pets into the Frame
No photoshoot that involves pets can be a bad one. In fact, the only thing you should worry about is a pet stealing all the attention! On a serious note, pets are also family members, so capturing some moments with your pet can be a precious memory. On a practical level, if you are getting ready at home these should be fun easy shots to take but obviously if you are jetting off abroad for your wedding taking photos of you and your pet will not be quite so
3. Be Silly like No One Watching
Let yourself go and show your raw emotions. Don’t overthink it. Have fun with it. Show the true, quirky you in your photos. Not all wedding photos need to be traditional so take some time out to have fun with each other and your wedding party, be unpredictable, make funny faces, and have a ball!
4. Generation Photo
Weddings exist to celebrate love and life unions. Have a photoshoot that celebrates love in all its forms and across all generations at your wedding. A generation photo with your parents and grandparents is a wonderful way to view the timeline of marriage and love.
5. Disposable Cameras Photoshoot
Everyone will be taking photos on their phones but there is something fun about using disposable cameras. Offer each of your guests a disposable camera and ask them to capture special moments or items. You can even offer some games or challenges to your guests involving disposable cameras. Such a trick will spark their interest and add even more fun to your day.
