Your wedding photoshoot pictures will invariably be your most treasured pictures in your life. It’s the day you married your best friend and started a life together. I’m sure, as the years pass by, you would be frequently looking through that album to reminisce that day.
If this is the year you will say “I do”, then here are a few wedding photoshoot ideas which you can think about, which I’m sure you will want to try out. They are simple ideas and don’t involve a lot of background stage work.
1. Let the sun shine through
If it’s a brilliantly sunny day, as the sun sets down, both of you can hold your hands and make a heart shape with your fingers. The photographer can then click a picture of the sun shining through your fingers. It’s a symbolic picture, which most of us don’t get due to the unpredictable weather, and it signifies new beginnings. If clicked right, this picture will look amazing.
2. Get an aerial picture
If you are lucky enough to get a drone then ask your photographer to click some areal shots. One option is that the bride lays on the grass and spreads her gown in a heart shape (obviously the bridesmaids can help with this). Once this is done, the groom can lie on the opposite end and let their eyes meet. In case you are arriving at the church in an open-top car, you can also ask your photographer to click an areal picture with you standing (if possible), or just basically being excited and eager to meet each other at the church for the celebrations. There are many other shots which you can do based on the location and weather to remember the day.
3. Get all the generations in your pic
If you are lucky enough to have your grandparents to be with you both on the day, or if you are even luckier and blessed to have your great grandparents to be with you to share in your joy, then don’t forget to have that generational wedding photoshoot done. It will be a very treasured photo indeed. Get a shot where you are surrounded by the people you love. You can also get all your guests to stand one next to the other in order to form a heart-shaped outline. The happy couple can then go inside and get a picture clicked. You will always remember all your near and dear ones who took the time off and made it to your special day.
4. Go Candid
Going all candid at a wedding is like the new trend, couples no longer only prefer the traditional poses but also like a mix of everything. I love candid wedding photoshoot as they are so natural and have no pretense. They showcase the pure joy and happiness of the bride, groom and all their loved ones. The best way to get the best candid pics is to ask your photographer to always be camera ready, you can also plan ahead the moments you would like to be photographed candidly.
5. Close-Up Pictures
Wedding is all about love and happiness, so ask your photographer to get lovely close up shots together, like looking into each other’s eyes, whispering into his/her ear’s, hands wrapped around the neck, etc. Close up pictures are a great way of portraying the romance and love of the bride and groom.
