The big day is here! There are so many things that could go wrong, but somehow nothing is able to spoil the happiness of you two lovebirds. I’m here today to talk a bit about your wedding photos.
Everything else will happen, pass, and be forgotten, but the photos of your wedding are the only things that’ll truly remain with you forever, and it’s for that particular reason that you want them to be absolutely perfect. I won’t give you any technical details here; we’ll let your chosen photographer worry about those. I’ll give you some tips and ideas about different poses and styles you might want to try out. You don’t want to end up with a bunch of boring photos like people usually have at their weddings. Picture with the bride and groom, picture with this and that… Doesn’t it sound dull? You want you photos to echo the adventure that awaits ahead, the spirit that’s present from the beginning of your relationship, the chemistry… Well, you get the picture (no pun intended).
So, let’s stop wasting time on me trying to convince you to try something new. Let’s see what I have in mind, and you can decide in the very end if you’re up to it or not.
Savor the moments of quiet
Most of your wedding photos will be filled with different people, taken in the middle of the wedding party, with a lot of fuss and noise to them. You’ll definitely want to take a few photos that have that peaceful moment feel to them. They’re called a “pensive moment” photos.
You’ll look like you’re thinking about something, totally lost in your own thoughts, without a care in the world. These are the photos that get the viewers a bit confused, allowing them to experience all sorts of different emotions.
These pictures fall under the “more meaningful” category, and your wedding is the perfect time to have them since it’s a time filled with all sorts of emotions and moments of pure happiness. Just get lost in your own thoughts for a moment, and stay lost until your hear cheese.
Your wedding is basically the heart and soul of your beautiful love story.
It’s always important to be impulsive and let your basic drives guide you through your relationship. Being spontaneous and live for the moment is what attracts every single person on this planet. That’s why you need to have a certain number of photos that were made in the heat of the moments since those will be the ones that’ll put a wide smile on your face even 20-30-40 years from your wedding day. I’ll leave it up to you to figure out what you want them to look like.
Those moments before the ceremony begins
These moments are perfect for reflection since they’re filled with all kinds of different emotions and feelings. Those are beautiful times when you’re filled with a special kind of tenderness emanating from the inside. Taking a photo of a bride just before her wedding as she looks in the distance through the window, as the sun is about to set is just one possible pose for these kinds of photos.
These are just some basic suggestions. Be creative, have fun at your wedding, and make it what it’s supposed to be, a moment you’ll never forget.
