Your wedding day photos are going to help you remember what a wonderful day it was. They can be a little crazy, sappy, and just all-around unique. Here are a few ideas to help you capture some unique moments that you’ll want to remember forever.
1. Only Surrounded by Love
For this photo, you will need a significantly large space outside (assuming that your guests make up a pretty long list). You can do this on grass, but concrete is better since you’ll be able to pre-draw a heart for everyone to stand on. This ensures that the heart is shaped perfectly for the photo. Then, you and your groom will stand with one another inside of the heart while all of your friends, family, and loved ones gather around you in the shape of a heart. It is a shot that demonstrates that you are surrounded by love.
2. Three Generations of Women
So long as all three generations are living, this wedding photo will be of you, your mother and your maternal grandmother. All three of you will wear your wedding bands and the photo will only be of your hands, which will be linked together by pinkies and thumbs.
3. Bridesmaids’ Toast from Below
All of the photos don’t have to be about you, the bride. After all, your wedding party is just as important as you are, especially when you look back on these photos years down the road. For the bridesmaids’ toast, get all the girls together and a photographer beneath them. The photo will be a shot of the girls with their arms in, raising their champagne glasses for the toast.
4. Kidnapping the Groom
You will do everything in your power to make sure that this wedding happens, even if you have to kidnap the groom. This photo will feature you and your bridesmaids, or individuals of your choosing, stuffing your groom in the trunk of a car to ensure he gets to the chapel on time and doesn’t get cold feet. This is probably one of the crazier and funnier photos out of the bunch.
5. Cover Your Eyes, Little Ones
For this photo, you and your groom will be kissing in the background. In the front of the photo, however, the little ones will be covering their eyes with their tiny hands. It’s incredibly cute, and it is a great way to get the smaller kiddos into a fun photo.
There’s nothing wrong with being a little different when it comes to your wedding photos. In fact, this is one of the things that can set your wedding apart from others. So, when speaking to your wedding photographer, feel free to edge away from the traditional wedding day photos and consider some of the aforementioned ideas. He or she will be able to help you come with some other incredibly creative and unique ideas as well.
