Tips for Fun, Personalized Engagement and Wedding Photos

| Inspiration, Wedding Ideas

I am stunned with the way wedding photography has evolved over the past few years. 

It used to be just poses with the family, the bride and groom in the poorly lit church and pictures of their hands awkwardly placed on top of each other.

Basically a nightmare for the bride and groom because everything was over-posed and the smiles were forced. 

 Now, wedding photography has turned into a really fun part of the day that the bride and groom look forward to.

There is creativity, color and realness in the photos now; they show who the bride and groom really are and what types of personalities they have.

Also, photographers are picking up the little details that made the day personalized. I love this idea because while you remember the big things about your wedding day, you sometimes forget about the small details that made your day yours. 

While the family poses are nice, its lots of fun to look back on pictures that bring back the amazing memories of the best day of your life, and you can laugh at the fun poses you did and get butterflies when you see the sensual pictures of you and your hubby sharing special first moments as husband and wife.

Here are a few poses that I am in love with:

I love this photo idea because it shows both the rings and the shoes – two things every bride obsess over when it comes to their wedding day.

Use of props in photos add a ton of fun and add personality to your shots. I love adding balloons, bikes, pennants and anything else that can personalize your photos. 

While some of these are engagement shoots and not wedding shots, I love the idea of themed photoshoots. Take something that you and your hubby love to do and capture it with photos.

I love the idea of finding an old brick wall or an old building to use as a backdrop for your photos. It adds a little bit of texture but still focuses on the most important thing in the picture – you.

 

 Shoe Shot:

 This was the only photo I had to have taken at my wedding. A shot of our shoes. I don’t know why I love this so much, I just think it is so adorable.

Anyone can take a shot of your face, I love these photos that are just of the neck down. Different perspective and you can focus on details other than your faces, like bouquets, shoes, attire or props. 

 

What do you think? What photo is a must have for you?
