Ideas for Wedding Photography

Updated on July 31, 2017

Precise Style

Weddings are memorable periods of time in anyone’s life. They are special days that families and friends cherish for years ever after. For most couples, simple and candid pictures are not the desired outcome. Wedding photography is a huge business and a precise style of photography. Doing it right can bring success to any photographer as well as fond memories capture by the camera.

Many Venues

A photographer can choose many venues for his craft or profession, but shooting weddings necessitates learning the technique of capturing wedding ceremonies and participants. In truth, photographers who know more about shooting weddings are more likely to be successful and flourish. Essentially, you want original work with the highest quality of photographs. With that, the wedding family and friends will forever be in awe of your work and recommend you to future brides. They may even call you back for the baby pictures.

Capture Special Moment

Tons of photographs need to be taken to capture anyone special moment in time. The ones that stand out the most in wedding photography are the photographs of the bride and groom, and then the wedding party. The more the photographer is meticulous with each pose the more his endeavor will prove fruitful. Sincere, touching shots are also considered a blessing at weddings. These could be the flower girl dancing with her brother, bride dancing with her father or groom longing for his bride.

We mustn’t forget photographs of guests, inanimate belongings or memorable locations. Common choices are church, cake, rings, and gown.

Trash the Dress

Another unique wedding photography to consider is after the wedding photo session. Such terms as “trash the dress” or “show the candor” allows the bride a relaxing escapade in front of the camera. Now that the formal occasion is over, such sessions embrace the bride wearing her gown in wacky or even offbeat situations. Some offbeat ideas are shots taken with the bride on an amusement ride, on the tennis court or dinning in the surf.

      Yes. Nothing like trashing the dress! It's hard to be original, but all the power to them if they can think of a unique and fun way to celebrate one of the most important moments in their lives.

      I really enjoyed some of these themes. It seems like most of the wedding planners these days are using pinterest to gain their inspiration. It is refreshing to see brides who like to 'trash the dress'!
