Fun Wedding Photo Ideas

3
The wedding photos do not have to be the same joyless shots of the bridal party arranged like a class picture. People are getting creative with the wedding photos. These fun wedding photo ideas can be used to create keepsakes that will be treasured forever.

One bride had a modest heart cutout of the back of each of her bridesmaids’ dresses. For one great photo, the bride and bridesmaids faced away from the camera with the bride in the center. Having their arms around each other or holding hands would be a sentimental touch.

The newlyweds can take have a photo taken of them holding their parents’ wedding photos. Couples can create a special moment to be part of the wedding photos by placing a word made with large white letters in the grass within the photo. “Love” or “forever” are some good options for the word.

Involve your guests. Have an outline of a heart drawn on the pavement and have guests stand on the outline with the bride and groom standing inside the heart. With everyone facing the photographer, the photo is an excellent way to remember all the friends and family that were at the wedding. Also, it helps the guests feel more involved rather than being sent off to the reception and wait for the photos to be finished.

Creative bride and groom photos can be wonderful keepsakes to be framed and cherished for years to come. One romantic pose is of the bride facing away from the camera with the groom’s arms around her waist. With his hands, he can make a heart shape by having the thumb and index finger of one hand touching the thumb and index finger of the other hand.

Due to the tradition of the groom not seeing the bride before the big day, many couples miss out on touching photo opportunities before the ceremony. Some people have found ways to keep the tradition and still have a wedding photograph of the couple before the wedding. A common strategy is to keep a door between the bride and groom. A partially open door serves as a partition between the couple. A sentimental twist to this wedding photo pose is for the couple to exchange love letters and read them while the photographer takes pictures of the bride and groom’s reactions to the letters.

Sparklers can be great props for a fun wedding photo. The couple could be inside a heart made from sparklers. Some couples get the bridal party and guests involved in holding sparklers for fun wedding photos. If planning to use sparklers, the couple should check to be sure the use of sparklers won’t break the rules of the venue. An alternative location could be used for some sparkler photos or other fun props can be planned if the sparkers aren’t acceptable for the chosen venue.
