When it comes to wedding photos, many couples seem to have similar ideas on what type of photos to have. There are the standard, more traditional shots, often of the families and friends that came to the wedding and of course, not forgetting the happy couple themselves.
There are also some couples, and photographers, who are making bridal photos something a little bit different. They are thinking of new and exciting ways to capture their wedding day and keep some happy memories.
With this in mind, we thought it might be a great idea to take a look at 5 of the most swoon-worthy bridal photos, perhaps to inspire you to try them out for your own special day.
YOUR HANDS TOGETHER AS A HEART
Close-up photos are becoming more and more popular for many couples, and with good reason. Not only are they great fun, but if you choose to make a shape of a heart with your hands, or something similar, then you will also have a really sweet and romantic shot too. You can make this even more swoon-worthy by having a sunset in the background.
AN AERIAL SHOT OF YOUR DRESS
Choosing a wedding dress is one of the biggest decisions for the bride on their big day, so it makes sense that your photographer tries to capture it in all its glory. An aerial shot of the wedding dress looks amazing. If the bride is feeling brave she can lay down on the grass, with her new husband lying next to her, an absolutely stunning shot.
ALL THE GENERATIONS TOGETHER
Are you lucky enough to have your grandparents around? Want to make sure that you get a special photo with them on your big day? Make sure that you tell your photographer that you want a shot of the generations together. This might be of your faces, a standard photo, or, you could also ask for a close up shot of your hands.
A PRE MAKEOVER SHOT
Arranged to wake up with your bride-tribe on the big day? If you are feeling brave then you could ask the photographer to arrive early enough to take a photo of you all before the hair and make-up makeover begins. You might be worried about this shot being taken, but it can actually be a really great photo of you all.
THE FIRST LOOKS
One of the most emotional shots that you can capture on a wedding day is the moment when the bride is seen for the first time. This could be by her father, her bridesmaids or the groom himself. The important thing is to capture the raw emotion that is felt when they see how beautiful she looks in her dress.
The possibilities really are endless when it comes to wedding day photos. Whether you focus on the beauty of your wedding dress in more detail, capture some of the people most important to you having some fun or simply let your photographer come up with their own ideas on the types of photos to take, we know that you will have some amazing photos that you can treasure for many years to come.
