The volume of wedding photography inspiration on the web is staggering, amassing to countless ideas for the bride and groom-to-be to discuss with their photographer. Varying styles of wedding photography may come and go, but we’ve collected some unique ideas that are hopefully here to stay.
Before the First Look
We adore “first look” photos, which capture the emotional exhilaration of the couple on the big day. Capturing the moments right before the couple sees each other is also super sweet as well, which they can look back on and remember the anticipation and excitement.
The Whole Party is Here
It’s always fun to capture your entire wedding party from an interesting perspective and in a way that let’s their personality shine through.
Rainy Day Romance
If it happens to be raining on your wedding day, then remember it with an oh-so-sweet photo under a clear umbrella.
Just the Girls
Instead of just option for traditional front-view bridesmaid shots or with the bouquets covering their faces, many wedding photographers also shoot the bridal party from behind in order to provide a more unique perspective.

Up in the Air
Weddings don’t have to be a formal reserved affair. You should be your normal goofy self! Since wedding photography are normally composed of posed shots, it’s great to add in some action shots in there as well.
Look back on your parents’ weddings by posing with family photographs. We also love the idea of shooting the bride’s engagement ring with the other women in her family.
The Whole Package
One of the highlights of the big day is the bride’s wedding dress. Instead of capturing it from traditional angles, experiment with different unique ways to reveal the most beautiful elements of the gown such as from an aerial view.
In between the perfectly posed photographs, it’s always important for the photographer to capture some genuinely candid shots. These sweet tender moments often best shows the love.
Wide Wide World
To really show the grandeur of the big day, make sure to get in a few wide angle shots of the venue or location. It really helps to capture the magic.
Depth of Field
Selective focus photos are not only romantic, but they also make for artistically interesting shots.
Just Us Two
It is a wedding after all. This means that a super loved up photo is necessary. Your kids may not like it, but these intimate moments simply need to be captured.
