Take a look at this easy guide on creating the most amazing wedding photo book that will hold unforgettable memories of the most important day of your life. The following five key photos should be the centrepiece of your wedding photography.
1. Bride and groom love photo
Of course, there’s nothing more dreamy and special than a lovely photo of the lovely couple. Luckily, The Emerald Isle has some of the most beautiful natural sceneries in the whole world, which makes the scenic bride and groom photos that more unique and breathtaking. You can choose to take your photo on a greeny hilltop for added impact or go for a more subtle yet equally adorable shot by holding hands or hugging on fairy paths. If you want to avoid photos that everyone else has, let your personality shine through and don’t be afraid to laugh and act silly with your partner. For instance, covering the groom’s eyes with your hands from behind as you both smile is a great way to add a spark of personality and quirkiness to your wedding book without losing the stylish feel.
2. Capture the fashionable accessories
If you have an Instagram account, you know that some of the most popular wedding (and fashion) photos are those that focus on smaller details such as fashion accessories. Some of the most liked images are undoubtedly the amazing snaps from Indian wedding photography – this just goes to show that the more amazing details your wedding has, the more opportunities for stunning photos you get. Therefore, create a nice setting with your bridal shoes, a crown, jewellery, wedding gloves and even your wedding garter in the forefront. For example, you can place your shoes next to a flower vase, your wedding invitation and some jewellery, and you can bet that the photo will look absolutely amazing.
3. Feature the beauty of your wedding gown
If you want to capture the attractive design and stylishness of your wedding dress in its full glory, don’t forget to take a picture of it before you put it on. It will be great to flip through your wedding photography book as if it were a whole story – first there’s just a wedding dress and then it comes to life the moment you put it on. One of the best ways to photograph a wedding dress is to put it on a hanger and then put the hanger somewhere with an interesting background. That can be a window that shows beautiful scenery, a flowy and unique curtain or a set of bridesmaid dresses on each side.
4. The modern family shot
Naturally, no wedding photo book can go without the traditional family shot. So why not mix the modern vibe and your personality with this lovely tradition? Of course, scenery and background can always make everything more stunning. However, one of the best ideas for a modern family shot definitely features everyone in your family holding an empty photo frame with the happy couple standing a bit farther away so that it seems that the frame your family’s holding is actually a picture of the two of you.
5. The bride’s portrait
When it comes to capturing the magic and beauty of the bride, there are just so many different poses you can choose. Again, embracing the charm of nature is always a great way to get an amazing photo. You can sit on the green grass, let the wind play with your hair and dress as you stand at the hilltop, walk towards the sunset, ask for different photo perspectives, etc. In the end, it’s all about you feeling beautiful, magical and happy while being who you are.
Remember, this is your big day. It’s perfectly fine to listen to the advice others have to offer but in the end, the most important thing is to go with your own wishes and desires. Therefore, feel free to make your stylish wedding book as personal and magical as you want, and a true memento of your dream wedding.
