Get Prepared

The journey of a couple, filled with shared experiences, laughter and connection really comes to life in their wedding photoshoot. It's a story captured through the camera, where each shot tells a part of their story.

Prior to the big day, it's worthwhile having a think about wedding photo ideas that will capture you best as a couple.

Planning for wedding photography is an integral part of preparing for your big day. This is a chance to capture memories that will last a lifetime, and having a clear vision can ensure that the photos reflect your relationship authentically.

1. Research and Inspiration

  • Look for inspiration on platforms like Pinterest, Instagram, or wedding blogs to find styles or specific shots that resonate with you.
  • Explore different wedding photography styles like traditional, photojournalistic, fine art, or editorial to determine what you like.

2. Personalisation

  • Think about incorporating elements that are unique to your relationship in the photos. This could include hobbies, places, pets, or themes that hold special meaning to both of you.
  • Consider the location of your wedding venue and how it can be used to enhance your photos. Iconic landmarks, natural scenery, or urban landscapes can each add a distinctive touch.

3. Consultation with a Professional Wedding Photographer

  • Arrange meetings with potential wedding photographers to discuss your ideas and see if their photography style aligns with your vision.
  • Look through their portfolios to get a sense of their work and ask for references and check their reviews online to ensure they are reputable.

4. Creating a Shot List

  • Prepare a list of ‘must-have’ shots you want captured on the day. This can include key moments like the first look, exchange of vows, first dance, etc., as well as specific people in the bridal party or group photos with friends and family.
  • Share this list with your photographer well in advance, so they have a clear understanding of your expectations.

5. Practical Considerations

  • Consider the timing and lighting, especially if you are planning outdoor shots or have specific ideas for nighttime photography.
  • Ensure there is a backup plan in case of bad weather if your photo session is planned outdoors.

6. Engagement Shoot

  • An engagement shoot can be a great way to get comfortable in front of the camera and with your photographer prior to your big day.
  • Use this as an opportunity to experiment with different angles, styles, locations, and poses to find what you like.

  • Genuine emotions and spontaneous candid moments often make for the perfect shot.

Setting The Scene: Wedding Photoshoot Theme Ideas

If you are wanting a specific theme for your wedding photos, here are some ideas to get you inspired.

Retro Renaissance

Embrace the timeless charm of bygone eras. Think vintage cars, classic black and white or sepia tones, and attire that echoes the elegance of the past. Your love story narrated with a retro essence is bound to stand out. When it comes to framing retro-themed wedding photos, rustic wood frames with a natural mat board or a vintage gold frame would tie in beautifully.

Nature's Canvas

Whether it’s the early morning sun casting golden hues, or the serene backdrop of a secluded beach, the options are endless. Take advantage of the natural lighting and scenery to set the scene for your wedding pictures. Sleek modern frames with wood finishes work really well with nature-themed wedding photos.

Urban Love

The modern love story is often set against the bustling, vibrant cityscape. Utilise modern city architecture, graffiti walls or neon lights to add a contemporary edge to your photoshoot. To frame urban wedding photos, opt for modern metallic frames with sleek, clean lines that complement the cityscape backdrop.

Personal Stories

The places and shared interests that sparked your connection are unique parts of your story. Head back to the coffee shop or bar where you first met, or if you both love animals, snap some shots with your pets. Make your photoshoot a cosy, personal affair.
