5 Fun Wedding Photography Ideas
Create epic wedding photos
I have put together a list of 5 fun wedding photography ideas that I love to do with my couples to create epic wedding photos that really stand out. Every wedding is fun, of course they are. When you have all your favourite people around you how could it not be. But I like to bring the fun from the day into your photos and help create some awesome memories from the time you spent together for your couples portraits.
These are the photos you will want to frame and put on your wall, the photos that your guests will be dying to see and moments that are unique to your day.
1. SMOKE BOMBS
Smoke bombs are one of my favourite things to do, they are colourful, super fun and create amazing results. They come in all kinds of colours so you can choose to match your colour theme, keep it neutral with white or go crazy and use all the colours you can get.
Let me put your mind at ease straight away… the smoke doesn’t dye the wedding dress! (just don’t put the canister down on your train and it will be fine)
I always kick the smoke bomb photos off with the couple opening the bombs and holding them in their hands. Just this task can be pretty funny. Like all of my wedding photography this is a relaxed and fun experience, there are no rules and you can’t get it wrong. I tell my couples to wave the smoke around, celebrate with your arms in the air and do whatever comes naturally.
The smoke bombs only last around 90 seconds so half way through I get the couple to chuck the canisters down, either in front or behind them. This creates another awesome effect, surrounding the couple in a cloud of smoke. This is the perfect opportunity for the couple to get a little closer while hidden within the smoke. For me that means lifting the bride, piggy backs and lots of hugs and kisses.
Look how incredible it looks!
