4 Ways to Make Your Wedding Photos More Creative

by Grace Murphy

Taking photos is an important part of most weddings, and the best way to immortalise it. However, you don't want to have photos just like everyone else. You want yours to stand out and evoke real emotion. You want your photos to bring you back to that day as well. This is why you'll need to work a little bit more before taking the photos if you want professional results you'll be happy with. Here are a few ways to make your wedding photos more creative.

Pair photos together

If you want to simulate motion in your pictures, a great way to do so is to pair two photos in a diptych. One example would be of the bride holding the bouquet right before she’s about to throw it and another while she’s in her motion. This will really capture the emotion of the moment.

Go somewhere epic

The scenery will be just as much a part of the show as the couple and will make all the difference in the finished product. This is why you need to think about something more original if you want the pictures to stand out. Natural environments always work. Rock formations near bodies of water work exceptionally well for these types of pictures. As a matter of fact, anything close to water tends to work. Canoe photos on a lake or river are another great option. However, you have to make sure that you go with a proven photographer that understands the quirks or shooting near and on water. Do not only look at their pictures displayed on their website but try to find customer reviews or any awards they may have won in their industry. James Thomas Photography in Essex is the type of photographer you might want to consider. He was a chosen finalist of the East Anglia Wedding Photographer of the Year Award in 2019. Plus, he has many years of experience shooting in nature. A good photographer will be able to control things like water reflection during bright summer days and shadows, for instance, which is essential.

Try original point of views

You also want to be original with your POVs. For instance, instead of shooting the couple head-on, maybe you should have the photographer shoot the couple peeking through the natural surroundings. This will give the shot the moment of a 'stolen look' and make it much more authentic and intimate.

Look for details

The photos don't have to feature the couple prominently in every one. They should be about the event and the occasion as well whilst telling a story. You want to look for shots capturing moments, like people cheering for toasts or enjoying themselves on the dance floor. However, some of the best details are some of the details. For instance, you could have a still shot of the couple holding hands showing their rings. Or a close-up shot of a bride's hair during the ceremony or of a wedding guest with the venue as a backdrop. These are all tips that should allow you to take your wedding pictures to the next level. Remember, you only have one shot at getting this right, so make sure that you’re well prepared and have the right photographer to realise your vision.
