When it comes to weddings, preparation is everything – you’ve spent months, maybe even years, designing your nuptials to reflect your personal style. You likely have a breakdown of exactly what happens when, who goes where, etc. However, there are always small details that engaged couples may not consider addressing: one such aspect being their professional wedding photos. By this, we don’t mean brides and grooms often forget to book a photographer, but rather that they don’t plan out where they want their photo shoot to occur or even what they envision themselves doing in each snapshot.
It’s vital to put together a rough “shot list” of certain areas and poses you, your beloved, and your bridal party would like to include. This is one of the more entertaining aspects of wedding coordination: flipping through fun ideas for an album full of exciting pictures. We know that from time to time, it might be more difficult for a groom to decide on what playful photos he’d like to take with his groomsmen, so to help, we’ve put together a gallery of great ideas taken from the grooms and groomsmen of some of our real weddings! Click each photo for further inspiration from these events.
