Making your wedding photos unique
May 08, 2009
According to some wedding experts, more brides and grooms are saying goodbye to what some may describe as boring wedding pictures.
Instead, couples are opting for unique, unscripted photographic memories by having their photographer taking shots throughout the day in a natural, unobtrusive manner.
Some have called this photojournalism, though that may not mean the photographer actually went to the journalism school. The end result of this approach is a complete story of your wedding day through pictures.
However, sometimes a posed photo is warranted, especially for some family members who may demand "one nice picture with everyone there." This doesn't mean you have to concede to the traditional pose where the wedding party flanks the bride and the groom.
Instead, try picking a place with a unique background or have everyone scatter around to do different poses within the picture. This may be similar to some photo shoots seen in celebrity magazines when an entire cast of a television show is featured.
But perhaps the best thing about this wedding trend is that brides and grooms no longer have to worry about getting a picture with everyone at the reception. All they have to do is act naturally and smile.
