March 6, 2018 | Posted in Events, Weddings

Though a few traditional poses with the bridal party can be a great addition to your wedding photo album, more married couples are thinking outside of the box when it comes to capturing moments from their special day. Wanting to hone in on more than the pretty dresses or dapper tuxedos, they have started integrating more variety and personality into their photos. If you’re ready to step away from traditional poses and instead add creativity, personality, and capture the true essence of the moment, these wedding photo tips from Versailles Ballroom in New Jersey will give you some inspiration.

Use Props

Many wedding venues or photographers have props that can be used in your photos to add a bit more creativity. You can even make or order your own personalized props from sites like Etsy. As you can see from some of the examples above, couples have used props like Instagram screens, signs, masks, and more to make posing a lot more fun for the bridal party and their wedding guests.

Embrace the Weather

Does the forecast show rain or snow on your wedding day? Instead of getting bummed out about it, embrace the weather. For example, this bridal party put on rainboots to slosh around in the mud without messing up their shoes. Another example is this couple who took photos in the rain with nothing more than umbrellas.

Choose the Right Location

Where you take your wedding photos can also add personality and capture the vibe of the day. Instead of going with an obvious landmark, choose something you and your spouse-to-be love. Take pictures while walking on the beach or playing games on a boardwalk. You could also consider a historical museum or bridge like the examples above.

Have Fun

Instead of being posed traditionally, have fun with your poses. Using props and a bit of creativity, allow your bridal party to express themselves freely in the photos. Wedding pictures come out a lot better when everyone is comfortable and not so uptight. These fun poses definitely show a lot of personality within the bridal party.

You’ll look at your wedding photos over and over again. You want them to take you back to the day you first said I do. So, throw caution to the wind and get creative with your bridal party photos. Use props, embrace the madness of the day, select the right location, and most importantly have fun. If you do, you’ll most certainly be pleased with the final results.
