View Full Version : Fun shots for wedding party.

Hey y'all! I'm a wedding photographer and this weekend I have a wedding. I'm super excited because the bride wants photos of her with the groomsmen and photos of the groom with the bridesmaids. :cool1:

None of my previous weddings wanted that so I'm not real sure what to do. I do the usual jumping shots, but I think people are tired of that. I need ideas for fun shots (not picking the bride up) pleeeeeeeeease. Any ideas would be greatly appreciated! I'd love to see any photos you could share. Thanks!!! :thumbsup2

Here is something that I have seen used well in the past; take your cue from Broadway or Hollywood Musicals. Many times the production numbers feature a male or female performer and many of the opposite sex.

For instance, have the bride in a chair being held by the groomsmen as if they were carrying her like a queen. Some things are only possible if you are shooting indoors, but I think you get the idea.

Let us know how things work out!
