What are some good ideas for bride & groom wedding photos?
If you are getting married you might be thinking “
what are some good ideas for bride & groom wedding photos“? Well this is an awesome question every bride and groom should be asking before their wedding day.
There are so many different styles when it comes to photography, even wedding photography. Read my article on
What Style of Wedding Photography to discover your photography style.
Once you have established your
style of photography, it will help you decide on the kinds of photos you would like captured on your wedding day. But it all still depends on your likes and dislikes. As you search through many wedding photographer’s portfolios, you will start to see repetition in the kinds of images you are drawn too, helping to establish your style.
Most of my couples choose me as their
wedding photographer because of my natural approach to shooting weddings. The majority of images captured are unposed and more candid to let the real moments organically happen, rather than staging photos.
There are a lot of images featured throughout my website – just browse
recent weddings and the galleries at your leisure.
But overall, my advice would be to find a photographer that you relate to their work but also one that you’re comfortable with. After all, on the wedding day you will be alongside each other all day.
Ive put together some galleries for each part of the wedding day, so you can get a
good idea for the kinds of wedding photos I capture of bride and grooms on the day.

GROUP PHOTOS & FORMAL FAMILY PHOTOS Family photos at a wedding are important. Sometimes family are travelling from far away, even interstate or internationally to attend your wedding. Even if they aren’t travelling, it important to take the time to at least focus on the immediate family; mums, dads, siblings & their partners & kids, grandparents.
