Unique Wedding Photo Ideas

Every bride wants her wedding photos to be unique, but it doesn’t happen by accident. As you plan for your wedding day, give some consideration to how those decisions will impact your wedding photography plan.


Choosing a non-traditional wedding reception venue, such as a museum, art gallery or zoo, can immediately set your wedding photos apart. How many wedding images do you see with an airplane?


Props to the photo props! Adding a few props to your wedding photos brings a unique element to your pictures.


Have fun. If you are a fun-loving couple, there is no reason to turn your wedding day into a somber event. If you have a great idea for your wedding day photos and activities, share it with your photographer.


Dress the room. Adding additional elements to your room design, such as fabric, up lighting and accent lighting, can help your wedding reception venue take on the feel you are looking for.


Personalize your images. Adding your names to the sand, spelling out your initials with flower petals and other ways of working in your details make the picture “yours”.


Add a ShutterBooth to your wedding reception. Your guests will have a great time and you will get images that will leave you laughing.


Take a few quiet moments to spend with each other. Not only will you be glad you did, but it makes for a great, intimate photo.


Plan an activity for the groomsmen prior to the ceremony. Not only will they appreciate the stress reliever, but it they’ll get fun pictures too! Just remember use sun screen and wait until after the wedding to share a toast.


Look for unique photo opportunities. The steam escaping during the winter can be a dramatic effect to your wedding photos.


Use nature as your backdrop. A great sunset can add visual interest to your wedding pictures. If you are interested in a few sunset images, let your photographer know. He or she can watch for the moment when the lighting is perfect; while you enjoy mingling with your guests.

3 Steps to Building the Ultimate Wedding Package


1. Pick Your Wedding Photographer(s)

Whether you want ultra-creative or classic photos, our professional wedding photographers can deliver whatever kind of aesthetic you’re looking for. Each photographer offers their own unique professional approach to wedding photography, and you can pick the right one for you. The photography is just the start of the ultimate wedding package.

2. Pick Your Wedding Videographer(s)

One of the biggest regrets we hear from the over 25,000 couples we have served is that they didn’t get a professional wedding video made. Don’t let that be your regret! Like our photographers, our videographers can create cinematic wedding videos that spotlight your love. Whatever you’re looking for, our videographers will deliver a wedding video that you’ll be able to enjoy for years and share with future generations.

3. Pick Your Wedding DJ & MC

In order to capture photos and videos of the touching, hilarious and memorable moments at your wedding reception, you’re going to need the right music at the right time. The final piece of the ultimate wedding package, our DJs will bring your wedding celebration to the next level. Pick the music, don’t pick the music, create a “do not play list”, or give us no list at all, we’ll get to know you and your guests and construct a playlist that fits just right. But our DJs do more than just play songs, they bring energy to your wedding with engaging announcements, introductions and more.
