i loved what our photographer had us do, but i don’t know if it’s realistic for everyone. there was a chaise lounge in the lobby of our venue and they let us bring it out on the street.

I love loose poses and I will try and post some tonight {so behind on our blogging!} make sure that if you want this type of photography that you look for photographers that have this in their portfolio.  Don’t assume that if you show your photographer these photos they will be able to pull it off, especially if they are geared towards photojournalism.  It takes good posing and lighting skills to pull these off and weddings are very chaotic and you don’t have a lot of time for each set up so choosing someone who can already do this well is key. 

Good luck and happy planning.

I like this one–and it’s relatively simple for any photographer to set up!

The New Formal Shots

Pretty maids all in a row is standard, but kind of boring. Wedding photographer Genevieve Leiper of Genevieve Leiper Photography, 703-200-0428, genevieveleiper.com, gives a great tip: Instead of having the couple smushed in the middle of their groomsmen and bridesmaids, try moving the couple to the foreground, and have the wedding party relax in the background. “This makes for a really intimate shot of the couple,” Leiper says.

In one of our photos the groomsman lifted me and my hub on their shoulders and I love the shot.

sorry they’re mainly of just the maids, but you could easily use the ideas.

Ooh, I love all of those, ceamoste!

I’m having a difficult time limiting my must-have photo list! I think I’ll just send the inspirational photos I find to my wedding photographer (a pro, but also a close friend), and ask for one-two “creative” photos of the wedding party. I hope that’s a good compromise! I don’t want to be too demanding, or interfere with the photographer’s flow.

I love NON-traditional styles! here are a few ideas…just get the group together and let them interact a bit..if the photographer is good they should get a few nice shots of the interactions!Cool

I saw this one somewhere and saved it (maybe even on the bee somewhere?)… I love it and FI is a big football fan so we’ll probably give it a try!

Pro-tip: Strapless dresses and jumping poses do NOT go well together! Trust me, I speak from horrible experience!

At my friend’s wedding the photog had the groom sit in the middle of all the girls and we posed blowing kisses at him. He blushed bright red! It was so cute and funny!
