Photography is an essential part of your wedding, and you may find yourself browsing through dozens of LGBT wedding photographers before picking the right one for you and your partner. Already your wedding is non-traditional. How can you make your wedding photos even more unique? Below are some photo shoot ideas to inspire creative ways of capturing your wedding day including your friends and family.
Your Guide to a Creative LGBT Photo Shoot
1. Take On New Roles
As your families join to celebrate your wedding day, consider the non-traditional experience of you and your partner walking down the aisle side by side, rather than with a parent or family member.
After the ceremony, your wedding photographer can provide ideas on how to create loving, private moments using your surroundings as a backdrop, as in these portraits by Brooklyn based photographer Karen Wise.
2. Dance the Night Away
Choreographed dance photos are a great way to capture the passion and personality of your relationship. Your LGBT wedding photographer will capture the intimate and loving moments between you and your partner during your first dance at the reception. Animated dance routines with your family and friends surrounding you is a great way to show their love and support on your special day. An experienced photographer will bring plenty of ideas to give your photographs a personal touch and ensure the wedding’s most unique and memorable moments are photographed.
3. Similar but Different: Match your Wedding Attire
You can have a lot of fun choosing your attire as a gay couple. By matching your ties, your dresses, or your flowers, let your photographer capture how you both compliment each other through side-by-side photos. These wedding portraits are a special way to convey unity. By contrast, you may choose to differentiate your wedding attire as shown in this beautiful pictures of Nancy and Jen’s wedding shoes, photographed by Karen Wise in Brooklyn.
4. Show off your Wedding Party
Instead of having 10 groomsmen, and 10 bridesmaids, mix it up! Consult your gay-friendly wedding photographer on how you can display your unique wedding party to show you, your partner and your wedding party’s personalities. Consider having your best guy friend as your Guy of Honor, or your favorite gal as your Best Woman. Joyful group photos will convey what’s important to you for years to come.
