(Text continues below the photo) Wedding photographers seem to be getting more and more creative. They want to take the most original photos, which will eventually lead to more customers. Also, couples who are getting married often wish to have the perfect pictures of this special day — a win-win situation.
And so nowadays we see more and more beautiful, skilfull pictures of brides, grooms, and bridesmaids appearing online.
Everything for the perfect photo
(Text continues below the photo) What else is so special about these pictures? It is about how the photographs are made. And so we can see just how far wedding photographers will sometimes go for the perfect angle.
The following report is just a selection of great wedding shots that have been taken of different couples, and they will perhaps even give you new ideas 😉
1. This will have to go into the wash again tonight
(Text continues below the photo) The wedding photographer is lying with his belly on the ground, fully focussed. He managed to get his crisp-white shirt, which he had just taken out of the closet, dirty almost immediately. The photo may be beautiful with the reflection in the water, but the wife of this wedding photographer won't be thrilled. For this picture, he laid down in the murky and muddy rainwater, wearing his nice clothes.
2. Some preparation was needed for this one
(Text continues below the photo) This wedding couple wanted a picture that no one had ever made. And so they decided to go to the place where they had gotten to know each other. Which was on a rock in a beautiful nature park. However, the wedding photographer thought it was an original idea to take some pictures inside of that rock. In an almost inaccessible place...
3. Those two even needed an assistant
(Text continues below the photo) It seemed to be even better if the bride's dress did flare out a little bit. Thus, the photographer asked his assistant if she wanted to sit behind the bride to stretch the dress with her arms and to make it look even better on the picture.
4. The perfect sunlight
(Text continues below the photo) This photographer also decided to lie on the grass on his belly. It did not look like a nice location, on a busy road, but the man knew how to keep that detail out of the picture. Due to that particular angle, there was no car in the picture. Also, the setting sun appeared in the picture beautifully.
5. Together under the umbrella
(Text continues below the photo) This couple had even arranged two wedding photographers so no moment would be missed out. They also brought along an assistant to lend a helping hand and to carry the equipment. But this young man was also allowed to create a fake rain shower above the bride and groom for the perfect picture.
6. Climbing the tree
(Text continues below the photo) This Asian couple wanted a nice shoot on the coast of the island where they came from. Together with a wedding photographer and two men who helped him, great pictures were shot. The photographer had to go to great lengths to make that happen but, with some help, he managed to climb a few meters up a tree for the photo of the bride and groom.
7. A soggy situation
(Text continues below the photo) The photographer thought it a good idea to take some photos of the bride and groom in action right in the rough seawater. And so the three went into the sea. After swallowing a lot of salt water for half an hour, he managed to take the pictures he wanted.
(Text continues below the photo) For some couples, there is no such thing as too crazy. Especially the bride pictured above wanted something original. And so she decided to go underwater. The woman had enough money, so hiring a team of divers was not a big deal. Using oxygen tanks, masks, and even some red drapery, beautiful pictures were taken.
9. On the floor
(Text continues below the photo) The reflecting, slippery floor of the government building made this the perfect place for an original picture. The bride and groom had to lie down on the floor, and the bride had to keep one of her legs in the air so that her dress would spread out nicely. The person who made the picture above, therefore, had quite a special perspective.
10. Wet feet
(Text continues below the photo) This is surely one of our favorites. It is a beautiful location, and the reflection of the amazing building in the water completes it perfectly. And, of course, the bride and groom look stunning, too. The photographer had to pull up his trousers and take off his shoes for this one.
(Text continues below the photo) This photographer wanted to take a photo above the bride and groom. The bride and the groom would lie together on the woman's enormous dress. It would be a romantic snapshot. The photographer had to stand right above the couple for this picture and he, therefore, had to rely on his assistants. They held onto his trousers so that he would not lose his balance...
12. Under the dress
(Text continues below the photo) It looks a bit strange, but this photographer (who apparently had to put on blue shorts for the occasion), wanted to crawl under the bride's dress for this picture. By photographing the couple from below, he indeed managed to capture a beautiful moment. Particularly when the sunlight began to shine through the dress, ending up right in the lens of the camera.
13. In the carousel
(Text continues below the photo) This couple had met each other at the amusement park in the carousel. And so they went back to the same place. Some beautiful pictures were taken from the seats swinging along at this attraction. It was not easy for the photographer, but he did have a lot of fun.
14. On the road
(Text continues below the photo) It was a rainy day. That did not stop the couple and their photography team from taking some pictures outdoors. It was decided that the middle of the road was a good location. It has to be said: This is again something different. It was not safe, it was creative. The mysterious and misty conditions, in particular, made it a special shoot.
