Wedding photo shoot inspiration

Have you planned a moment with your wedding photographer on the big day when you leave the guests and the party for what it is, to have some nice shots of the two of you?

When you, like me, want to take all the parts of your wedding into the styling, think of the possibilities you have to make this photo shoot something super cool and unique!

Look for a spot near your wedding or party location, for example a beautiful meadow where you can create your own styled shoot. For example, you can dress up a nice table for the two of you, have a mini-picnic or even set up a tent:

Or use beautiful vintage furniture pieces to create a look that suits you. Like a couch or a dresser:

An idea that I really really like is to use a bed for your shoot! It may sound a bit far-fetched, but if you see the following pictures you will understand what I think is so beautiful about this unique idea. Moreover, as you can see, you do not even have to use a whole bed, only a headboard also gives a super effect:

Such a styled shoot requires the necessary search and drag work, if you choose to use a couch or bed for example, but the beautiful pictures you get here are, in my eyes, worth it! An idea that costs less effort, but also produces very nice pictures, is the use of a swing. The swing can be dressed as you want. Does this look super romantic?:

The possibilities of making the shoot something beautiful are endless! And when you marry in the middle of the city, you may not even have to get started with styling yourself, but you can use what you find in the area, such as a fun fair or a cool diner:

And if you've had enough time together during the shoot, you can of course also choose to use stylish wedding guests as decoration;)
