Fact. I am a big fan of candid photography. I prefer natural looks of your wedding that really capture the spirit of your day. Now, while that is my preferred style, I do think it’s absolutely essential to have some posed photos, you’ll be bummed if you don’t have a couple. Okay, I don’t think that having a photo list 2 miles long is the way to go, it’s actually sort of insulting to your photographer. With that said, I don’t think it’s a bad idea to have a few set ups prepared for your photographer that will make pretty fabulous photos. Here are a few beautiful and fun photos that I think should definitely make your list!!!
Props. I loving using empty frames, umbrellas, your bouquet, etc to give your pictures a touch of whimsy. The frames are such a fun idea, and cheap and easy too!!!
Nature. This one is super easy. Step one, find nature. Step two, take picture. Told you it was easy. I like the idea of sitting down too. It looks very bohemian and so super cool.
Cutesy Couple. I love all of the adorable kissing photos out there. Especially the cute one with the disapproving flower girl. I also can resist a great shoe picture. I love the one pictured, the whole bridal party wore toms, blue toms. Super cute.

Basically, don’t be afraid to have a little fun and think ahead of time about a few photos you’d like to include. Don’t go overboard, but don’t limit yourself! This only happens once, we hope... ;)
