So take a look at all the beautiful wedding picture ideas we have here for you.
Wedding Photo Booths and Video Booths
Some brides are allocating a corner in the wedding venue for the guests to have their photos taken with photo-booth props. And other brides are opting for few signs from the photobooth to use them in their wedding portrait session. In either case, make sure you don’t overdo this and make all your wedding photos in photo booth style.

With the Selfie trend taking over the world, almost every bride and groom take a selfie during their wedding day nowadays. It would be great to have spontaneous moments like these documented.
Casual Family Group Shot
These days people are enjoying casual and spontaneous photos more than those very formal ones. I’m not saying you can’t take formal wedding pictures, it is up to you and your groom to choose the style of wedding pictures you want. Those laid back pictures will be fun and wonderful looking back at your wedding pictures, so why not have a mix of both?

To complement a vintage wedding theme, you must consider vintage photography and ask your wedding photographer to produce some of your wedding photographs in a vintage style.
Here is what you need to know:
- You don’t need to edit every single photo taken at the wedding to give it a vintage feel. Not all photos will look good as vintage.
- Select a variety of photos: Some of the two of you, and others of you with your family and friends, as well as pictures of the setup and wedding theme.
- If you have a digital copy of your photos, you can apply the vintage effect on them yourself. You can use Photoshop or any other software or application. View the tutorials and give it a shot.
- If you are posting some of your own photos taken by your smart-phone, use Instagram to add vintage filters.
- Keep the original photos in case you wanted to go back to their original setting.
