Bride and groom portraits
Bride and groom portraits are one of the most important elements of any wedding photography - they’re the perfect way to capture your unique love for one another.
As part of our preparation for your big day, I’ll be taking the time to get to know you as a couple. I want to learn about your story so that I can encapsulate that magical spark in every single photo, from the very first look between a new bride and groom, to a selection of natural and posed portraits in your location of choice. Your bride and groom photos are the images that you’re most likely to display in your home, on your social media, when telling your children and grandchildren about your wedding day, and when reminiscing with each other for many years to come.
While every part of a bride and groom’s wedding day is important, most newlyweds find that between getting ready, greeting family and friends, and partaking in the many aspects of a traditional ceremony and reception, they barely have any time together. There’s usually very little opportunity for you to simply spend a moment with your new spouse and take in the magic that’s unfolding all around you. My bride and groom portrait photography aims to capture that moment - a look of love, a meaningful embrace, or even a private champagne toast for two, away from the hustle and bustle of the crowd.
Of course, the bride and groom portraits also include individual shots of both the husband- and wife-to-be, typically during and after the ‘getting ready’ segment of their wedding day. These tend to be especially important for the bride, who has usually spent the best part of her morning in a chair with hair and makeup artists fawning over her! Individual bridal portraits are the perfect opportunity for the bride to enjoy being the centre of attention, show off her stunning dress and accessories, and bask in the excitement of her impending nuptials. It’s also a great chance for the groom to show how well he can scrub up!
Your wedding couple photos should reflect your authentic and unique bond, while also expressing your individual personalities. The best wedding couple images will incorporate both classic settings and timeless poses with quirky and individual details to truly capture your magic as a couple.
