Great Photos With Parents

Great Photos With Parents

Wedding photos with parents used to be traditional photos of the bride flanked in either side by her mother and father, with the groom in the same pose with his parents, and then the couple with each set of parents and then with all parents. If you like the classic parent poses, by all means keep them on your Must Get wedding photography wishlist, but consider some of these new options, suggested by the top NJ wedding photographers, to get more natural-looking photos that you’ll be more likely to frame and display:

  • The bride kissing her mom or dad on the cheek
  • The bride’s dad taking her hand to help her up a stair
  • The groom taking his mom by the hand
  • The bride and groom with both sets of parents, including step-parents in a stylized shot with some people sitting and some standing
  • A photo from behind the wedding couple and their parents, as they look out over a scenic vista or their wedding gardens
  • The wedding couple and their parents walking together on the wedding grounds
  • A reflection shot from the wedding gardens pond or lake, showing the couple with their parents
  • The wedding couple and their parents raising champagne glasses in a toast
  • Everyone eating wedding cake together (or a cultural wedding food)
  • The bride hugging her seated parents from behind as the groom smiles from the side (and the same shot with the groom hugging his parents, with the bride looking on, smiling) Read more…
