I love weddings, I mean who doesn’t. There is so much planning that goes into making it a fabulous one. Out of my personal experience in my wedding, I learnt that no matter how much you plan, plan and plan…on the d-day..you really don’t have the energy or the brain power to execute it.
After all the festivities done with, you are now moving on to clicking some amazing couple wedding photos. You are all beautiful and princess like in your dream lehenga/outfit and so is your groom. This is what you have been waiting for. The cameras are ready and so are your photographer and videographer. All you have to do is start posing to create lifelong memories.
But, after one or two shots…you’re out of ideas. Happens…happens to the best of us. No matter how much you stare at the Pinterest months in advance, in that moment…its altogether a different ball game. So, to make it easier for all you brides…because lets face it, grooms are least bothered about photos, looking good, posing and etc etc…I am listing down some easy props that you can use while getting your couple photography clicked.
#1 Fairy Lights
Mostly, you will find this already being provided by your decor guy. Just plan it out and make one section totally dream like lit up where you can go and click wedding photos in the evening. Makes for the perfect backdrop, and guaranteed you along with your guests will love this section and it will be a total hit !
Easily available on rent or for purchase in any antique frame shop, you can get these for as low as 100-200 bucks. But it makes for one of the most popular and versatile props to use for wedding photography. Use it for your couple photography as well as pics with your besties, this one prop can get you oodles of memories.
Umbrellas are all the rage in Indian Weddings and why not. You can do crazy number of things using a simple umbrella. From buying a colorful patterned umbrella to a whimsical one with some text written, plan out how you want to use one on your wedding. My favorite is the last one with flowers on the edges. Super cute isn’t it?
You want to be a cool bride and groom…want to click some seriously cool yet adorable pics together? Then aviators and big sunglasses is your answer. Almost everyone is opting for this prop in their weddings, but the tricky part is how you actually use to to click pics. From crazy poses, to whacky ones…go crazy on this one.
#5 Wedding Signs
This can easily can be made on your own prior to the wedding, I cannot stress enough on how good an idea it is to just thank all the guests, relatives and friends. You can easily put the picture in your thank you card. The best way is to click a picture and keep for later use. Similarly go ahead and make yourself Mr. to Mrs. wedding sign or anything else as well. Creativity is the key !
#6 Phul-jhaddi – [Sparklers, Fireworks]
You don’t want to spend a whole lot of fireworks, I get it. But if you still want the magic without burning an actual hole in your pocket then go ahead with phul-jhaddis. They are cheap, lots of fun and make for the perfect evening wedding prop. Either hand one to every soul in the wedding who can lit it up at the same time, or just use one or two for your solo couple wedding photography. The options are endless.
What is an Indian Wedding without flowers. Be it the bride-groom garlands or plucked out petals of marigold and rose, use it to click the best wedding photos you can have.
This is good to have when you have a day wedding. Some fun in the open wedding lawn with lots of balloons and your hubby by your side…its going to be a fun shoot. Think about it.
#9 Your friends phone
Instead of posing alone, you can get your man to pose with you…and this look will definitely make it to the cutest photo out there. Love the idea of using all your close friends to come and click a picture all at the same time. Genius isn’t it?
A reflection of the couple being clicked, its an easily available prop in any green room and you can pretty much use it in multiple ways to click photos of the two of you. The idea is to have as many different kinds of couple shots as possible. This can be one of the props you use for one of the pictures.
