Wedding Party Photo Ideas

Isabel Luna - 01/11/2022 - 0 comments

One of the most important considerations when thinking about photography for your wedding is what kind of photos you’d like taken. While the expert wedding photographers at Adventure Photos have plenty of ideas and suggestions to share, it’s worth exploring ahead of time to discover what wedding party poses and styles you like best. Do you prefer classic posed shots where everyone faces the camera, or do you like candid photos taken in the heat of the moment? Do you prefer your poses to be stylized and serious like a photoshoot, or do you want a more fun, playful vibe to your images? We’re happy to accommodate all these requests and everything in between!

The Boy Band Walk

This shot is all about fun and hamming it up for the camera! Have your groomsmen do a slow-motion walk like a boy band or have a group photo where everyone plays up the drama with serious faces (like on an album cover). See if you can keep a straight face between takes!

The Peek Behind

Have your bridesmaids stand in a line with the bride in the middle. While the bridesmaids face forward, the bride should look back over her shoulder in the direction of the camera for a sweet, intimate snapshot that captures the joyful mood.

Alternating Bridesmaids and Groomsmen

If you have an even number of bridesmaids and groomsmen, pair each of them off and take a photo that alternates from bridesmaids to groomsmen, with the bride and groom centerstage. It’s a fun twist on the traditional posed group shot.

The Getting Ready Celebration

Getting ready is half the fun! Capture you and your bridesmaids laughing and enjoying the process. For extra emphasis on the bride, have the bridesmaids wear matching robes in a vibrant color while the bride wears white.

The Classics

The classic posed wedding shots are classics for a reason—everyone loves them! Gather your wedding party and your loved ones for classic posed group shots that show you at their best and ensure that everyone you want photographed ends up in front of the camera.

Jump in the Air

It’s your wedding day—why not jump for joy? Line up your wedding party and take a group shot mid-air for a comical, whimsical photo guaranteed to make you smile. The bride and groom can join the fun, or alternatively, share a kiss for a sweet moment in between the chaos.

Pop the Champagne!

What’s more fun than popping the champagne? It’s time to celebrate, after all! Capture this moment either during the process of getting ready, or even upon your entrance as a couple following the ceremony. This makes for a beautiful candid photo, and old-time black-and-white photography adds a classy touch.

The Perfect Symmetry

This is a different take on the classic group photo where you line up the bridesmaids on the groom’s side and the groomsmen on the bride’s. It creates a cool color-blocking effect and symmetry on both sides, drawing the eye to the center where the happy bride and groom smile at the camera.
