6 Cool Wedding Prompts
Do you know that Denmark is the easiest country in the world to get married?
Yes, you heard it right. Most of my couples who elope to Copenhagen are international. Only this year, I have had 50 elopes, and I am so grateful for all of them. 😊
I think that when it comes to working with couples, having them interact with each other, and being playful with each other in a genuine and fun way is a very important task that you have to do as a photographer. You’re there to take photos that tell their story, but you’re also there to offer a fun and memorable experience. An experience that they will never forget.
One of the most important things is to be prepared with Prompts for the couples. Imagine having a two-hour shoot but you end up with the same poses. That won't be ideal.
You can use prompts that are versatile and can allow your couples to interact with each other in a way that is true to who they are and what their relationship is like.
I also want to clarify that I don't offer prompt ideas to every couple I shoot with. Some clients are very energetic, extroverted, and happy, but you will also find clients who are shy and don't like to communicate or engage at all. I most probably wouldn’t give them outgoing prompts. Understanding your client is the most important thing during every process!- I am very good at understanding people's personalities, and this makes my life/work easier on how I should communicate with my client during the photoshoot. Understanding your client is so important! Let me share with you 5-6 prompts I created during my latest shoot and some detail photos from different weddings I shot. 🤍 1. Dream Together Looking away like you will have the brightest future ahead of you. This prompt gives the feeling of dreaming together. Finding a bridge helps a lot, creating all these emotions.
2. Walk Away There is a lot of walking in a photoshoot, so why not use that and create something beautiful without the couple even noticing it.
3. Stay Away and Look at Each-Other Most of my couples tend to stay too close to each other, and that is so cute. However, having a little distance and touching each other hands gives you the best intersecion and most clean photos.
4. Sit and Chill When I find a cute bench, oh, I definitely gonna use it. I like to play around with it as well. When I see a bench or cute chairs, I ask my couples to "sit and chill for a minute" - Is important that the couple relaxes for a few minutes and they forget that you are taking photos of them. It's important to capture their real emotions while they are talking with each other and being full of love.
5. Veil Prompts So many emotions you can create under the veil. When I took the photo below, we were almost at the end of the photoshoot. I told the couple I had an idea when they kissed each other but under the veil. I haven't experienced much with veils before, but sure is a thing I am gonna use in the future.
6. Detail Photos My favorite thing to do during the shoot is to capture some details shots, it can be hands, nails, flowers, legs, or all together. These little details complete the shoot. The photos below are from three different weddings I have done.
