The other ones I didn't want taken were 'mock' shots. Only because I would look back and think "that isn't when we really cut our cake, that isn't our real wedding waltz"

I agree here Leoni. I was looking through the wedding album of a friend and we came to the photo of the cake cutting and she said "it wasn't the real cut, we just posed for the photo" and I thought 'well, what was the point then?'. You will always look back at that photo and know it wasn't real. I'd prefer not to have it rather than a fake one.

I mentioned this to my photographer and she looked a bit shocked. I guess she didn't see anything wrong with it.

i also like whippy's comment:

I love seeing people just interacting with each other and seeing the expressions on their faces.


A great photographer can capture an emotion between a couple and which I've noticed is often quite difficult to photograph. But if you can see the love between the bride and groom staring back at you from the photograph, it doesn't matter what the pose is because the emotion has been immortalised. Well, that's just my view anyway. smile.gif

I love candid shots, where you don't even know the photo is being taken.

I have to say i love these photos as well.I'm planning on getting some candid style photos of us in a golfbuggy as we're having our wedding at a golfclub.I'm also thinking of having a mock golf game for some offthe photos.

I also love the photos of both the bride & groom underneath the brides veil,whether they're kissing or not.They just look so romantic to me.

Sadly i won't be able to do this 1 but i also love the staircase photos with the brides train flowing down the stairs behind her.

I also love the shots of the bride sitting down on the floor/grass with the skirt of her dress flowing all around her.

I also love the photos of the flowers with the shoes & jewellery.

I'm not too keen on having photos of my underwear or of me putting on my dress.

I was bridesmaid once, and the photographers made us do this shot where the bride and groom were sitting on a park bench, and the bridesmaids had to gather around the groom and put their hands inside his shirt whilst looking seductive (yuk! especially when the groom was my brother!) ... and the groomsmen had to sit at the bride's feet and lift her dress as if to perve at her.... asset (sorry didn't know how to put it any other way)!

OMG!! PMSL!! That's just horrible!

I have to say, our photographer never asked us to do anything, except when we were getting ready and he asked me to sit, or when we did parent's and family's portraits. And they're the photos I like the least! We have so many candid shots that I didn't even know they were taking.

I hate photos where the photographers make the couple do certain things, and you can completely tell that it's posed and fake.. like leaning over the car in a certain way. Yuk!

The worst wedding photo I saw I was actully in!
I was a bridesmaid, and in the photo the each bridesmaid was made to get "piggy-backed" by each groomsmen (who we only met that day!) while waving our bouquets up in the air and sporting oh so cheesy (but noticeably strained) smiles. We were gathered around the bride who was sitting on the grooms knee who was kneeling on the ground. They both had their hands up in the air a' la Broadway Musical finale style.

i have to laugh at this! cos my FSIL had these types of photos (and Video footage) for her wedding and i cant stand it!!! i just think its so tacky and uncomfortable!!!

one photo that i dont personally like is the one of the brides body facing to the side and then her head looking at the camera. and the flowers facing the front with their boobs pointed out!!!
i know others like it but i've seen it so many times and i cant stand it!!!

Miss Polly I adore the photos you have lol... I really like the one of you standing back to the camera with your arms holding the other shoulder with a slight face turn. If you dont mind I would love to try this shot with my photographer!!!!

I adore the photos prior to ceremony. I adore ones with guys drinking and playing pool. I love ones of the bride with he back to camera showing dress shot and slight turn of the head. I ABSOLUTELY adore the ones of brides on the floor dress all puffed up putting shoes on. I love all of this but only when it looks natural and not completely posed. I think most Gold coast photographers were fantastic a couple of the cheaper ones (unfortunately) really lacked the passion, beauty and interest in taking photos.

Pictures have to capture the love and the moment. When they do then all of them are good.

I cannot imagine this any good because no one wanted to do it besides couple!!!

My photographer does a pretty cool shot of coming across the bridge at our venue jumping in the air. I have seen others and some dont look crash hot. But our photographer has a great artistic view on life.

Sorry just had to add... I dont think a wedding is a time to be overly seductive in pictures. Some of these stories are just plain nasty.

I think a bride and her bridesmaids should look beautiful, classy and innocent not tacky and sexual.

I'm currently looking for a photographer for my wedding and it's turning into a bit of a nightmare!! We arn't getting married in Sydney which has already reduced the number of photographers.

I have noticed like others that the same pictures appear with photographers over and over. I love posed photos if they're done right but, I also love natural ones and finding a photographer who has a good balance of both and is willing to travel is proving to be difficult. I agree with so many of you about the photos you don't like (especially the one mentioned with the bridesmaids putting their hands on the groom and the groomsmen pretending to look up her dress - how tacky!!).

1) Walking in a line - I like this, especially when it is down a light lit or tree lined path. I'll be including this.

2) Walking in a line waving - yep I'll pass on this one too

3) Close ups of brides looking at photos of their fiance - I don't understand this one? Do you mean staged reflection moment looking at a framed pic? Weird have never seen this one. I don't like staged photos full stop.

4) FAKE E6 - I have no idea what this means so means nothing to me

4) FAKE B&W to make up for bad colour - have never noticed

5) i really hate those photos that you see in an album that are all the same. - don't know what this one means?

6) Group bridal party photos in semi circles - not a fan of overly posed shots either

7) Bridesmaids in semi circles leaning over for that cleavage shot. - Ditto as above.

Personally I'm not a fan of the bride and groom being snapped draping themselves over their bridal car.

I like natural photos. My mission is to find a photographer that will happily snap away. I'm happy for them to make subtle suggestions on posture etc but am not interested in being told to turn my head to the left, take a step to the side yada yada

I hate the half dress bride shot (for me anyway) I have been very clear to my photogragher to not even attempt to take any like that. I was BM for my best friend and it was on a 40 degree day and we were wearing full lenght dresses so he got all these photos (mainly of me) sitting with my dress scrunched up and looking pee off. I was really unimpressed. Also photos of people smoking. He also got some NICE shots of me witha fag hanging out of my mouth. It looked gross

I love the unposed ones and the ones of the b and G doing a little kiss. I also love the shots of someone in the forground and the other in the backgound. My friend had a shot like this at luna park and it looked great.

SuzieM don't take this the wrong way but since smoking is so gross full stop have you thought about quitting?

As for photo styles, I love candid shots. I want photos where Stephen and I look natural. And we'll only have one location I think. The posed shots will be almost non existent except for family photos.

I love the photos of the little things: flowers, OOS books, shoes etc.

The best photo I have seen from a wedding was actually a pair of photos I saw recently, taken by a wonderful Melbourne photographer. One one page of the album she had a candid shot of the B & G emerging from the church and on the opposite page of the album she had a shot of all the relos trying to get their cameras out to take a photo of the B & G. It was a really candid shot and such a genuine reflection of the guests on the day.

I detest smoking personally but I think that comment was a bit uncalled for!

SuzieM, I know what you mean, there is a difference between having a smoke and being photographed having a smoke.... I don't think that the photographer was thinking when he took those pics, and I'm sure the bride wasn't too impressed with the photographer's choice of timing either.

hehe yeah i think most smokers do realise its a stupid disgusting habit. and a lot want to quit - its just tough because, ya know, nicotine's addictive.

it's like most obese people realise their weight is endangering their health. they don't need to be told they're fat - they usually know better than anyone how difficult it is for them to squeeze into their jeans.
