The day went perfectly – you exchanged your vows, survived the best man’s speech and danced the night away with your nearest and dearest – congratulations! Now that the formalities are over and your wedding shots are secure, why not take your dress and tux for one last spin for your post wedding shoot?
Like pre wedding shoots, post wedding shoots are more relaxed than the wedding shoot and an excuse to enjoy yourselves and let your personalities shine through. For some couples, after the pressure of the big day itself, it may come as a relief not to have to pose for an album of grandparent-friendly portraits and instead you can experiment, have fun and express yourself.
One of the couples that really exemplified this laid-back and fun attitude was Kaycee and Lucia, who chose to take their pre and post wedding shoots in natural surroundings. The use of props including the sunflower bouquet and matching yellow bicycle added interest and humour to the pictures, while the beautiful blue sky and green fields provided a backdrop that gave the entire shoot a fresh, outdoorsy feel. The movement and laughter in these pictures captures the excitement and happiness that the newlyweds were feeling.
After the outdoor shoot, it was back to the love nest for an indoor shoot full of wedding night anticipation. And we’ll leave it there!
