What Are Some Wedding Party Photo Ideas?


Lots of pictures will be taken of you and your wedding party on your wedding day. You took the time to choose who will be standing by your side on your wedding day, so why not take the time to think about the kind of pictures you want with them? Our wedding photographers have shot many weddings in Kearney, Grand Island, Hastings, and surrounding areas and have compiled some of our favorite wedding party photos. Check them out below.

The Morning Of…

On the beginning parts of your wedding day, they are usually spent getting ready with your chosen wedding party. Whether you have bridesmaids or groomsmen, our wedding photographers have some ideas for some pictures you may want with them.

Getting Ready

Some of our favorite images include bridesmaids helping the bride with the finishing touches on her dress. One of them includes putting the veil on, or the bridesmaids sitting around the bride and fanning out her trail and veil. These shots work really well if they have dramatic lengths. Find out which veil length suits your dress the most with this blog!

Groomsmen and the groom also have some cool shots their wedding photographer can shoot. While they get ready, casual shots of them putting on ties or bowties, cufflinks, and throwing that jacket on top will go a long way. There’s something about those getting ready photos that create classic photos to set the tone for the rest of a wedding day album.

Pop Some Bubbly

One of the things that go well with celebrations is drinks! Have mimosas, beers, or mocktails for you and your wedding party. They make for some fun pictures. Especially when you pop open a champagne bottle!

After The Ceremony

If you’re planning on not seeing your other half until the ceremony, then you’re also probably planning on getting photos with the whole wedding party after. You can even have these photos taken prior to the ceremony to have more time with your guests during the reception!

Traditional Wedding Party Photos

We’ll start off with some of the most common pictures we take. To ease into all of the picture taking, these are the photos we suggest. Have your wedding party split by standing on the respective sides of you and your partner.

After those, they can mix in together to create a more natural shot. This is when they can hype you two up and create magical moments. Soon after, you can take individual photos with your respective parties.

A Candid Stroll

Next is the candid stroll. This works really well if you’re having your wedding party photos outside. Have your Kearney, NE wedding photographer take pictures of you and your wedding as they walk towards the camera. Flowing dresses and hair add stunning movement to the images when you look back on them!

Blur in Motion

One of the more unique photos we’ve seen is a blur in motion. When you and your fiance are together, it’s easy to feel like you’re the only ones in the room as the world races past you. This kind of picture visually captures that feeling. Have your wedding party run around you and your fiance as you two stand still in the middle. The turnout is worth a thousand words.
