It’s a special day, and you’ll want the photos you look back on to include everyone that is important to you, including children. Whether they are children or stepchildren of the bride and groom, brothers or sisters, or other relations, these young hearts bring a wonderful innocence to the occasion. For a photographer, children can present wonderful opportunities and special challenges to consider. Consider the below photo opportunities to make sure the children in your life find themselves represented well in your wedding pictures.
Barn or farm weddings continue to be popular venues but even indoors, there’s nothing more adorable than a small child being pulled by a bridesmaid or even the bride herself in a beautifully decorated wagon! Not only does this unique idea keep a very young child safe and happy for their close-up, but there are sure to be smiles all around which make for great pre-wedding guest shots.
Older children are often given the very important role of ring bearer or flower girl. This may be their first experience at a grownup event, and they take their task very seriously. Their shining faces walking the aisle are classic photo shots that provide memories for a lifetime. What if they have a slip-up? The best photography captures real moments, so minor hiccups like a trip or a dropped basket shouldn’t be ignored. They often are the pictures that everyone shares for years to come with a laugh and the fondest memory.
Some small children just aren’t happy unless they’re in a parent’s arms, so why fight it? Parents may opt to hold their child while saying vows or sharing the first dance, and these times can be captured as the first official image of the newly formed family. Today’s brides and grooms want and deserve unique photography that they’ll be able to curl up on the couch and look at over and over through their marriage. And when the kids are grown and come home to visit, they’ll love seeing how they looked on such an important day.
