The wedding industry has long been dominated by picture-perfect classic wedding photos. And it’s only recently that couples and wedding photographers have started experimenting with unique wedding photos that don’t usually fit the traditional style of wedding photography. Nowadays, couples are looking forward to celebrating their uniqueness, and so wedding photographers are always on the lookout to capture elements that make a photograph stand out. Whether it’s a hint of humor or unusual perspectives, we love when wedding photographers think out of the box. In this blog, we have put together a list of stunning images captured by some of our customers. Every photograph in this feature brings something new to the table and showcases wedding photos that are far from classic but are definitely unique.
Unique Wedding Photos Captured By ShootDotEdit Customers
1. Looyenga Photography
Silhouettes have a way to add magic to any photograph. These perfectly backlit moments can help photographers create some amazing wedding photos. And there are always different ways to make them special, as shown in this partially lit silhouette captured by Looyenga Photography.
2. Laibel Schwartz Photography
Clear shapes, bold outlines, and background lighting play a major role in getting those stunning silhouettes that just leave the viewer in awe. Just as in this image captured by Laibel Schwartz Photography. The bokeh in the photo adds to the wow element.
3. Robb McCormick Photography
Sunsets and sunrises often bring out the best silhouettes. They fill the background with gorgeous color variations of crimson, blue, and purple. It’s lovely how the couples are posed, and the fences act as a frame in this photograph by Robb McCormick.
A Hint Of Humor
4. Jorge Santiago Photography
“Fly me to the moon,” said the groom, and the bride clearly had the Superwoman veil for it. Adding a hint of humor to a simple photo is one of the easiest ways to make it stand out. It’s also a great way to leave the viewer with a smile on their face.
5. Michelle Walker Photography
This adorable dog seems to be head over heels in love with the bride. Including pets in wedding photographs can make for some unique, fun, and absolutely cute wedding photos. The playfulness our four-legged friends bring to the moment is unmatched!
Striking a pose mid-air is always fun – for the subjects and the photographer too! Jump shots are also something you can try out with your couples to get some unique wedding photos. Clearly, this couple was excited to try out this pose.
7. Brandi Allyse Photo
Who photobombed who? It’s hard to tell. Wedding shenanigans are a part of every wedding, and when captured, these shenanigans can make for many funny wedding photos (like this one).
8. Michael Mann Photography
Playing peek-a-boo with the sun can sometimes create such epic images. When done the right way, lens flare can enhance the photograph’s visual appeal and help shift the focus to the subject.
9. Salt and Pine Photography
The colors, the clouds, the couple, everything blends so perfectly in this image – creating such a breathtaking background. This capture by Salt and Pine Photography is truly a treat for the eyes.
10. Photography by Orlando
Ever found a bride in a more unusual setting? We bet not! With the sunlight artistically gushing through the window, the bride’s pose, and the chairs, Photography by Orlando created a brilliant piece of art.
11. Michael Mann Photography
What a unique way to capture the gown! The black and white scheme and the birds hovering in the sky almost give a dark mood to the image. Can you feel it too?
12. Erin Morrison Photography
We love how the dark brown shades of the surroundings and the place highlight the bride and her wedding dress beautifully.
13. Sierra Solis Photography
We can’t tell what’s more fascinating – the way this bride is pulling off this stylish fedora or the way the reflections blend with each other. Either way – it’s absolutely gorgeous!
Sometimes letting your imagination run wild can yield stunning results. And this image is proof of that!
15. Robb McCormick Photography
The best shots are sometimes found in the most unusual places! Like this simple but also a complex image of the couple. It is one of the most unique bride and groom wedding photos we’ve come across.
16. Brian Bossany Photography
To take those over-the-top photographs, sometimes you gotta do what you gotta do! (As long your couples are on board, of course).
17. Diane Nicole Photography
When done right, the double exposure technique can help you take some truly amazing pictures. And the lovely overlays in this image by Diane Nicole Photography add a beautiful effect.
18. Michelle Walker Photography
This image by Michelle Walker Photography takes the couple away from the mainstream setting of wedding photographs and still manages to make it look amazing. Now, that’s art!
19. Taylor Kemp Photography
Capturing the carnival carousel in motion as the couple stays still works as an excellent frame for this photograph taken by Taylor Kemp Photography.
20. Jelger and Tanja
What an interesting setting and what a way to create unforgettable wedding pictures! The iconic view of the lush tropical landscape adds a unique touch to the image.
21. Brian Bossany Photography
Experimenting with lighting can take simple wedding photos to a whole new level. It’s just incredible how the lens flare creates the halo effect in this image captured by Brian Bossany.
22. Salt and Pine Photography
Sometimes, posing your subject out in the open, waiting for the perfect time, and letting the sunset work its magic really pays off. We can’t stop staring at the beautiful blend of the red and blue hues in this photograph!
23. Looyenga Photography
We love how the golden hue dominates the backdrop and creates an airy and dreamy atmosphere in this image taken by Looyenga Photography. No wonder golden hour is most photographers’ happy hour!
Caught in Rain & Snow
24. Photography by Orlando
Photographing a wedding as it snows has its fair share of perks and challenges. But in this masterpiece, Photography by Orlando is clearly showing off the fact that he knows how to work with nature.
25. Jorge Santiago Photography
Jorge Santiago Photography sure knows how to create stunning photographs in the rain. This image is yet another example of how paradise doesn’t always have to be tropical.
26. Love by Joe Mac
Wow! The umbrella as a prop, the couple’s pose, and the backlit raindrops – there are so many things in play that are making this image by Love by Joe Mac visual artistry.
