As a wedding photographer, you need to keep an eye out for what is happening at all times so that you can creatively capture wedding moments that will never come by again. Scroll through these beautiful wedding photos that will leave you speechless to get some creative wedding photo shoot ideas.

1. Sealed With A Kiss

One of the most important wedding moments is the first kiss and all the kisses that come before and after that! Okay, you might want to give your couple some privacy, but a kissing shot is a must-have. This is a moment full of emotion that you want to make sure to get creative with. Think about your composition and framing when photographing a kiss so you can highlight the love and connection between the couple. You can use a wide-angle lens for close up or photos from a distance but for extra close up, step away and zoom in with a telephoto lens like a 70-200 at 200. The good part about capturing a kiss is that you can take an image right before they kiss and one right after. Those moments are priceless!
