4 Ways To Personalize Your Wedding With Photos


Your wedding should be all about you and your partner. The wedding industry provides lots of options, but they are common to all brides. How can you personalize your day to make it all about you and your spouse? 

One way is to decorate with wedding and engagement photos of you two. Here are five great ways to use candid and lifestyle photos of the happy couple.

Cake. Printable and edible paper means your wedding cake can actually celebrate your love. Pick out some of your favorite pictures, favorite scenes, favorite locations, and other photos that show your particular love story. Work with your baker or caterer to determine how they can be used to decorate the main cake, the wedding cake, or even cupcakes for guests. 

Table Numbers. Are you using table numbers or escort cards? This is a great opportunity to use personal pictures of the bride and groom. You may want to frame a small photo and attach it to the table number. Or print the table number right on a photo of the couple to use as a table assignment. Escort cards can be printed in a similar way. Or, incorporate the photos into the table centerpieces. 

Greeting Decor. Do you lack creativity? Don't despair, because even the least artistic can create a beautiful framed table display to greet guests as they enter. Use a variety of frames — either all the same or using interesting variations — to frame a selection of photos. You can use photos from the engagement session, earlier couple photos, or pictures from the couple's time before they met. 

Use Oversize Photos. Modern technology provides many ways in which you can incorporate photos into your decor. Why not project oversize photos of the bride and groom — as children, teens, and adults — onto the walls of the venue? A slideshow of the couple's journey is a nice icebreaker to begin the wedding. Or, project special, black-and-white photos onto the ceiling during the couple's first dance. Any way you want to use large pictures creates simple decoration and tons of character.

How can you reflect your lifestyle and personality through photos as your wedding? The possibilities are nearly endless. It could be on a large scale with oversize projections or in small ways within the decor. Whatever your choices, start creating your perfect day by working with lifestyle wedding photography services today.

The Ocean and Photography: My Two Loves Combined

Ever since my parents allowed me to snap a few photos on their camera on vacation when I was a young child, I have loved photography. While we lived in the Midwest, I became hooked on taking photographs of the ocean and boats when we visited the Florida coast during one of our trips together. I found that just being near the ocean really made me happy, and after we returned home, I was able to "take the ocean with me" to experience that same feeling by taking photos of it. Being near the ocean is so calming and uplifting, but most people don't live near the coasts and don't get to experience its beauty every day. I now live by the ocean, so I decided to create a blog to share my tips about how you can best photograph the things you love.
