As wedding photographers, we captured so many kisses on the Big days. Here are some really sweet kisses that we would share with our brides-to-be for photo inspiration. But wedding kisses need to be candid and genuine never to be overly posed.
Some tips for camera-friendly kisses:
A. Stand or sit relatively close to each other but not too close, kiss politely yet passionately.
B. Both hands need to interact with each other instead of dangling.
C. Kiss for a few seconds for photographers to capture - thank you for doing that :)
D. Follow your heart - don't over pose, a comfortable and natural kiss will be beautiful.
E. Close your eyes to make the photo more touching.
1. You Are My World
This is one of the best romantic wedding photo ideas we have ever come across which demonstrated the essence of true love. When the officiant announced "you may kiss the Bride," the groom kissed the bride lovingly and was holding her so tight - we knew that from that moment he never wanted to let her go.
2. Lips on Her Cheek
This one is so cute that she is like his sugar for life. Find a clean or bright background, preferably under soft lighting before sunset. Have the groom kiss the cheek in front of the camera, slightly and subtly. Only the bride looks at the camera.
In this photo, we did something creative. We have the bride and the groom kiss while a dip down. The groom held the bride on her back and bottom and kissed her enthusiastically. Black-and-white edit brought more classy and intimate effect for this kiss.
4. By the Sea
On the wedding day, if the venue is close to a beach, go there and snap a few shots. Beach is one of the sweetest scenes for romantic couple shots. Close the eyes, kiss on the lips and listen to the sea.
5. Love of Silhouette
A good silhouette shot makes this photo even more romantic. The height difference between the groom and the bride was so cute. Don't miss a shot like this by sunset.
6. Kiss With Friends and Families
We had the couple stand in the middle of the crowd. Bridesmaids and Groomsmen saw them kiss and made faces. This was very creative and fun.
7. Hand-in-hand Kissing
Very sweet posture - kiss the bride while holding her hands. They delivered a strong message of love in this picture.
8. On The Cliff
After the ceremony, we drove to the beach. Use back lighting of the sunset and have the ocean-view as the background. The groom held the bride on her should, stood close enough and gave her a kiss. Both closed their eyes and felt that romantic moment of life.
9. Champagne Kiss
Fill the champagne glasses, play with the sands, kiss like no one else is around.
10. Under the Veil
Do something like this if you have a long veil! The playful and romantic shot was taken under the veil. This creative idea is to even have the photographer under the veil too. The veil softened the background so the two of you popped out in the picture. Photographer can easily capture the mood - the world of two love birds - stunning and sweet.
