6 Easy Prop Ideas for a Whimsical Wedding Photoshoot

What most couples would do for their wedding photoshoot is to hop down to a few places with beautiful scenes and strike a few poses in front of the famous sights. What they might end up with is a typical collection of wedding photos – a couple in a gown and suit, add something in the background that provides a hint of the location.

Beaches still look like beaches no matter where you go, same goes for forest paths surrounded by a bunch of green foliage. Sometimes, the trick to adding a unique touch is just to bring along a little something that can add an untold story to your pictures.

That’s why we have gathered a few fuss-free prop ideas for that additional sprinkle of whimsy in your wedding photos.

1. Coloured Smoke Bombs

Smoke bombs are a fun way to add a splash of colour to an otherwise typical scene. The vivid colours of the smoke stand out especially well in a forest setting with dark greenery in the background. Don’t our couples look like they are walking through the enchanted forest in Alice in Wonderland?

2. Sparklers

These mini fireworks add the perfect sprinkle of wonder in a sunset shoot. The falling sparks almost look like fairy dust, accentuating the orange and pink and glow of dusk light.

Fairylights are another treasure for dusk or night shoots. Wrap the lights around the both of you, or hold them up around you, these man-made fireflies create a warm mystical glow that only surrounds the two of you.
