3 Unique Halloween Wedding Photo Ideas


One of the most memorable parts of a wedding are the photos taken. If you have a Halloween wedding planned, you have the opportunity to create unique photos that capture both romance and the spirit of the holiday. When you hire a photographer, you can plan out some of your ideas and the best times to shoot the photos.

Check out some ideas you can use and add your own style to.

1. Pumpkin Heads

A traditional bride and groom portrait is ideal, but what if you replaced the heads of the couple with pumpkins? With a little maneuvering and photography tricks, you could pose and make it seem like a pumpkin is in place of the head. If the photographer does post-processing, then they could edit pumpkins right over your head. 

You could bring real pumpkins and positions them to look like they are on the heads of the bride and groom. Someone could hold the pumpkins in front of the faces and edit out the hands that hold them up. A photographer's vision will help the design come to life and make the effect look the best.

2. The Spooky Wedding Officiant

Create a fake wedding ceremony with some fun novelties. A bride and groom can pose and create fun wedding moments with a spooky wedding officiant proceeding over the staged ceremony. For example, you can enlist a family member or friend to dress up as an iconic horror movie character like Michael Myers or Freddy Krueger.

The person could do fun poses as a bride and groom look on terrified. Along with horror movie characters, you and your partner could pose with classic horror movie monsters or a person dressed up as a zombie. These pictures are ideal for sharing on social media and will create fun visuals to display in your home.

3. Halloween Effects

Add some moodiness to your photos with special Halloween effects. Many photographers like to shoot at dusk to capture the best lighting at golden hour. The low sunlight also adds a spooky effect to photos. Bring some props and extras along to enhance the pictures. For example, a fog machine adds a light layer of smoke and creates a fun spooky effect with the light.

Other props include Halloween designs like spider webs, skeletons, or fake gravestones. A photographer will help stage the designs and find the best locations at your wedding venue to take the pictures.

Take some time to brainstorm designs and come with unique picture ideas you can capture on your wedding day.

Good Photos Preserve Great Memories

When I was a child, it seemed like my parents never stopped taking photos of me and my brothers. I actually began to hide every time they got the camera out. When I moved out on my own, I vowed to never own a camera. I ended up purchasing a cell phone that had one, and after playing around with it a little, I learned how much fun it was to take photos! I loved it so much I went to school to learn how to be a professional photographer, and I enjoy every minute of my job. Just the other day, I took a look at all of my family's old photos and, I have to admit, I am so glad my parents took them! I have a little spare time to fill, so I decided to start a blog to share my photography tips! Come back often!
