When thinking of wedding ideas you always want to consider wedding photo ideas. If you’re one of those people who seem to always have the “fake” smile when in front of a camera you may want alternatives to the typical portraits. Being a wedding photographer I’ve come across a handful of people with this same issue and my answer is  always “let’s do something.” Seriously, not like lets do something as in lets fix it, like fix your face haha just kidding…no no, as in let’s actually do something that would allow you to feel relaxed and enjoy having your picture taken. So, here are some ideas that you can plan on doing instead of traditional portraits.
