Flowers are already a major part of most weddings, and even though it may seem simple, using a floral theme in your wedding portrait is actually a great idea. Flowers not only make your photos look striking, but also highlight the theme of love and tenderness.

That super excitement of having your partner in your little corner of the world forever.

6. Idea #6

If you are planning a wedding in 2020, you have two choices: to ignore the reality we are currently living in or to embrace it and make it part of your wedding portraits. Face masks have already become the new norm for us, so it makes total sense to include them in your special day.

#repost @caratsandcake ・・・ Masks as wedding day attire, planning in a pandemic, and microweddings, are all elements we didn’t forsee for this year of weddings. Thankfully, Patricia & Andre took this trio of trends and turned them into a memorable elopement in #joshuatree. Bold, and bright, contemporary florals and decor made this @deeleedesigns and @shawnayamamoto day one-of-a-kind.
