For most photographers, going outside to take photographs is what keeps their creative fire going. With Covid-19 putting us all in lockdown, however, the wedding photography community has been compelled to find new ways to hone their skills. Ultimately, it’s all about composition, inspiration, and going by your gut feeling, right? Building on ND of Sanren Studio’s Zoom photoshoot experiment, Louis Gan of Louis Gan Photography got in on the action too, playing with lights and filters for his photos of Asther and Wilson.

Sunset and Mirrors at Nyanyi Beach Bali

Creative bridal portraits. Photo by Fire Wood and Earth. www.theweddingnotebook.com

You can tell from the couple’s body language that they had an absolutely amazing time shooting these bridal portraits. They are real and passionate, and we know that they – and their guests – will be looking through this album over and over again in the years to come. Thank you for these awesome shots, Fire, Wood & Earth!

Choosing to take their portraits at the famous black sand Nyanyi Beach was an easy choice, as they both enjoy the ocean immensely. It reminds them of God’s faithfulness, they say. They opted for a casual look in soft neutrals, their photographer did well to get those mirrors for the shoot. With blue skies above and the glistening sea behind them, the results are uber cool!

Jackie Yong Photography. www.theweddingnotebook.com

This is one of the most creative and moving bridal portrait themes we’ve ever seen. Forget the fancy gowns and suits, this couple decided to depict what they think their marriage will look like 50 years from now, as their photographer captured their quirks during a day out near Petaling Street, Kuala Lumpur. Everything about this is awesome – thank you, Jackie Yong Photography!

Elegant Shanghainese Bridal Portraits Taken at PS150

Photo by H+ Studio. www.theweddingnotebook.com

Having your bridal portraits look like movie stills from the golden age of Hong Kong cinema is such an elegant idea. When it comes to creating a classic Shanghai theme, the only thing we like more than Hong Kong star Wong Kar-Wai’s ‘In the Mood for Love’ is a spunky couple bold enough to pull it off. Suanne and Matthew rocked their Shanghainese set, shot in the quaint little bar PS150 in Kuala Lumpur’s Petaling Street. Thanks for these stunning shots, Gim Hong of H+ Studio!

The bar was the perfect venue, thanks to its unfinished brick walls, furniture, fittings, décor and glassware. There was no need for props; all the couple had to do was enjoy themselves and trust their photographer to do his magic. Might we add that we adore her qi pao and his casual unbuttoned shirt-and-coat look! Kudos to the team for a job well done.

Quirky and Unconventional Bridal Portraits Taken on Bintan Island, Indonesia

Photo by Terralogical. www.theweddingnotebook.com

These are some pretty big, albeit unorthodox, bridal portraits, we have to say! And frankly we did not expect any less from two visual communication designers who are crazy in love and about to tie the knot.

From perspective distortions to quirky art frames, these lovebirds wanted to defy the norms of bridal portraits, and that they did. It wasn’t all peculiar oddities (even though each photo looked like an art piece), the couple also took some conventional shots as backup, which were sweet and romantic – we love the ones of them by the beach and in the water, too! Many thanks to Govinda Rumi of Terralogical for this absolutely fascinating set of portraits.

Indie Portraits With A Playful Twist at The Great Madras Hotel Singapore

Photo by Bloc Memoire Photography. www.theweddingnotebook.com

Hands down the best indie game face we’ve seen in a pre-wedding album, this was a breath of fresh air indeed, and we’ll tell you why. Shot at the unconventional The Great Madras Hotel Singapore, the photos certainly reflected the couple’s desire to create something indie and playful, in a flavour that was truly their own. They were not afraid to challenge the norm, with their funky outfits and zero public displays of affection. Instead, they went for a somewhat “disconnected” feel, aiming for “nothing touchy, yet being emotionally connected”. “That,” said Bloc Memoire Photography, “was honesty to the core.”

Conceptual Bridal Portraits: The Pilot And The Tailor

Photo by Filming Art Cinematography. tp://www.theweddingnotebook.com

Sometimes you simply can’t put into words how much your love story takes your breath away, so these newlyweds took their bridal portraits and had them made into a movie. Using different photographs, this combination of cinematography and photography (adorably called “cinephotography”) took storytelling and bridal portraits to an inimitable space. The level of detail applied to the styling and costumes perfectly complemented the love these newlyweds have for each other.

Watch: “The Pilot & The Tailor”, starring Jocelyn and Louis. By Filming Art Cinematography.

Making A Splash With Underwater Bridal Portraits

Photo by Chester Kher Creations. www.theweddingnotebook.com

There are many ways for a couple to make a splash — this couple did it gorgeously, and literally, with an underwater shoot. We love the pops of colour, and especially how the bride’s red gown swirled like a mermaid’s tail in the water. We hope everything goes swimmingly well for this lovely couple! Many thanks to Chester Kher Creations for this.

Charley: “We just wanted to try something fresh, that was not too clichéd, and that did not require too much posing. We went ahead with this underwater idea without knowing what to expect. It was a challenging yet fulfilling experience!”

Glam Meets Grunge In This Gritty, Steamy Bridal Photoshoot

Photo by 50nfifty. www.theweddingnotebook.com

Gold sequins and black leather dance in a dingy corridor lit by green tinged fluorescent tubes. She is a gilded diva, he is a bad boy and rocker, and right here, in the grittiness of it all, they have eyes only for each other. Stylistically unconventional, this is a couple who is not afraid to live life with passion and verve. A huge shout out to 50nfifty Productions for sending along such a unique set of photos!

A Classic Hollywood Romance

Photo by Euhau Leong/LOORK. www.theweddingnotebook.com

Much like the happily-ever-afters of Hollywood films, this set of bridal portraits perfectly encapsulates the newlyweds’ mutual love for films and all things timeless. After all, a classic is a beauty that withstands the weather of time. With a dramatic red lip for the bride and dapper tailored suits for the groom, they were indeed a sight to behold, with no detail spared in their perfect homage to the golden age of Hollywood. Set in New Zealand with all its untouched beauty, we love the fashion choices (pearls and lace), floral prints and headgear. Many thanks to Euhau Leong of LOORK for capturing these amazing bridal portraits, and to Rong and Sky of TwoPeople Studio for such an inspiring concept.
