Car or yacht? The perfect props for your wedding day

When it comes to capturing beautiful and memorable photos during a wedding or pre-wedding shoot, the role of props cannot be overlooked. Props can significantly enhance the value of a photo shoot by adding a unique and eye-catching element. They can also aid in the telling of a story and the creation of a specific atmosphere that enhances the overall feel of the photographs.

There are many props to choose from, from oversized hats to sunglasses, but this is not the kind of props I will be talking about here! No, I have much larger props in mind, ones that will give your photoshoot a wow factor!

The Vintage Car

A car is a popular prop that can add an air of elegance and sophistication to a wedding shoot. Vintage cars, in particular, can provide a classic and timeless look to your photographs. A car can also be used to add an element of adventure and fun to your shoot. The car can serve as a backdrop or a prop for the couple to sit in or pose with. It can also be used to transport the couple to different locations for their shoot, adding to the overall experience.

Kelsey and Alex had their hearts set on a red Italian vintage Alfa Romeo for their Tuscany photo shoot. Unfortunately, the weather missed the memo and ruined the drone shots we had planned. But, hey, we’re not giving up! We turned the car into a stunning backdrop for their photos, which took them to the next level. I had no idea the two mothers had jumped into the car and taken a spin around the villa! I’m disappointed they didn’t warn me so I could take some photos, but… apparently, they sneaked out without telling anyone! It sounds like they had a great time!

The Sailing Boat

If a car sounds like a good idea, then you will love the next one! A sailing boat is another prop that can create a stunning and memorable effect in wedding photography. The open water and romantic atmosphere of a sailboat can provide a one-of-a-kind and unforgettable backdrop for a pre-wedding or engagement shoot. A sailboat can also add a sense of adventure and freedom to your photos. It can provide a sense of calm and serenity, which is ideal for capturing intimate and romantic moments between the couple.

It’s been a couple of years since this pre-wedding shoot, but the internet is still buzzing about it! And who can blame them? A couple on a sailing boat in the Mediterranean is the epitome of romance and adventure. It’s like a Nicholas Sparks novel coming to life (minus the tears).

A car and a sailing boat are just two of the many possible great examples of props that can add value to a pre-wedding or wedding shoot. These props can help to create a one-of-a-kind and memorable atmosphere, enhance the story told by the photos, and add a sense of adventure and excitement to the experience!
