Brides and grooms work with wedding photographers to create the perfect shot.

Running from a ferocious Tyrannosaurus Rex, although unlikely, sounds like the last thing a bride and groom would want to be doing on their wedding day. But that's just what happened to one Louisiana couple and their wedding party, and the whole thing was caught on camera by their wedding photographer. (http://www.usatoday.com/story/news/nation/2013/05/31/la-mans-jurassic-wedding-photo-goes-viral/2376071/).

This type of creative and original idea for a wedding photo is part of the growing trend this wedding season. Brides and grooms are working one on one with their wedding photographers before the big day to provide him or her with inspired ideas for the kinds of images they want their wedding pictures to portray.

From conveying excitement as with the T-Rex photo to capturing the couple's passion for one another with dramatically planned poses, the traditional photos of the past where the couple stood at the front of the church and smiled are no longer adequate.

"Today's couples want something unique and special to represent their wedding day and their love," says Brett Reynolds, CEO of Wedding.com. "With social media and the Internet, there's tons of places for brides and grooms to gather ideas from to present to their photographers to either replicate or come up with something that conveys the same feeling they had when looking at the photo."

While the bride and groom want photos of themselves to stand out, they also want pictures of their wedding party to make a statement as well. Shots of the group jumping in the air or posing to form the word “LOVE” with their bodies make creative memories to add to the photo book. Other ideas gaining popularity include photos of the bride with her maid of honor jumping on the bed in excitement for the big day or goofy photos of the groom and his groomsmen revealing superhero emblems underneath their tuxes.

Getting creative with wedding photo poses not only jazzes up the wedding album, but also adds excitement to the actual photo shoot. Stiff smile-filled photo shoots can be boring for a wedding party that’s been waiting all day to get the reception started. Adding some fun shots can make the process seem much less tedious.

With a little imagination and collaboration with an inventive photographer, wedding photos can turn from ordinary to extraordinary and truly make memories that last a lifetime.
