The definition of marriage has changed over the last few years, with couples and families becoming more diverse and interesting as time goes on. So it only makes sense that wedding photography would also become more fun and original. From post-wedding parasailing to ‘trash the dress’ photography, here is our list of the 20 craziest and most creative wedding photoshoots we could find!
Trash the dress photography
Trash the dress photography – aka where a bride destroys her dress in the name of a unique wedding album – is popular these days and has produced some very interesting results! The trend was started by Las Vegas-based photographer John Michael Cooper in 2005, after he became tired of creating the same old wedding photos. He said of his innovative concept: “In fashion photography, they often put really pretty people in very ugly places. I’m applying that technique to weddings.” The idea is to be as inventive as possible, and there are plenty of brides that have risen to the challenge.
Like this one.
And these guys.
And the first-ever trash the dress photo.
Horror fans do the best wedding photoshoots. Don’t believe me? Then take a look at these wonderfully weird examples…
Yes, that IS a guy in a Scream mask in the background.
Fan girls (and boys)
Why anybody would want a Game of Thrones themed wedding after seeing what usually happens to people who get married on the show is beyond me, but this couple did it anyway.
In fact, recreating pop cultural phenomenons seems to be a popular.
Like this awesome Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles themed shoot.
And this X-Men loving duo.
And this pair who think Breaking Bad just screams ‘weddings’.
And this couple who want to live long and prosper.
And finally, the just plain mental.
