How to Master Underwater Wedding Photography?

Last Updated :

It seems there is no end to the creativity which inspires modern-day wedding photographers, and underwater photography is one of them. Many adventurous couples are ready to jump into a pool to get some unique wedding pictures underwater.

The element of daring and thinking out of the box is what attracts most couples to get their big day photographed underwater. So search for a pool near the church or the resort or wherever it is you are having your ceremony and get those wedding photos clicked in an exclusive manner.

1. The hardest part is to convince the important people of the wedding party to dive into the water in their best dress. So good luck with that. But if the bride and the groom are up for it, then your job is done!

2. Typical couple portraits can be recreated underwater. Find a nice shallow pool that receives a generous amount of natural light. Ask the newlyweds to show some love and the camera will do the rest of the work.

3. Use the wedding gown of the bride to give the photos a serene look. Bridal gowns are usually made of lightweight fabrics which flow easily in water. The results are serene and otherworldly as brides appear weightless and flawless, clothed in flowing ivory gowns.

4. Try to shoot during the day, as ambient light is better than artificial light at night. This might come in the way of wedding celebrations, which are typically held during the day. So plan ahead accordingly.

5. Advice the bride on getting waterproof makeup that won’t run when she is underwater. If she is getting an elaborate hairdo, then warn her in advance that it might come undone in water, so prepare accordingly.

6. Use props like flower bouquets, a large photo frame, a “Just Married” sign, a couple of water balloons et al. These will add variety to the wedding photos, other than the mundane drill which every wedding photographer goes through during a photoshoot.

7. Trash the dress – a tradition followed in many countries in which a bride’s wedding gown is destroyed as a sign of commitment, can also be achieved by taking some great underwater snaps of it. The advantage of doing that is you get your “dress trashing” photos, and you can dry clean the gown and keep it with you as well.

PicBackMan does exactly what it's supposed to. It's quick and efficient. It runs unobtrusively in the background and has done an excellent job of uploading more than 300GB of photos to 2 different services. After having lost a lot of personal memories to a hard drive crash, it's nice to know that my photos are safe in 2 different places.

LOVE this program! Works better than ANY other program out there that I have found to upload thousands of pictures WITH SUB-FOLDERS to SmugMug! Thank you so much for what you do! :) #happycustomer

I pointed PicBackMan at a directory structure, and next time I looked - all the photos had uploaded! Pretty cool. I use SmugMug and while I really like it, the process of creating directories in is pretty laborious when you need to make 80+ at a time. This was a breeze. Thank you!
