Many couples select a seaside wedding because it is one of the most passionate areas of the world. A very popular destination wedding beach spot is Florida’s Anna Maria Island near the Gulf. A bride and groom could choose either an evening and sunset or early morning and sunrise for exchanging their vows. Both times are ideal for beach photography on Anna Maria Island to preserve the memory of their special day.
Perhaps a beach is a sentimental location for the couple; it could have been their first meeting on separate vacations with friends; their first vacation together or the day of his proposal.
Casual or Formal Weddings
Various couples who come to the beaches of Anna Maria Island to marry do so in a casual manner. They either have a small, intimate ceremony with a few guests or they have a larger affair but in both cases, there may be no suits and ties for the groom or groomsmen. The bride may opt for a sundress or other appropriate summer clothing. The entire wedding party will no doubt be shoeless because of the sand making its way into shoes; even sandals become a bother when sand is underfoot. Beach photography on Anna Maria Island will capture all the fun, seriousness and tender moments of the ceremony.
Photographs to Remember the Day
In terms of wedding photographs, a bride may want as many as she can get to preserve the day and see later, in pictures, what she might have missed during the excitement and emotions of the day. A bride and groom are always busy on their wedding day so they do not get to see everyone or everything that goes on. They are busy cutting cake, performing their first dance together, meeting and greeting people and sometimes opening gifts. Later, after the honeymoon, which usually happens at the destination, when they arrive at their new home, they will be able to enjoy their wedding all over again through photographs.
Holding a wedding on the beach lends itself to various photographic moments a photographer could take advantage of. If the ceremony is at sunset, the slow drooping sun makes a beautiful backdrop off to the side as the bride and groom look lovingly into one another’s eyes, the gentle waves lapping at their feet. A bride running on the beach, her long veil gently lifting behind her, and the groom chasing after her, both smiling and looking back would be a cute and fun photo.
Beach photography on Anna Maria Island could include something unique such as the release of thousands of butterflies by the wedding party and guests. There are a few companies in Anna Maria Island that provides this service so a couple can have something different at their wedding. The bride and groom surrounded by thousands of bright and beautiful butterflies could make a beautiful portrait, ideal for framing.
