Confetti – who doesn’t love those amazing confetti pictures of pure joy? Well if you want that perfect shot, here are some tips to get everything just right!
1. Setting up the shot.
Plan on where your shot will be and lets frame you, the bride, with all your brides maids! You’ll be front and center – wearing white, and your girls will be around you dressed in either cute robes, pj’s or whatever attire you designate. Pro Tip – robes or PJ’s are a great bridesmaid gift and look perfect in these shots!
2. Talk about the reaction.
It is important that we let everyone know the process. I will place everyone, then, tell everyone the steps of the process. I will give you a cue such as counting to three then – you (the bride) will pop the confetti and everyone will cheer and celebrate! Knowing what comes next is important so no one is caught off guard! Let’s make sure you bridesmaids know what to do when the streamers fly!
Time to pop that confetti! On the count of 3 you’ll pop the confetti, everyone cheers, and I take like 50 pictures faster than you can blink to get that amazing fun filled image you’ve been dreaming of!
Now this shot is awesome because there are multiple colors and types of confetti – streamers AND little colored bits. Also this confetti popper is shaped like a champagne bottle – how cool right? You can find these on amazon HERE or at stores like party city or walmart. This has been my favorite confetti to use for pictures. because the pieces are colorful and large enough to show up! Some confetti can be too small without as much flying power!
Fun shots like these are what I look forward to on wedding days – all the little moments that make a lasting impact!
