Think props or simply a point of difference that you can bring to your wedding that only the Groom and the Groomsmen share.  Props for the boys make the photo opportunities so much more interesting, fun filled and natural.  Let’s face it, the Groom and Groomsmen usually aren’t big fans of getting their photos taken. Let’s make it easier for them, and everyone else involved.

Giving the boys a point of difference and something to muck around with, allows for natural smiles and laughter which will generate more candid images on your wedding day.

The Bride and Bridesmaids usually carry their prop everywhere with them – the bouquets.  But what do the boys have?  Pockets, jackets, and if their lucky, maybe a beer? So think outside the square for your photo shoot after the ceremony.  Think of what represents the similarities you as the Groom may share with your boys (the Groomsmen) and what is going to give you those major chuckles and belly laughs naturally. The camera will love you for it!

Some ideas to get you started might include:

  • Cigars
  • Suspenders
  • Whiskey in crystal glasses
  • Crazy socks
  • Words on the bottom of the shoes
  • Sunglasses
  • Hats
  • Fake moustaches
  • Surf Boards
  • Bikes
  • Scooters
  • Couch / Furniture / Stools


I think you all get the drift.  It’s not hard to have fun with your boys when you think outside the box on your wedding day.

Sunshine Coast weddings and photography just got a little more fun and fabulous for the boys!
