Our couples and their guests love our tree swing! Located right near our ceremony and reception locations, it draws in guests of all ages, making it the perfect spot for photos. We’ve seen so many fun uses of our wedding swing over the years, and now we’re sharing our favorites to inspire your own wedding photos!
STIR UP SOME ROMANCE
Lauren & Jake snuggled up for this romantic shot on the swing at their summer wedding. Their modern and moody wedding was one of the most stunning of the year. See more photos here.
LET THE GROOMSMEN LOOSE
Any time you let a groom and his groomsmen loose near a swing, you’re bound to get some great photos. This one from Rachel and Justin’s wedding is one of our favorites! See more photos from their multi-cultural fall wedding.
DRESS UP THE SWING
Everyone else is dressed up, so why not the swing? When you’re talking to your florist, don’t overlook this opportunity for festive florals. We love the way Meghan and Henry, and Jessie and Eric, chose to give the swing a unique makeover for their big day.
MAKE SURE EVERYONE GETS A TURN
Traditionally, we see a lot of brides sit on the swing for portraits, but don’t be afraid to switch it up! Tanya and Jamie each took a turn pushing each other on the swing, resulting in this light-hearted photo series that really captures their personalities. See more photos from their modern fall wedding with alpacas.
INCLUDE THE WHOLE FAMILY
If your family includes kiddos, follow Yanira and Nathan’s lead to get down to their level for a sweet family photo!
MIX UP YOUR WEDDING PARTY PORTRAITS
In addition to your classic wedding party portraits, consider a fun alternative incorporating the swing, like Leslie and Brendon did. Especially if a member of your wedding party or family is unable to stand for long periods of time, the swing could be the perfect spot to keep the fun going!
GET THE KIDS IN ON IT
What’s cuter than kids on a swing? Not much! Lauren & Jake’s flower girls and ring bearers posed for portraits with the swing, and they look right in their element!
BRING OUT YOUR INNER MODEL
On your wedding day, photo time can feel like it lasts forever. So keep yourselves entertained by throwing in a wildcard like this oh-so-serious swing portrait with Chris and his groomsmen!
USE THE SWING AS YOUR BACKDROP
We love it when photographers think outside the box for backdrop ideas! Kacie’s colorful fall bouquet looks just right sitting on the rustic swing.
Okay, this one probably won’t apply to most weddings, but we couldn’t write this post without sharing our favorite swing photo of all time! Check out Kayla and Kevin’s wedding for more fun dinosaur photos.
We hope this list inspired your own special wedding swing photos! Next, check out our couples’ favorite wedding photo locations at 48 Fields.
