Unleash Your Creativity

Playful props are not just for photo booths

There is no better way to create charming, fun and romantic wedding photos than to live those feelings in the moment. Stylish props serve as a creative backdrop to carry the personality and flow of your pre-ceremony shoot. Express your hobbies or showcase your love story while allowing for spontaneity and freedom to flow. Plus, it’s fun to kickstart the celebration with your friends and
family in style.

What props would add flavor to your pre-wedding shoot? Dreaming and frivolity are not only allowed but rewarded. Is your style quirky, luxurious, classic, outdoorsy? Roll up, boat up or show up in a way that celebrates you. Your photos will look like you are having the best day ever — because you are. ∞

“A surfer accidentally walked into our wedding photos on the beach and held up his board as a prop around the wedding party. It turned out to be my favorite photo from our wedding!” –—Jenna, former bride

Car: Capture your timeless love story with a classic car.
Bicycle: Showcase your love of the outdoors with a tandem bike.
Boat: Pontoon, sail or paddle your way to the aisle.

Umbrella: Posh people with parasols parade around the party or escape a drizzle.
Sparklers: Create a sparkler tunnel for the your introduction or nighttime exit.
Scooter: In addition to gliding around and making a scene, a scooter is just plain fun.
Balloons: In an arch, along the wall, tied with photos; the classic balloon never fails.

Bubbles: A simple bubble machine adds endless fun and youthful to your day.
Pets: Your best little buddy wants to be with you during your special day. Make it a pet party and they will love you forever (either way).
