Photographing Newlyweds in Bed: A Wedding Trend

Steaming Showers and Rumpled Sheets

On the back of a tragic accident in which a Quebec woman died while being photographed in her wedding gown soon after getting married—a ritual known as 'trash the dress'—comes another controversial trend in wedding photography as reported by the NY Daily News: being snapped the Morning After the Night Before. 

That's right, forget those rigid cake-cutting photos. Many of today's freshest brides and grooms are opting something a little more, shall we say, candid. Wedding photographers will come into your boudoir after the fact, and shoot black and whites of steaming showers and rumpled sheets. 

“We do it very sexy and implied,” said Michelle Jonné, a 34-year-old New Jersey-based photographer who charges about $650 for the newlywed bed photo shoots, according to the article.

The collections are undeniably stylish, as Jonné gets her inspiration from sultry Armani ads, capturing the couple in "various stages of undress." 

“When you get married, you’re in the best shape of your life and why not have these memories,” said past client, New Jersey PR exec, 38, Inna Shamis, who agreed to be filmed in the shower with her husband. She later posted the pics on Facebook and in due time plans to share them with her kids.

Hm, something tells me that's not exactly one for the mantle...

Should wedding photos be raunchy or reserved? Would you be comfortable rolling around in your underwear and showing off your sex hair to a photographer?
