Props add a little whimsy, capture your personality and put couples at ease during a wedding photo session. Here are several ideas for props to incorporate into your Jersey Shore wedding photo session:

Colorful Beach Ball: The multi-colored beach ball is known worldwide as an icon representing the beach. Toss it in the air back and forth post-ceremony for a little playfulness at your beach photo session. Oh--and be nice! This is not dodgeball.
Fly A Kite: Revisit your childhood and take to the sky, surf and sand on your special day with a kite. Many Jersey Shore town shops sell a variety of kites from the traditional kite to animals shapes, fish and more. Grab the string and your partner's hand and go! Let your Philadelphia area wedding photographer capture the rest.

Surf Boards or Boogie Boards: Leave your wetsuit at home and don your bridal best for a shot with your surf board. Or, jump on the board with your groom to catch a virtual wave on the sand.
Large Wooden Ampersand or Initials: Visit your local crafts store or Etsy for a jumbo ampersand, initials or chalkboard sign to place between you both. Signage is always a good photo prop option.
Parasols: Parasols are a must. Not only do they provide some sun protection but they add such elegance to your Jersey Shore wedding photos. Select parasols in your wedding colors or crisp white or buttercream.
The Ultimate Props: If you have the right connections, a lifeboat secured on the sand captures the essence of the shore. Day or dusk, a wooden lifeguard stand is the ideal backdrop against the dunes for a Jersey Shore wedding photo. Another fun idea, if you can swing it--a red chase couch! It really juxtaposes the casual beach setting with semi-formal furniture to create a unique look for photos.
