(Newser) – Forget the usual shots of couples smiling on the grass and cutting the wedding cake. A new breed of bridal photographer is capturing newlyweds "the morning after" in various states of intimate embrace, the New York Daily News reports. Couples who agree to the shoots are often snapped in bed (in whatever they're wearing—or not wearing) or sharing sexy showers.

“We do it very sexy and implied,” says photographer Michelle Jonné. "I wanted to do the shoots to show that [marriage] is happy … it's sexy and it's not over." But not all are on board: “Do I think it's a little bizarre? Yes,” says a New York bridal expert. “And I am far from a prude.” One newlywed, however, loved it so much she plans to show the shots to her kids: “I wouldn’t show this to them at the age of 10. But when they’re older and can understand it." See actual "morning after" pics here.
