There are plenty of photos you have probably considered taking on your wedding day. From getting ready, the ceremony to pictures with your family and of course with the groom but what about the ladies that are helping you and have helped throughout the entire wedding planning process? I love capturing your fun and unique relationship with the ladies in your bridal party! While you know you’ll have time to take group shots of the entire bridal party, you might want to consider these photos with your bridesmaids as you get ready on your big day as well!
Showcase The Dress
Your wedding dress has beautiful details you’ll want to capture. You can pose with all of the bridesmaids to show off their dresses as well or have some great pictures of the bridesmaids helping button, zipper or lace up your dress.
First Look With The Bridesmaids
You have heard about the first look for the bride and groom but what about when the bridal party sees the bride for the first time? Your first reveal to your bridal party can result in some emotional and memorable photo opportunities.
As you are getting ready everyone’s nerves are a little on edge because everyone wants to look their best. There will be moments when you just need to let loose to relax a little and having a little dance party, jumping on the bed or just being silly are moments that can make for great photo opportunities.
Matching Robes or Shirts
Most brides will have getting ready attire for their bridesmaids and you’ll want to capture everyone in their cute and thoughtful pre-wedding wear.
Bouquets and Bridesmaids Dresses
Bouquets won’t last a lifetime but the pictures you have of them will. The bridesmaids and bride bouquet shot is one that you will want to have. There are many ways we can showcase the bouquets as well as the bridesmaid’s dresses. Here is an example of one of my favorite and classic ways to focus on the flowers!
You can’t forget about those special moments where you get to celebrate your favorite ladies! If you choose to exchange gifts or cards, you’ll want pictures of that sweet memory.
You’re getting married! There is bound to be a bottle or two of champagne being opened in the bride’s honor. Take a minute to pause as you toast away your single life with your bridesmaids for a picture perfect shot.
