There are plenty of photos you have probably considered taking on your wedding day. You may have bride and groom portraits on the forefront of your mind but what about your main girls that got you through planning? These are your closest friends trust me when I say it’s worth your while to get more exciting shots than just few posed group photos!
1. Getting Ready Together
This is the moment that it’s all coming together. The final touches and who better to help you do that than your most supportive friends! You’ll want this moment to be captured as you think back on all the love you have for these women and have received from them!
2. 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? The bride’s first reveal to her bridal party can result in some emotional and memorable photo opportunities.
3. Having Fun
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.
4. Bridesmaids in Their Matching Robes/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.
5. Strike a Pose
What I love about the bridal party is all the fun personalities that are showcased within the group. I believe one of the best ways to draw out the individual personalities is to call out “Strike A Pose” and capture whatever first comes to their minds. It captures each persons essence and is fun to reminisces upon.
6. Celebrating Shot
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.
