There are plenty of photos you may have considered being taken on your Special Day - getting ready, the ceremony, your family, portraits, and of course with the reception. But what about the ladies that are helping you and who have been with you throughout the entire wedding planning process? While you know you'll have some time to take group shots of the entire bridal party, you will want to make sure you have photos with your bridesmaids as you get ready on your Special Day. Here are some ideas:
Back of the Dress
The back of a wedding dress is hidden with beautiful details you will want to capture. You can even pose with all of the bridesmaids to show off their dresses as well. And you can have some great close ups of the bridesmaids helping button, zipper or lace up the back of 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? The bride's first reveal to her bridal party can result in some emotional and memorable photo opportunities.
As you are getting ready everyone's nerves can be 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 telling stories, laughing, jumping on the bed or just being silly can make for great photo opportunities.
Matching Robes or Shirts
Some brides will have special “getting ready” attire for their bridesmaids and you will want us 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 bouquets shot together is one that you will want to have. There are many ways you can showcase the bouquets as well as the bridesmaid's dresses. This where we can get creative.
You cannot forget about the shoes and, what about those pedicures? You will want to get a group shot that showcases everyone’s shoes.
There is bound to be a bottle or two of champagne, or other “beverage”, being opened in the bride's honor. Take a minute to pause as you toast away your single life with your bridesmaids for a fun photograph.
