19 March 2016
Planning your photographer list? Include these special bridal party pictures to capture important memories.
Your bridal party will include some of the most important people in your life, so it's important to make sure the photographer captures plenty of them on your wedding day.
To help you come up with some fun ideas to get them involved, here's a list of the photos you must get with your beautiful ladies.
1. The traditional posed photo
While you may not wish to have posed photos from your entire wedding day, it's nice to ensure you capture everyone neatly lined up and smiling at the camera so you can see everyone clearly and nobody is missed out!
2. The getting ready photo
This is one of the best ways to start your wedding day preparations... Ask your photographer to capture you all getting ready, and not just you on your own or each of your bridesmaids separately.
3. The first look photo
Request that your photographer capture their reactions as you walk into the room entirely ready in your gown, with hair, make-up, shoes and all! It'll most definitely be a photo you'll treasure forever.
4. How'd you meet the bride photo
Give each bridesmaid a chalkboard and ask them to jot down how they met you and pose with their boards! Makes for a great group shot, and also a conversation started way down the line when you're looking back at your photos.
5. Individual photo
Your relationship with each maid in your bridal party is and will be different, so you'll want to make sure that you get a photo with each one of them. You can then include these photos in your thank-you note to each bridesmaid.
6. Reveal your shoes photo
After all, the shoes complete the outfit whether you can see them or not! Capture the all-important details of your bridal party... Like the shoes in a fun footwear shot! This is a must if you're wearing fun coloured shoes on the day.
7. Silly pose photo
It might be cheesy, but so what! Take a few fun photos in your group to let each bridesmaid express her personality.
8. Ready to walk photo
It's a moment where your heart will be racing, and you may have butterflies in your stomach... But your girls will be by your side to ensure you're kept intact! This image will most definitely make for a beautiful memory you'll cherish forever.
9. Hiding behind flowers photo
Just for a spot of fun... Highlight the beauty of the bridal party bouquets (the flowers need attention, you'll have forked out a lot for them) by lining up in a line, and covering your faces with them. Perfection for the minimalist brides out there.
10. The behind shot photo
Because you want to capture the beauty of all of your outfits... And most importantly, show off the back of your wedding gown a little more.
11. End of the night photo
Make sure you have a huge group hug towards your evening reception, we have no doubt it will make for one of the best candid shots of the entire day.
