Top 7 Photos With Your Wedding Party That You Absolutely Need
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 your fiancé but what about your best friends and girls/guys that are helping you and have helped throughout the entire wedding planning process? While you know you’ll have some time to take group shots of the entire wedding party you’ll want to make sure you have these photos with your party as you get ready on your big day.
- Showcase The Back of the Dress
The back of a wedding dress is hidden with beautiful details you’ll want to capture. You can pose with all of the wedding party to show off their attire as well or have some great close ups of the bridesmaids helping button, zipper or lace up the back of your dress.
- First Look With The Party
You have heard about the first look for the couple but what about when the wedding party sees you for the first time? The first reveal to your wedding party can result in some emotional and memorable photo opportunities.
- 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.
- Matching Robes or Shirts
Most clients will have getting ready attire for their getting ready party and you’ll want to capture everyone in their cute and thoughtful pre-wedding wear.
- Bouquets and Attire
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 you can showcase the bouquets as well as the wedding party attire. Get some inspo photos to share with your photographer. One of my personal favs is the “lounge around the couch serious” wedding party photo. We love that one!
- The Shoe Shot
You can’t forget about the shoes ! That seems like a silly detail, but it is something that helps piece together the story of the day. Its fun to have a couple wedding party members pose with their shoes for a photo or two.
- 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 wedding party for a picture perfect shot. PRO TIP: the cork pop is anti climatic. Instead.. pop the cork, put your Thumb in the top of the champagne bottle and shake! Make sure to point it to your photographer so you dont get wet! This is the BEST shot.. one of our favs!
