The Top 7 Photos With Your Bridesmaids That You’ll Absolutely Need!

You hand-picked these ladies to stand alongside you, now you can highlight your reasons why!

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, as bride & groom, but what about the ladies that are helping you and have helped 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’ll want to make sure you have these photos with your bridesmaids as you get ready on your big day.

  1. Showcase The Back of  the Dresses

The back of your wedding dress is hidden with all of the beautiful details that you’ll definitely want captured. You can pose with all of your bridesmaids to show off their dresses, as well; or have some great close ups of the bridesmaids helping button, zipper, or lace up the back of your dress.

2.  First Look With The Bridesmaids

You have heard about the first look for the bride & groom, but what about when your bridal party sees you for the first time? The bride’s first reveal to her bridal party can result in some emotional and memorable photo opportunities. You won’t want to miss this opportunity!

3.   Having Fun

As you are getting ready for your wedding day, everyone’s nerves are a little on edge because of the tight schedule, and of course, everyone wants to look their best.

There will be moments when you all need to let loose, relax a little, and have a little fun – popping a bottle of champagne, or popping some confetti poppers together on a bed, are moments that can make for great photo opportunities, as well.

4. 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. 

5. Bouquets and Bridesmaids Dresses

Bouquets won’t last a lifetime, but the pictures you have of them will! The bridesmaids and bridal bouquet shot is one that you will want to have for your wedding album. There are many ways you can showcase the bouquets as well as the bridesmaid’s dresses.

From lining everyone up and holding your bouquets out to the camera, or hiding your faces behind the bouquets, to forming a circle around the bride; this is just another shot that has multiple creative opportunities – your wedding photographer will likely have many ideas for you too.

6. The Shoe Shot

You can’t forget about your gorgeous shoes and what about those pedicures? You’ll want to get a group shot that showcases everyone’s shoes.

7. Celebrating Shot

You’re getting married! As stated before, 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.
