1. Showcase The Back of the Dress
I love to capture the beautiful details of the back of a wedding dress. To achieve this goal I usually pose the bride and bridesmaid holding each other by the waist facing away from the camera. Just like the image below. I always make sure I get 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 hear about the first look for the bride and groom but what about when the bridal party sees the bride for the first time? The brides first reveal to her bridesmaids can result in some emotional and memorable photo opportunities. I’ve had several brides over the past few years request this shot.
