23 Must Have Photos for Brides Getting Ready

Everyone loves a sentimental shot of the groom seeing his bride for the first time or that cute moment during the couple’s first dance. But don’t forget all the special moments that lead up to those photos!






When you’re surrounded by all your girls and filled to the brim with excitement, you’ll definitely want your photographer there to capture all the behind-the-scenes memories you’ll make while you’re getting ready.








Sipping on a glass of champagne is pretty much a necessity when getting ready for your wedding day. Show off your ring or gather your girls for a great shot!








There’s nothing quite like being pampered, right? Especially on your wedding day. Make sure your photographer gets the shots of you getting all glammed up!








Your maid of honor has been by your side through thick and thin. Cute shots like this are mandatory for your wedding album and your friendship.








Opening a gift from your groom the morning of the wedding is a very intimate moment that you’ll want to cherish forever.








Mirror photos feel up close and personal without having a camera right in your face. They are great for showing hair, makeup and dress details in a fresh way.








That first time you step into your wedding dress is a magical moment. Make sure you get a photo of your mom, maid of honor or bridesmaids helping you out on your special day.








You put a lot of thought into what you want your bridal style to look like. From your hair and makeup to your nails and jewelry, have your photographer take a picture of all the little details. Plus, this is a great way to show off your ring or hairstyle.








Strap on your shoes with style and don’t forget to snap a pic! Photos like these are great for showing off the details of your shoes and dress.








The veil is the very last finishing touch to your bridal look. Make sure to capture the special moment of putting it on. These are the bridal photos that you’ll look back at and remember how gorgeous you felt right before you walked down the aisle.








Can these flower girl photos be any cuter? Don’t leave them out of your getting ready routine – there is nothing that little girls love more than getting to play dress up!








Last but certainly not least, take a moment to thank your mom for all that she does. These quiet moments are something that will make you smile for years to come.
