48 Must Take Wedding Photos You Don’t Want to Miss
From getting ready on wedding day morning and putting on the wedding dress, to the afterparty, we have collected amazing must-have photo ideas that you should share with your bridesmaids and of course wedding photographer. Which one is our favourite? I guess you’ll have to keep reading and see…
Getting Ready On The Wedding Day Morning
Most brides agree that this is the best way to start your wedding day preparations. Instead of each bridesmaid getting ready on her own, why not do it together. Hiring a makeup artist to one place will ensure everyone looks fabulous and doesn’t break the budget. Your wedding photographer will have plenty of opportunities to capture the fun moments.
On the Bed
Don’t forget to capture all the moments before you walk down the aisle with your girls. You really can’t have enough getting ready shots, including this classic snuggled-up-on-the-bed pose.
Granted, you’ll have about 100 wedding pictures of you in your dress, but a still life lets you preserve it in your memory just like the first time you saw it — a beautiful piece of wearable art.
Jump for Joy
Getting married doesn’t mean you always have to be an adult, right? There’s nothing like carefree innocence. Throw it back to your slumber party days, and jump on the bed with your best friends in excitement for the big day.
You’ll actually want two shots. One alone, against your dress, for a high-fashion look, and one of your two rings together, to symbolize your new union.
Beautiful Back Details
Wedding dresses and bridesmaid dresses have gorgeous back details, so why not photograph them! You can show off your matching bouquets or use photo props like giant balloons. This is also a perfect shot to capture the gorgeous wedding dress train.
A Little Bit Of Fun With Signs

The First Look In The Mirror
After long struggle of putting on the dress, this creative wedding photo captures the bride finally admiring the dress and the reaction of the bridesmaids.
The iPhone Shot
We are in the age of technology, after all. It’s only fitting to get a snap of the bridesmaids documenting your stunning debut via iPhone — a modern take on the first look.
All those hours of primping and prepping are hard work! Add a bit of fizz to your morning with a champagne splash.
A toast to the bride — and those who helped make her day so special — is definitely in order. The circle effect created by the from-below angle not only makes for a unique shot, but focuses attention on what’s at hand, literally — the bubbly.
The Selfie Shot
Of course you’ve got to gather your squad for a selfie, but make sure your photographer is there to capture the selfie in action for a fun twist. What better way to capture the genuine happiness around you and show off the beautiful results of all that primping?
Nothing Wrong With Acting A Little Silly
Now that portraits are done, you can act a little silly because this tensions isn’t good for anyone.
Out the Window
This stunning candid shot reminds us of a bridal version of The Beatles’ « Abbey Road » cover. Think of it as the “artsy photo” for your wedding album.
Hiding Behind Flowers
The Shoe Shot
The dresses often steal all the credit, but what’s a girl without a pair of killer shoes? We love how this line up draws attention to fabulous pumps without distracting from the girls wearing them.
A cropped pic of your shoes (and fun socks!) gets an update by being casually posed.
Wedding Photos With Best Friends Ever
Your maid of honor deserves a few pictures just with you. This idea captures the true feelings and the emotions between the bride and her MOH.
The Behind Shot
This serene and peaceful snap says, “we have each other’s backs.” Not only does it capture a moment of reflection, but it’s a great way to show off your train and the back of the bridesmaids’ dresses.
In need of a backdrop? That’s what your bridesmaids are for. Distance and space bring a whole new perspective — literally.
End of the Night
A classic « just married » shot is a perfect ending to your album.
Whether you have a sparkler send-off or something more low-key, a good-bye shot is yet another way to close your album.
