Wedding Photos You Need to Capture\\nThe latest must-get shots you'll want your photographer to capture.\\n__The \\"Reveal\\"__\\n\\nIf you have your portraits taken before the ceremony, you can set up the moment you first see each other that day as an event. The photographer can get closer to you than is possible when you’re walking down the aisle, and capture all the emotions of your reactions.\\n__Reception Tables, Pre-Party__\\n\\nAfter all your planning efforts, this will be your only chance to see your reception untouched. If you’ve planned picturesque food stations, be sure to ask for shots of those, too.\\n__Group Shot__\\n\\nThis is a wonderful record of the day. Have your photographer make an announcement after the ceremony, asking everyone to pose together, or have him or her keep an eye out for a good candid moment.\\n__Gown Portrait (sans you)__\\n\\nAn artful shot like this somehow captures all the anticipation of the day. You (and your grandkids) will also love having such a clean, clear image of what you wore. The natural light will highlight the gown’s details and make for a prettier picture. Do your part by clearing a path to a nice window for your photographer. If a window is not available, hang the dress on an antique armoire or a door with interesting details.\\n__Entering the Reception from Your POV__\\n\\nThis type of shot comes as close as possible to capturing the thrill of entering your reception and seeing all your friends and family together.\\n__From Behind__\\n\\nYou are guaranteed to look natural—and you’ll get another (rarely photographed) angle of your dress, not to mention the location.\\n__First Dance from a Distance__\\n\\nPulling back makes this moment feel even more intimate. Here, you also get a sense of the space and can see a few guests’ expressions. Bonus: Awkward hand grips are less visible.\\n__From Above__\\n\\nA bird's eye view of your reception or ceremony captures the location, colors, and decor of your wedding all in one grand shot—so suitable for framing.\\n__Group Shot on the Dance Floor__\\n\\nWhat's happening on the dance floor speaks volumes about the energy of your reception. A group photo of your guests getting down captures the vibe of your party in one shot and is just plain fun to look at.\\n__Unposed Portrait__\\n\\nIn addition to the standard cake-cutting shots (the ones where you're smiling, knife poised at the ready), also have your photographer snap a loosened-up portrait of the two of you. One easy moment to capture it: the sweet seconds after you've both tasted your wedding cake for the first time.\\n\\nSee more real wedding photos in our [galleries](http://www.brides.com/realweddings/weddings/).
