Must-have Iconic Shots\\nClassic wedding pictures you should be sure to get.\\n__Getting Ready__\\n\\nHave candid shots taken of you getting into your dress, having your hair done, or just waiting with your family and bridesmaids—these capture the pre-wedding excitement, nervousness, and anticipation.\\n__Bridal Portrait__\\n\\nPortraits in which you're in motion reveal a more natural you; when they are posed and shot straight-on, results are often a bit dull.\\n__Beauty Shot__\\n\\nWe suggest adding this close-up photo op to the \\"classics\\" list. Have it shot from slightly above, an angle that's very flattering and keeps the focus on your face, not on your dress. Take these pre-ceremony, when your hair and makeup are fresh.\\n__Group Photo__\\n\\nThese shots often become family favorites, so find a spot where everyone can scatter a bit at different levels, with you and your groom up front. Try to get everyone laughing for a more natural result.\\n__Full-Length Portrait__\\n\\nChange up the standard \\"V-pose\\" (where you both face forward and slightly towards each other) with a few more casual angles. Show some affection—something as simple as holding hands can give the photo more personality.\\n__The Kiss__\\n\\nYour kiss should last a few seconds—for romance's sake, of course, but also so your photographer can capture it. Here, the officiant's expression in the background is a nice bonus.\\n__Processional__\\n\\nThis photo captures the walk down the aisle from the bride's perspective. A shot that's slightly off-center is a modern approach, and captures more of the surrounding environment.\\n__Recessional__\\n\\nThe last thing they're thinking about here is the photographer, another reason why this very special moment makes for a beautiful, natural couple shot.\\n__First Dance__\\n\\nEven though the spotlight will be on you, the less conscious you are of the camera (and of your guests watching), the better.\\n__Cake Cutting__\\n\\nThe best couple-and-cake shots aren't usually the posed ones; candids of the couple cutting and tasting the cake make the sweetest portraits.\\n__Exiting the Reception__\\n\\nHaving guests wave sparklers or toss streamers can make your departure from the reception more exciting.\\n__Getaway Car__\\n\\nThe classic car gives this photo a romantic, \\"1950s Hollywood\\" feel, but a shot of you climbing into even a standard car or limo will be similarly appealing.
