Sure, you'll have about a hundred photos of you in your wedding dress. But shopping for the dream gown involved a ride on an emotional roller coaster, so needless to say, you're emotionally invested in the piece, right? (Not to mention financially invested as well!) And since you'll only be wearing the dress once, you'll want to make sure you have all of its best angles photographed to help savor the memories and make the most of its meaning.
Look beyond the standard bridal portraits and consider including these 10 shots to help capture your wedding dress in all its beauty.
The Getting Ready Shot
This in-between shot captures the last few minutes of you and your dress before you both head down the aisle. Plus, you'll forever treasure the moment when your bridesmaids or mom helped make your bridal look complete.
The Back Shot
Most of your photographs will showcase the front of the dress—don't forget to get that 360 degree view. From the train to the bodice, the back of the dress always has surprising details in store.
The Editorial Shot
There's nothing quite as glamorous as a serious editorial pose that looks like it belongs in a magazine. This will be one to frame.
The Shoe Shot
The dress may steal the show, but it's nothing without the shoes. Show off how good they look with your dress by lifting up the skirt for a sweet and flirty shot.
The Sitting Shot
Forget standing up—sitting down with the skirt spread out around you magically transforms your dress to resemble a soft cloud of snow for a fairytale princess look.
