Behind the scenes’ portraits of a bride getting ready are some of the most memorable shots as they capture her excitement in an unrehearsed way. This is a great way to capture spontaneous emotions. Candid close up shots of her hair and make-up add the extra edge to the album, whereas most other pictures are posed for and rehearsed.

What’s a bridal portrait session without the best friends around? Brides should brainstorm with their photographers about the best ways to incorporate the girlie gang into shoots. With their matching bridesmaids’ clothes, but unique personalities, every friend will add a different vibe to the group photos – and the memories will be treasured by all for years to come.
