While you get prettied up for the big day, don't forget to call in your photographer for some gorgeous getting ready photos, which sometimes end up being the most beautiful in your entire album. We put together 8 must take photos for this session.
Outfit on Hanger
Photo: The Creative Lens Hang your saree or lehenga skirt on a hanger, preferably with the dupatta flowing down from one side. We love how this shot above combines the magazine with the brides Chura and lehenga- the pop of pink in the cover ties everything together You could get creative with your hanger and have a customised one saying 'Bride' like the one above with the couples initials

The Vintage, Editorial shotPhoto: Morvi Images, Black and white, Abstract and almost out of a fashion magazine- for those with an artistic bent.
The Dupatta Placing Shot
Photo : House On The CloudsThe first time the dupatta is placed on the brides head is the first time she really transforms from girl to bride. The front shot of the bride as the dupatta is placed on her is a great moment to capture.
The "Wearing Your Heels" ShotFrom the wedding: Neha & Zoheb We love this gorgeous photo of a bride wearing her Jimmy Choo heels. Want a cuter photo? Get one of your bridesmaids to help you put them on.
