BY The WMG Bride | 15 Apr, 2015 | 20823 views | 3 min read

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★ 4.9 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 "Brides Stuff" Shot

The Veil Shot

The first look in the mirror

Whether it is to fix your earring or just a first look into the mirror once you are ready, mirrors make for fantastic photo ops.

The Vintage, Editorial shot

The Dupatta Placing Shot

The 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" Shot

From 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.

After all the bridal finery is in place, don't forget the super essential bridal portrait or beauty shots. You know the kind we mean right- gazing into space , looking pretty while staring at nothing ;)

The fun bridesmaid shot


Bridesmaid helping you get ready shot

We love the idea of having your bridesmaid around when you are getting ready. Get some super creative shots of them all in bathrobes, jumping on the bed  or just holding the sign "Just wait till you see her".

The unconventional bridal shots
