10 Must have Getting Ready photos for Indian brides

Your wedding is not only about planning grand celebrations, it’s also about capturing the euphoric moments to immortalize the extravaganza. You want to live in the moment but little moments make big memories. What could be better to pre-guide the wedding photographer on significant events so even if you blink and miss the moment-candid, posed or creative-it’s captured on camera and stored in your treasure of memorabilia! Here’s a series of shots that must be included as preps to the run-up:

1. CHILLING WITH THE BRIDESMAIDS SHOT

It could best be a candid shot in a room where the bride and the bridesmaids are relaxing before starting to get ready--tokras of marigold and floral garlands strewn about would make it look vivid and celebratory.

2.  DRESSING THE BRIDE

The bridesmaids around the bride helping her wear bangles, earrings, nose pin in a posed shot looks adorable!

3.  STRAPPING THE HEELS

This one where the mehendi artwork on her feet shows to the full--with the lehenga lifted slightly to let a bridesmaid tie the straps on her sandals.

4.  TWIRL OF THE LEHENGA

A picturesque spread of the lehenga showing off the pattern in full. It could be a full-length click or the bride seated on a swing or high chair.

5.  FIRST LOOK IN THE MIRROR SHOT

When the bride is fully done-up and looks to admire herself in the mirror, she’s awestruck at her own beauty!

6.   BEAUTY SHOTS

Pictures taken from different adjustments to enhance the looks, a closeup of the jewellery or hairdo or that perfect click of that dreamy faraway look are to die for. A classic image of the mother and sister of the bride adjusting the veil above her head, one of the bride clanking the kaliras over the bridesmaids are close runner-ups.

7.   VINTAGE BLACK AND WHITE UNCONVENTIONAL SHOTS

A perfect vintage black and white image would be of the bride holding a flute glass ready to take a sip or raise a toast. The photographer could be advised to play with lights and shadows to create some unconventional images.

8.   WALKING AWAY

A symbolic click as the bride is ready to walk away into a new life! She looks over her shoulder to look back and steal a final glance.

9.   WAITING FOR THE BARAAT

As she overlooks a window--ready and waiting, or on the terrace, watching the baraat approaching, with the lights and music adding up to the excitement, she makes for a perfect muse!

10.  A PICTURE PERFECT BRIDAL PORTRAIT

This shot is an inspiration from a Raja Ravi Verma painting of the Queen, which could well be a family heirloom when you pose as the Queen and let the photographer run his charm!
