After reading so many blogs and looking at billions of pictures on Pinterest, I noticed that during every single wedding you can find some pictures that are classic and taken by almost every wedding photographer. I chose my TOP 20 pictures I want to be in my wedding photo album. That might sound silly but I really think that so many couples choose to strike those poses and ask those pictures to be taken because it is  really beautiful (and because future brides spend too much time on Pinterest:)

1. Getting ready

I think it is a very nice to take those “getting ready” pictures before the ceremony because it shows all the excitement on bride’s and groom’s faces and conveys the atmosphere of the wedding better.

2. The picture of bride’s dress and shoes

I think it’s a MUST to take a picture of the wedding dress and shoes for a wedding photographer! Dresses and shoes are girls best friends! Especially on this kind of occasion!

3. Bridal bouqet

Knowing that brides spend a huge chunk of their wedding budget on flowers, a picture of bridal bouqet is necessary!!!

5. The “first look” 

So many couples can’t decide whether they should or shouldn’t do the first look, but I know, I am definitely doing it!

6. Looking at each other like no one else is there

It is a picture where the bride and groom look at each other and it gives me a feeling that only two of them exist in this Universe. I don’t know if you understand what I mean, but look at them and you might get an idea.

7. Just a BRIDE

After taking tons of pictures together, it is so beautiful to have a picture just of a bride herself. Enough said. Look at this gorgeous bride!

8. Just a GROOM

Check this handsome groom!

9. Rings

I think that no matter how expensive, amazing, original, sparkly or old fashioned your rings are, the picture of them MUST to be taken! You never know what might happen to them after 50 years of marriage, but you will still have some pictures to look at!

10. Children in the wedding

I am talking about a flower girl, your sister’s brand new baby boy or your little nephew. Some wedding parties don’t want children to be during their “addult” event, but I think that children bring so much joy! I want some pictures taken of my little friends!

11. The ceremony

I think it is such a beautiful moment that is captured in so many angles. I don’t care about the angle, I just want that picture to show how I feel that moment. I and my significant other might shed a tear or two and I want my photographer to notice that.

19. The first, second, third and final DANCES!

I think that the first dance does not necessarily have to be a classic one! A couple having fun on the dance floor makes the wedding guests so much more entertained! Also, the more time for dancing, the bigger opportunity to shake all the cake and extra calorie intake during the wedding! :)

I think that every couple would add some more pictures or poses they would like to be captured  during their BIG DAY, but for me, these are really important and beautiful moments I want to find in my wedding album and enjoy it for many  upcoming years.

P.S. I might add up some more pics later, these are the ones that I thought of immediatelly.
