    I love it! I think my favorite is the bouquets behind the back.

    Love them!! I have been doing untraditional weddings so no photos with bridesmaids so far. Hopefully this weekend :).

    I think my favorite was the dresses hanging to show the detail, then adding in the bridesmaids. I would’ve loved to have seen the little girls in the photos that matched the flower girls dresses.

    The photo of the dresses and boots on that shabby white building brought a tear to my eye! So special. Great post!!

  • Katerina Foster

    These are all great ideas! Some of my favorite shots we get on a wedding day are with the bouquets up as well as criss-crossed arms around each others backs with their bouquets. Bride and bridesmaid photos are so much fun to set up 🙂

    All of these photos are so nice, but the one by Chris Sosa Photography with the brides from the back is the prettiest!!! Great round up of lovely shots! Now I need to find a husband =]
