I just took a trip to Mexico this weekend where the wedding wil be held and booked our photographer! I’m looking online for different poses that I like. I want something other than just me standing in front of a fake background holding my bouquet. (That’s the way my older sisters posed back in the 90s)
Was there any other bride’s photo that you just fell in love with? Can you post any for inspiration?

I really hope some people share… I love to get inspiration off these boards!

Honestly, I do not think the best photos are posed photos. The best photos are often the candid ones. Unfortunately, one can’t really control those. See some of my fav ones here among winners of the contests. However, the common ones that usually happen in most weddings include “somebody tearing up” and/or “somebody laughing uncontrollably”. Those photos are priceless. Most of the times, it does not matter what the pose is (just don’t look directly into the camera), as long as the photographer really takes advantage of the backdrop, the colors, the lightings, and the angles, the photo would turn out to be awesome.

Look at One Love Photo and Our Labor of Love – great photo inspiration.

This isn’t bridal, but the poses are good
Some good bridal ones in here
What kind of dress do you have? A lot is going to depend on the material, location (I’m assuming Mexico? Beach? Or no beach? Or are you doing this in Texas before hand… It is almost bluebonnet season 🙂 But really, in Dallas there are a LOT of awesome opportunities for SWEET bridal portraits. Basically, any style of portrait could be done in Dallas.
there’s the more posey posey look. More stylized
or more full of movement
If you have Attitude, don’t be afraid to show it.
And here’s a lot of good and bad of a bridal portrait search on flickr
Stacey Reeves in Dallas has a lot of great inspiration on her blog for you as well.
If you give more information on what exactly you want to get out of your portrait, it will help find inspiration to fit what you’re looking for. In the end, you can never really go wrong letting your inner child out and skipping and twirling around in your dress. (like in the 2nd picture) It get’s you to laugh for real because you feel silly, if puts movement into you and your dress, and it helps you loosen up 🙂 Don’t be afraid to interact with what’s around you. Trees, tables, sand, dirt, buildings, etc… 🙂

I love the photos ladies! I guess I want both a posey posey look like the first photo in klp2010’s post and some with movement.
And yes I’m getting married in Mexico. I had initially thought of taking my bridals here but I will be doing it over there instead. This is the Mision de San Bernardo in Coahuila, Mexico. Looking at the photos (which are not my own) makes me get butterflies. I am hoping to get awesome photos.
