The topic of bridal couple shoots is on everyone's lips at weddings and is an important part of the day, especially for the bride and groom. After all, the look in the wedding dress is unique on this day! There are a few options for implementing a bridal couple shoot. The situation is similar with bridesmaids' pictures. These have also become very popular in Germany. Today we took bridesmaids pictures in the beautiful Sandheide, which we don't want to withhold from you.

Some couples combine their bridal couple shoot after Getting Ready with a so-called "First Look Shoot". First Look means, as the name suggests, that the bride and groom see each other for the first time on their big day in their wedding dress/suit. This does not necessarily have to be at the altar. Depending on the planning and preferences of the bride and groom, a place and time is often chosen here when the bride and groom are still alone. At the same time, of course, it should also be suitable for taking some great photos.
From our experience we can only say: These pictures are simply incredibly emotional and therefore a precious memory. It is definitely worth planning half an hour after the First Look. Because here you can also do a small bridal couple shoot before the wedding ceremony. If there is still enough time before the ceremony, bridesmaids' pictures can also be scheduled here. It often makes sense to use the "calm before the storm" for such pictures, otherwise you run the risk of losing something in the tight planning of the day.
Another option is of course to schedule the bride and groom shoot and the bridesmaids' pictures after the wedding ceremony and champagne reception. Again, we recommend a good 1-1.5 hours for this. The time in the late afternoon or early evening is best suited because the sun is already a good bit lower, especially in summer. This creates a beautiful soft light in good weather.
For couples who prefer to spend the whole day with their guests, after-wedding shoots are also suitable. Here, the bride and groom and photographer come together again on a separate date to take 2 hours for the bridal shoot in peace and quiet. This also has advantages, because you can arrange the time specifically. This allows you to perfectly time the sunset, for example, in order to take advantage of the best light. In addition, the bride and groom have the opportunity to give the wedding outfit a second life and thus enjoy the wedding feeling a second time.
