"You may kiss the bride!" It's a phrase that's as much a part of popular culture as it is wedding traditions. The kiss has a centuries-long tradition as a symbol of trust, commitment and respect. Today's couples observe it as a symbol of love, marking the end of the wedding ceremony and the beginning of a new life together.

Like other photos during the ceremony, decide whether it's best for the photographer to capture this as a candid shot during the event or as a re-enactment afterward. Sometimes the angle the photographer can get during the ceremony doesn't make for the best shot. Today's digital photography lets you see how it turned out and, if needed, you can stage that picture perfect smooch for another photo.
