Before the photo shoot begins, try to let go of any insecurities and relax. Your bridal portrait session is a once-in-a-lifetime experience, and it's supposed to be fun! Bring your mother or maid of honor along for support; if nothing else, you'll need help getting in and out of your wedding gown. Be true to yourself, and if a particular pose makes you feel awkward, it's OK to tell your photographer you'd like to try something different instead. Not every shot has to be serious or formal, so have fun with posing and consider snapping a few candid photos, too. Sometimes the best photos are captured when you let your guard down, so laugh, let loose and enjoy this special occasion. All eyes are on you!
