18 Fresh Ideas for Your Must-Have Wedding Photos List!

Nidhi Chaudhary, 30 Mar 2017

After booking your wedding photographer, the next thing to do is share all the must-have shots that you don't want to miss. While you may gather all the 'typical' shots (think getting ready shot, adjusting the nath, three generation together and it goes on),  but being a little quirky hurt no one! Realising that when it comes to wedding photography, our inner Marilyn Monroe knows no boundaries, we thought of putting together all the UNIQUE photos that you can have on your wedding. Say goodbye to those cliched shots! 

Here are 18 ways of doing it right when it comes to getting unique photos: 

#1 Bride and Bridesmaid Selfie Shot With The Photographers Camera

Selfies at weddings might have become passe, but how about getting it done with the professional camera setup?
