20+ Solo Poses For Indian Brides

Gone are the days when brides would pose coyly in their wedding lehengas, their gaze barely meeting the camera lens. Brides today know how to own their wedding day, from giving dhamakedaar performances on their sangeet ceremonies, to using funky props and fearlessly fusing traditional with modern influxes.

For brides today, candid photographs are an absolute must. Here we give you 20+ poses a bride must get photographed in, to put her lehenga on full display!

1. The Mirror Pose

This one manages to catch a reflective moment just before the bride goes ahead with her vows. It captures a personal moment and is a simple yet classy pose.

2. A Full Length Portrait

A full length portrait involves the bride standing in her regal beauty, complete with a festive background. Remember to make the portrait look complete - include flowers in the background if you must, but ensure the bride remains the focus.

A picture perfect with the royal canine just before getting married should definitely make it to the list. The paw-sitively adorable pup is going to miss you for sure!

4. A Sexy Back Pose

All too often, a bride’s blouse gets neglected, since it gets covered by her dupatta. Get a photo of her back to capture the glory of her gorgeous hair and the elegant silhouette of her ghaghra.

6. Mudra Pose

Sitting on the floor with the ghaghra spread around her is one of our personal favourites for a bridal photoshoot. The border and intricacies of the skirt come to light in this pose, as does the subtleties of her makeup and jewellery.

This one is for brides who are all about the glitz. Get your photographer to click you as such that your jewellery becomes the centre of focus. Be it your tiny maang tikka or heavy solitaire- use this to focus on the jewellery that might otherwise get lost in pictures.
