Before any photo shoot that you do you always need to ask your clients what kind of pictures they are looking for so that you can plan what location and what you want to do with them. It is always good for you to be able to visualise the pictures you are planning on taking before the event as part of your preparation. The pictures I did with this bride, model below at a PTO- workshop not every bride would be interested in doing. As a photographer you can be very creative and do loads of different pictures there are really no limits for the creative person. Only your client depending on what they actually want to hang on their wall. A lot of the time the client doesn't know what they want and therefore you need to listen to them and get a sense for what you think they will like and look good doing at the same time. You also get the couples that say they want the traditional portraits and at the end of the shoot you do something that might not be so traditional just for fun and those are the pictures the clients ends up buying. So even if your clients think they know what they want they might not. But you need to keep in mind when taking pictures like the ones below you need to have taken all the other pictures first because the brides dress might become dirty. Bringing a towel is always a good idea for the bride and groom to sit/lie on but you can still not guarantee the dress will stay clean since you are after all on a stair case as in the picture below.
