We all know about the standard have to get pictures at weddings, like all the bridal party, family shots and the guests seated at each table. But how about the fun, memorable pictures that will adorn your walls and cover your desktop for years to come?
Here are some fresh takes on must have wedding pics!
1. Jumping on the bed
Everyone loves a good jump on the bed. Now just get your photographer to make sure they are there to capture it. Get one of the bride by herself, the bride with her maid of honor, one of the groom and one of the bride and groom together!

2. Something sexy
You may as well go for it today when your hair and make-up are flawless. Get a little frisky with your guy and don't be shy!

3. Dress Up
Ok this picture you may have to take after your wedding, but it is something you definitely want to photograph. Take a picture of your flower girl in your wedding dress. Then hide it until she gets married! What a wonderful gift that will be for her someday.
4. The Veil
Everyone always has the shot of the groom lifting up the bride's veil. Now let's actually get him under it too! With the right lighting in the background, your photo will be magical.

5. The Entrance
This shot is often missed. Make sure to put it on your list for the photographer. Get a picture right before the bride is about to walk down the aisle. If you have two photographers have one of them stay on the bride and the other get a reaction shot of everyone in the audience.

And for extra credit...I call this one The Happily Ever After.
I couldn't resist this AMAZING photo! You will need a few palm trees and preferably a tropical island to make this one happen! Looks like something straight out of a fairytale.
