18 of the Most Epic Bride Tribe Shots from 2018

OMG, I can literally remember sitting down last year to muse over our favorite pics of 2017, and now I’m doing the same thing for 2018. TOTAL BLUR. It’s pretty amazing doing these best-of roundups, but it’s also the biggest black hole situation you can get yourself into. No one wants to stop after looking at 50, 100, 300 even 500 pictures 😳, and even as I’m writing this - thinking about all the pics I plucked for this post - I’m still feeling like I could pull another heavyweight cache of captures. 2018, to be precise...

We’d all be here until the New Year, though, so let’s no do that. Instead, let’s marvel at a less-intimidating stock of snaps that feature one of our favorite things: a bride and her tribe. Whether it’s the rehearsal dinner, when champagne is flowing and the gifts and cards are getting passed out, the morning of the wedding, when the whole crew is getting all glammed up, during the all-important first look, when a bride totally shocks her squad with her #soontobewifey self, or right before the wedding, when a bride needs the support and strength of her sista sistas to lead her into the biggest steps of her life thus far, these incredible opportunities for photos between a bride and the best people she knows cannot be missed.

It’s an example of something we talk about all the time - the fact that the most special wedding scenes are the ones that are totally unprompted and that catalyst ALL the feels. And when photographers are lucky enough to be there to catch the crew during these elusive moments, it’s straight up magical.

We went through some of our faves from the Wedding Chicks feed over the last few months, checked out our #inspiration page and the prettiest posse posts from our vendors, and grabbed a couple shots from a handful of other photographers we stalk (consistently), and if you’re getting ready to be a bride in 2019, let these Gram gems be your guide for some epic group shots!
