I would ask her if she wants to not feature the bump or if she wants to show it off...that will at least let you know how to start going about planning for it..

Yup. I find they're into it and want to feature the pregnancy. Here's one shot I took of just such a bride:

I think you need to have a talk with the bride and determine expectations. She may want the pregnancy incorporated into the shots, or very much want to hide it. One of my daughters didn't show until she was 8 months pregnant and at full term, only had a small bump that was easily hidden. If your bride is "lucky" like that, it might be a non issue. In any event, talk to her about expectations, bad pun intended, and go from there.

Just a thought: times are a changin' and while many pregnant brides are eager to show off the bump in the wedding gown, the parents of the bride might not be so "progressive", so I would definitely want to have some shots that they would be happy to show to their "older friends". Of course, they might never SAY so, but....

In re-reading your post, I apologize for my answer, as you weren't asking for opinions, you were looking for examples. Peacefield gave you a beautiful example, wish I had one to contribute. Good luck with your wedding, I'm sure you will come up with some beautiful shots, and the inspiration WILL hit as the day unfolds.

My only real advice is not to make it ALL about the pregnancy. Make sure it's not a maternity session in a wedding dress. Sure a few sweet belly pics are great, but ultimately it's about the couple and their day. I know a lot of PG brides who all feel really self conscious about their weight so just keep that in mind. Usually women don't envision themselves 6 mos PG on their wedding day :P

Good luck!

Wish I ran into this post last week. I shot as 2nd last Saturday and never met the couple before the day so I was a little surprise. Many great poses and tips here. Thank you all!

Imagine if the kid at the age of 17 finds the wedding shots and sees his/her mom preggers prior to wedding?! Unless ifcourse he/she was told all along mommy was knocked up.
A relative married his 6mos pregnant gf. She was irratible, dissheveled, hair not combed, insulted her mother, could not dance, ifcourse could not drink alcohol, always wanted to sit, did not want photos taken with anyone. And then, yes you guessed it... she ran away with her new bf after having 2 kids.
