Today we’re sharing some easy getting ready tips to ensure great photos on our Tuesday Tips series. We know wedding planning can be stressful and since you’ve never done it before, we want to make sure the things we know and have learned are available to our brides so they have they best experience possible. With our Tuesday Tips series, we’re blogging about topics throughout the entire wedding experience and doing our best to educate our brides early so they can feel more prepared and (more importantly!) less stressed!
gather your details
I ask brides to gather your details for when we arrive! Every bride loves having those beautiful shots of her bridal details. These are the items that you’ve carefully curated for the perfect bridal look and they should be documented! I love having some time to shoot the dress, shoes, jewelry, invitations, etc. (For a checklist of common bridal details, check out our last Tuesday Tips post!) Details are the first think we photograph and they get us warmed up for the rest of the day! We do our best to photograph the details that compliment and extenuates the style of the entire wedding day so having them prepped makes for a great start to the day!
tidiness is key
When we walk into a bridal prep room and things are everywhere, we can have a hard time finding the perfect area to photograph you getting your dress on! Water bottles, clothes, and suitcases aren’t things you want to make an appearance in your photos, so try and keep those items to one corner of the room. That way, when we arrive we can immediately start shooting rather than having to declutter for you!
windows are magical
By having just ONE window in the bridal prep area, I am able to capture your portraits with beautiful and soft light. However, the more windows the better! Should you not have the ability to have any window light we’ll set up flashes to compensate. Window light is just so dreamy and flattering, why not plan for it?!
