Your wedding photographer will often begin the day with getting ready photos and detail photos. If you work with me, this is standard in every 8+ hour wedding collection. I love the getting ready potion of the day because everyone is so excited and I get to capture those special moments between close friends and immediate family.
Just like other parts of your wedding, some planning beforehand will go a long way to ensure you enjoy this portion of the day. In this post, I want to discuss a few small, but important details that can impact the quality of your getting ready photographs.
2. Keep Selected Locations as Clean as Possible
On your wedding day, help your photographer out by trying your best to be mindful of the setting of your photos. A good photographer and videographer can make any space look beautiful, but please remove as many obstacles as possible. Below is a suggestion on how to do that.
3. Prep Your Details
For many photographers (myself included), the day often begins with detail photographs. If you can, have your invitations, jewelry, shoes, and any other wedding day details you want photographed set aside all together for your photographer to grab as soon as they arrive. This makes it easy for him or her to start right away.
Here’s a list of the common bridal details. (Not all are necessary – just the ones important to you!)
The ultimate goal is to have an efficient and fun time getting ready for your special day. Implement these tips to insure a seamless transition to your walk down the aisle.
