Bride and Groom Prep

Your Wedding day begins with details! This part allows me to prepare and get my creative side warmed up for the rest of the day. I photograph a bride’s details in a way that matches and compliments the style of the entire wedding day. So, in some ways, the details set up the stage for the look of the whole wedding and I love having ample time to stylize and shoot everything. I ask my brides to gather any details they have before I arrive so that I can walk in, say my hello and then begin with all the goodies.

 What to gather…
Here is a little list of items you can gather the morning of your Wedding day to include in your detail shots!

Items for HER:
Dress with hanger
Veil/Hair pieces
Rings (All three!)
Invitation with Envelope
Your “something borrowed, something blue”

Items for HIM:
Bow tie/Tie
Cuff Links
Cologne Bottle
Rings (All three!)

A small tip: Sometimes, depending on the theme and “look” of the wedding day, there may be some extra elements that you could include when you gather your details. For example, if you’re having a country themed wedding, you could include a piece of burlap or lace. If you’re having a rustic themed wedding that includes some wooden elements, maybe save a small piece of wood for me to use when I’m shooting your rings and jewelry. This really make for some beautiful and consistent album spreads 😉
