3 Reasons You Need Getting Ready Photos

September 20, 2017

HEY THERE, SWEET FRIEND!

Welcome to my little corner of the web… I’m so glad that you’re here! Take a look around to get a peek at the sweet couples I have the privilege of working with, and the things that make my heart sing.  Need something specific? Feel free to search below!

TAKE A LOOK AROUND

As you can imagine, there are a lot of questions I get pretty regularly about a wedding day.  Questions about the full experience and what it looks like are all pretty common!

Well friends, my favorite way to start the day? Getting ready photos.

There’s something so special about the anticipation of it all – I mean, the bride is getting the final touches on her hair and make-up.  Bridesmaids are bustling around, finishing the steaming, and getting dressed.  Details are coming together and toasts are being made!

There’s nothing sweeter than this time during the wedding day!

Now imagine my dismay, the few times that a bride has expressed wanting to skip out on this part of the day!!  I never want my couples to miss out on an excellent experience, and so I always encourage a change of heart. Why? Because:

1. You gain timeless photos of your bridal details!

You know that dress that you’ve spent endless times trying on in your bedroom beforehand?  The shoes you carefully picked out? The earrings your mama gifted you? This is the perfect time to feature them in all their glory! I love beginning the day photographing these items that will become heirlooms one day for your family!

These items and photos of them create such a beautiful representation of your legacy, and can’t you just picture it now? One day, your granddaughter will pour over your wedding album “oohing” and “ahhing” over all the details that made up your bridal ensemble!

2. Get comfortable in front of the camera early!

I don’t know about you, but every time I step in front of the camera, it takes me a few minutes to feel comfortable with a black box pointing at me and clicking away! By prioritizing getting ready photos, you can alleviate being hyper aware of said black box early! Woohoo!

3. Have fun photos with your favorite gals!

Chances are, as you’ve tried on your dress, you’ve also spent a little time dreaming about getting into it! With hair and make-up done, and all the final touches – your favorite girls get to see you all done up and transformed!  I can’t tell you how special those moments are without fail.  You’re going to want photos of it, I promise!!
