If you’re reading this blog, you and I have at least one thing in common: you swoon over those detail photos on Pinterest. The photos of the rings, invites and all the other little details you’ve spent so much time picking out for your wedding day. I’ve also been doing this long enough to know that brides tend to forget the same things over and over again (no blame, I know you have A LOT going through your head), hence the need for a wedding detail checklist!
It’s not surprising that the last thing you’re going to remember is to grab ALL of the wedding bands, your shoes, your perfume, etc. so that I can get a shot of them during the prep time.
I normally photograph getting ready for about an hour and a half before the ceremony or first look. After the details are done I move on to capturing you all getting ready and you getting into your dress! This bridal prep time is a GREAT time for me to get warmed up AND for the bridesmaids to get used to me being around. I know it’s VERY tempting for brides to cut this part short when they are only working with a certain number of hours but this time is VITAL. It’s important for ME to get warmed up, it’s important for the sake of your images and the story I’m telling through them and it’s NEVER a good idea to START rushed.
Here is a wedding detail checklist of *typical* bridal details – put them in a box for me so after I arrive and give you a big WEDDING DAY hug, I can get right to work.
