WEDDING GETTING READY PHOTOS

WEDDING PLANNING

Our Approach to Getting Ready Photos

Your wedding getting ready photos on the day will really help to set the tone and mood for your photos. If you’re like me, then you probably don’t want photos taken of you with no make up or messy hair. Most of our brides tell us they prefer their getting ready photos to start once their hair and make up have been partially or fully done. It’s also about what makes you feel comfortable, especially while in front of a camera. As photographers, we want you to look back on your photos and think ‘wow, I looked great that day!’ So if this means waiting til your make up and hair is complete, then do that. Some couples even choose to skip having getting ready photos altogether and that’s ok too.

What We’ll Photograph While You’re Still Getting Ready

While you’re in the early stages of your preparation, we’ll use any time to capture all those detail shots. This means, dress, jewellery, invitations, shoes, perfume and more. Obiviously, for the guys it’s going to be a little less because we all know they have it easy! We’ll also use this time to capture and document the atmosphere and location. Keep in mind that the location/room can greatly affect the overall look and feel of your images.

How Long Should You Allocate For Getting Ready Photos?

As a general guide, the guys normally don’t need more than 20 or so minutes. Spending time with the bride can often take longer in which we would normally allow an hour for these photos.

How To Improve Your Wedding Getting Ready Photos

Keep the room tidy

While there is usually a lot going on, we know this can often be a hard task to keep. However, trust us when we say it will make your photos look so much better. You’ll thank us later.

Have a Spacious Room

On the day, it helps to have a room where there is plenty of space to move around and work as required. This can be particulary helpful on those hot summer days. There aren’t too many people we know that like to be crammed in one space with nowhere else to go. Ensuring plenty of space can also help obtain better focal lengths from a photographer perspective.

Consider Good Lighting

Photographers love natural light and can make taking those important shots easier, especially when time may be limited. It is also important when you are getting ready and want to see your hair and make up in the best light.

Put Your Dress on Last

As the bride, be the one who is last to put the dress on. If you have all your bridesmaids dressed, then they can help you as you put your dress on and these can make for some beautiful photos.

What About The Groom Getting Ready?

Don’t worry – there’s no way we’ll forget about the groom. We’ll be there to ensure we capture some of these memories as well. This may look like having a cheeky drink to calm the nerves along with some individual and fun photos as a group.
