Making the Most of Your Getting Ready Time!

BRIDAL PREP: Usually takes between 90-120 MINUTES

When I arrive I will begin by photographing your carefully chosen wedding day details – your dress, invitation suite, the rings, your shoes, jewelry, perfume, gifts, vows, etc. All the sentimental items that you gathered to make this day so special. I will then photograph the finishing touches of your hair and makeup and the excitement of you getting into your dress with your family and bridesmaids!

Tip: I love natural light! All the images above were taken using only natural light coming through large windows in the suite. When choosing your getting ready location, try to choose a space with at least 2 windows, but the more the merrier. This gives me and the makeup artist a place to setup, and allows for more light to fill the room. Light colored walls and ceilings also help reflect light and create brighter and dreamier pictures. Many brides choose to get ready at a hotel or the bridal suite of their church or reception location. This way you don’t have to worry about clearing out the clutter and can just enjoy the giddy excitement that is the morning of your wedding!


GROOM PREP & DETAILS: Usually takes between 25- 35 MINUTES

The guys tend to get ready a lot faster than the girls and therefore require less time! We will photograph his wedding day details- shoes, tie/bowtie, socks, cufflinks, gifts, vows, etc. in the same style as the brides- but of course with a masculine twist.  Then photograph the groom getting dressed and grab some shots of the groom and groomsmen having fun and relaxing!
