How to get the best Getting Ready photographs

with No Comments

Getting ready photographs is all about taking natural pictures as you and your groom prepare for the Wedding Ceremony.
This pictures are often the most artistic ones because I can play with the light conditions inside the room, and it's probably the only time of the day when we have enough time to create something instead of documenting what is happening.
In order to get the best pictures before the ceremony there are a few tips that you should read:

  • Have all your details laid out at a table, so I can take pictures of your jewelry or your wedding invites without having to dig through your stuff.
  • Don't be ready when I get to your room. It's always nice to have the dress hanging somewhere inside the room to get good pictures of it.
  • It's always a good idea to have the rings together in the same room. At least the wedding bands, because getting nice ring pictures in the beach is not an easy task.
  • If your parents are in the room, we can always get a nice intimate family portrait before saying I Do.
  • You will probably go to the Spa to have your hair and makeup done before I see you in the room. It's ok, because the best pictures are usually taken after that. You can always apply lipgloss just a minute before walking down the aisle.
  • If you have someone in your party doing your hair & makeup, tell her to finish at least 45 minutes before the ceremony.
  • If you have kids, have them in the room so they can get ready along with you.
  • Have your bridesmaids ready to help you. If they cannot find their dresses, or doing their makeup when you are getting into your wedding gown, they will not be in your photographs.
