It's all in the details...
Details make great photos on your wedding day. Anything that is unique to you makes a wonderful photo, from a super cool getaway car to a handmade flower girl basket and everything in between. This is a list of what we recommend to bring on your wedding day, more or less is always welcome, we just want you to be you!
What to bring with you
- Wedding Invitation and any special printed pieces
- Rings! and a special box to keep them in
- Cuff Links
- A special perfume, scent is a powerful memory and a perfume is a great way to remember your wedding day on your anniversaries to come
- Something Old, New, Borrowed, Blue
- Anything near and dear to your heart
Getting ready photos are some of our favorite! We recommend choosing a room to get ready in with lots of light and free of clutter. Don't forget the groom! Make sure he has a nicely lit room with lots of light too.
We recommend a first look for a few reasons. It gives you the time and freedom to have a few intimate moments before a whirlwind day. It allows the timeline to be more relaxed. We can do portraits and group photos before the ceremony, leaving your bridal party to enjoy cocktail hour and giving more time to make intimate portraits.
If you don't want to do a first look that's okay too! It's your day and we want it to be everything that you've dreamed of.
We recommend allowing 20-30 minutes for group portraits depending on the size of your family and bridal party.
We recommend two 20 minute time slots for portraits of just the two of you. One following the first look and one following the ceremony.
The most important thing is to trust us to make the best photos. We want you to look your best and look like yourself. We won't coax you into anything that isn't truly you. The most important thing to remember is to relax and have fun! When you're happy it will show though in photos of you.
While we leave it up to you if you want to ask your guests to refrain from taking photos during the ceremony, we recommend that guests are asked to remain in their seat while taking photos and to trust that we will capture the moment.
