3 Tips For Good Getting Ready Pictures on Your Wedding Day
#1. Have the photographer come for the last 20-30 minutes.. not the full time.
We don’t need to be there for 1-2 hours of contouring and hair curling in order to document the getting ready process. In fact, it really only takes about a half an hour to get all of the photos needed to tell this part of the story! Plus.. you’re not going to want photos when you have zero makeup on anyways. Let us come when the final touches are happening (we can even fake touching up the makeup for pictures) when you’re already all glammed up and feeling beautiful, and you’re guaranteed to love the result!
2. Hire a hair and makeup artist!
I will always recommend this to every bride of mine. When you’re getting professional photos done, especially on one of the biggest days of your life, you want to look your absolute best. Your makeup will photograph differently than it will look in real life, so having a professional who knows what to do to make you look your best for pictures do your makeup for you will be huge. Plus, then you don’t have to stress about any of that on your big day. You can focus on enjoying everything while someone else focuses on pampering you.
3. Details, details, details.
This is your chance to get all of those pretty little details that you spent months collecting beforehand photographed. With all of the hustle and bustle of a wedding day it can be easy for these small things to get overlooked and/or missed in pictures if you don’t designate a time to have it all documented. If you have a photographer coming for getting ready shots be sure to set aside all of your accessories so they can spend some time capturing all of those little things for you. You want to remember every part of this day, so don’t forget about the details!
