When the getting ready session is included in the wedding photography package, this is what to expect.
This part of the event is one of the most exciting moments of the day, it starts a couple hours before ceremony. Those moments leading up to the ceremony are a very important part of the storytelling process. All the emotions and excitement are increasing from this moment and it is time to start documenting as a behind the scenes. Those intimate real feelings by capturing every detail and relationship between the bride to be and her bridesmaids, as well as the groom and groomsmen each on their own with their closest family members.
At this point a professional wedding photographer will ensure you feel confident and accompanied by witnessing the excitement, photographing beautiful candid moments as well as guiding you to some must have photos with your friends and family while you are becoming the stunning bride to be. Also take care of shooting all wedding details such as wedding dress, jewelry, accessories, the toast cheersing photo and every single important thing you had been carefully prepared for so long specially for this day.
Here are some advices for you to get the best getting ready shoot:
Make sure the shots are taking place after the scheduled hair and makeup time slots, so you and your bridesmaids are beautified for the photos.
Just to be safe, slot in “food time” before or after the photos so you can make sure you’re all cleaned up and have enough time for keeping a relaxed and ready mood.
Feel free to swap out whatever florals may be in the room already for your bouquets so your color palette is present. Just remember to pop your bouquets back in their water-filled containers as soon as you’re done so they don’t start to wilt. The atmosphere should match your overall aesthetic and feel warm and intimate.
