Have your dress ready for photographs; please leave it in the bag to keep it nice and safe. It’s a great start if its hung on door frame or at a window. It tends to be the first thing I shoot on the day so having access it to is easily is appreciated. Please remember that the dress will be photographed in its hanger, if possible please have it already placed on a white or personalised hanger. It really makes a big difference to plastic hangers!
If you want me to capture specific details; shoes, perfume, jewellery and stationery please leave it out for me. I won’t have to interrupt your preparations that way.
Usually the Make Up artist will ask for you to sit next to a window, this is absolutely perfect! I will then be able to take some lovely light, natural images. Please request this if not – a dark corner is never a good outcome.
A clearer room helps you and your bridal party to stay relaxed. Please be aware of the room around you, I am going to be capturing Bridal prep in my natural, minimalistic way. In order for this to work, It would be great to have the curtains open and if possible keep the room tidy – I completely understand how hard this but It won’t be possible to photoshop clothes and clutter out.
Do you want a reveal of your dress with your bridesmaids or family members?
Make sure you let your family know what time you want them ready in your room. I can help organise your bridesmaid and speak to family beforehand but do let me know if you are wanting a reveal.
Wait until I arrive to hand out gifts to bridesmaids and family. I can capture those lovely moments.
ENJOY! Having some time with your girls and family in the morning is wonderful. Enjoy every single second.
