I enjoy being a part of bridal preparation before the wedding ceremony. I like the excitement and anticipation of one of the most important events in the bride and groom's life. During the getting ready portion of the day, I typically photograph the bride and bridesmaids' final touches of make-up and hair, their candid interactions, and maybe some photos in their robes having a glass of champagne. The must-have photos of the bridal details I take during the getting ready include the wedding gown, veil/hairpiece, shoes, jewelry, garter, wedding bands, engagement ring, and bouquet, as well as the bride's something borrowed and/or something blue if it's not covered by one of those other items. I always tell the bride to bring the wedding invitation, save the date for the wedding, including envelopes because it makes a nice backdrop to place the rings on and it's a nice addition to all the bridal details. The icing on the cake is if I have extra flowers available from the florist to include in these photos. The sky is the limit to how you can arrange all these items and I like being creative and making sure it all looks great!
