Bridal preparation wedding photography
Wedding photos of the bride in the morning of the wedding. Not everyone likes the sound of a photographer being around for bridal prep, but for me its not just about the getting ready shots because that time also gives me a chance to introduce myself to Mums, Dads, Bridesmaids so very quickly everyone knows me. I will fit between everything you need to do and photographing 100s of weddings has given me a good idea of the timings so I can also help by keeping an eye on those for you.
Its not just about the people perhaps shots of the dress and shoes before they get put on, This is also a good time to get shots of the wedding flowers as this is when they are going to be at their very best because later they do get bashed, the button holes also will tend to get crushed from all those hugs.
Perhaps you are getting ready at your parents’ house, so that’s also a good time to get some shots with them when everyone is ready or the bridesmaids before you all head off to the ceremony.
Once I have some wedding prep photographs and before the party leaves I then like to catch up with the groom for some shots with the chaps before the bride arrives, these could be at the Church or wedding venue or even in the pub before the wedding if timings will allow. see here The Groom
