Getting ready for your wedding is a really memorable occasion, so part two of my series on how to get fantastic wedding photos will cover the activities of this busy morning, and give you a few tips to get great wedding photos.
Bride: Getting ready photos often cover the final stages of you and your bridesmaids getting your hair and makeup done. We love to get some great photos of the bride and her bridesmaids having a glass of champagne and having some fun. We then cover the bride getting into her dress, lacing up the gown, and the attachment of any veil or hairpiece.
Groom: The groom and the groomsmen just need to be showered, shaved, hair done, and have pants on by the time the photography team arrive. The rest can be done on camera. Buttoning up his shirt, adjusting a collar, putting cufflinks on, putting a tie on, placing his jacket on, and attachment of the boutonniere to his lapel.
Following the getting dressed portion of photos is individual portraits of the bride/groom, group photos of the bridesmaids/groomsmen with the bride/groom and then any family photos. Whilst there is always family photos taken after the ceremony, the getting ready period also offers the opportunity to get some more candid and different family combination photos.
