It’s the morning of your wedding! You’re with all your best friends and closest family members (hopefully with a mimosa in hand!) and your hair and makeup team is working it’s magic. This part of the day holds so much anticipation and excitement (and is personally, one of my favorite times of the day to capture). Here are a few tips to help make this part of the day run smoothly:

1. A getting ready room with a window

Beautiful light is something photographers look for first when arriving at any location. Getting ready in a room with at least one big window can make all the difference in your photographs. While it’s possible to make any room work, certain photography styles are definitely better suited to working with natural light. Aside from photography, your makeup artists will absolutely love having natural light!

2. All the details in one place

The first items to be photographed while you finish getting ready are all the special details, like the rings, shoes and dress. In order for this to go smoothly, it is a huge help to have all of these details together in one place. This way, no one has to disrupt you and your girls to go searching for everything!

3. Bridesmaids Shirts

There are a lot of different options out there that are super cute! Whether its tank tops, collared shirts or robes, these adorable getting ready outfits photograph so well. Plus, you can include them as part of your gift to your girls!
