Think of your wedding day as a captivating story, and the morning preparations are where it all begins. It’s the part filled with anticipation, true emotions, jokes, smiles, and yes, even happy tears!
Picture this: the bride popping champagne with her fabulous girlfriends, dancing around, gazing out the window, slipping on sparkly shoes, and adding the finishing touch to her lipstick while stealing glances in the mirror. These moments are not only gorgeous to capture, but they also infuse your morning with fun and excitement, guaranteed to make you smile!
Now, let’s talk about the importance of being prepared for your big day. By now, you’ve probably booked all your vendors, and it’s their time to shine too. One crucial aspect is your makeup and hair artists – they are true magicians! I can’t stress enough how vital it is to have a trial run with them beforehand. Not only will you look stunning, but you’ll also get a chance to ensure they’re the perfect fit for your wedding day glam. Trust me; it’s worth every penny!
Pro tip: Schedule your makeup and hair artists to arrive early on your wedding day. The process takes time, and you don’t want to risk feeling rushed or stressed. Trust me, I’ve seen it happen! Getting ready early allows you to capture those beautiful morning pictures in your silky pajamas or robe, toasting with a glass of champagne, surrounded by your best friends, mom, and sisters. Don’t miss out on these precious moments!
When I arrive, I’ll have the chance to introduce myself, scout the location for unique photo ideas, and document the behind-the-scenes moments of your makeup and hair transformation. I’ll also capture stunning shots of your bridal details, like your dress, veil, shoes, jewelry, bouquet, perfume, and wedding invitations. So, make sure to set them aside the night before, giving yourself peace of mind as you sit back and enjoy the beauty process.
Oh, and those matching robes you and your bridesmaids will be wearing? Steaming or ironing them the day before will ensure everyone looks elegant and picture-perfect. Trust me; it’s a small effort for a big impact!
And now, the most exciting part – putting on your wedding dress! Allow ample time for this step, especially if your dress is a showstopper with a million buttons. We don’t want any unnecessary stress. Once you’re all dressed up, we can take amazing, relaxed portraits of you in your full bridal glory. We’ll also capture fun group photos with your fabulous girlfriends and any family members present. Candid moments will naturally unfold, adding depth to your wedding story.
