Take Some Time to Love Yourself
The Big Day has arrived and it's time to feel your best. Take a long look in the mirror and have a moment!
I love photographing the pre wedding excitement. There can be nerves but this is a beautiful part of the journey to capture and you'll quickly get used to me working in the background. I'll be calm and bring good energy. Finding inner peace before taking the plunge means you'll be present and in the moment when you do.
Wedding PReparation PHOTOGRAPHY Tips
I always recommend you aim to finish getting ready in good time. Enjoy a glass of bucks fizz instead of last minute dress stress. This also means I'm able to photograph you in your finished state before I move on to get to your ceremony, ideally half an hour before you.
I do occasionally collaborate with other experienced photographers when there are important moments going on in different locations. They might also be beneficial if you have a lot of details you'd like captured, from your order of service to flowers, rings, shoes, centrepieces and wider venue shots. Of course I'll capture a lot of this but my focus will be the people, their interaction with the environment and the details that catch their attention. If you'd like to explore second photographer options, please raise it early on and I'll look at who might be available.
Photographing the getting ready can be a good way to get used to me working. Some couples still prefer I start at the venue which is absolutely fine - I like to be there with half an hour to spare in any case.
