Wedding Photo ideas: Getting Ready
When considering wedding photography for your big day, one of the questions bride and grooms ask themselves is whether they should include coverage of the bridal preparations and possibly the groom getting ready also.
Some feel that photographing during the bridal preparations may be intrusive, but this is really not the case. The wedding photographer will photograph the completion of the hair and make up and will step away to allow the bride to put on her dress and continue shooting to the final lacing of the back of the dress.
Photographing the groom’s preparation – if in a different location e.g.- will require a second shooter. Capturing the groom’s preparations adds to the full reportage of the day especially when it comes to telling the complete story of the wedding day in an album.
Photographing the bridal preparations is a chance for some fantastic portraits with personality
! Especially capturing all the little details that the bride has spent much time planning, such as the bridal jewellery, perfume, shoes, tiara and wedding bouquet, not to mention the makeup!
Here is a selection of some of my favourite getting ready photographs. Enjoy!
