Photographing Wedding details is one of my favorite parts of the wedding day. I love putting out all the accessories you've carefully chosen and capturing them in unique ways that will showcase all your hard work. This can be quite a process so I have some tips to help this go as smoothly as possible for both the bride and photographer!
I always have my couples make up two boxes; one for the bride, one for the groom. This helps us so much the morning of the wedding. We’re able to swing in, say our hellos and get down to photography business! Having everything organized and in a designated box also ensures important details are not missed! We know you’ve put so much thought and preparation into your wedding day and we strive to capture every detail!
So what should be in the bridal box? I’m glad you asked…
Wedding Gown/hanger if you have something special picked out
Invitations!!!!! This often is not thought about, but these add so much to detail shots! This is also a great way to look back on all the paper goods you care picked out for your wedding.
Jewelry:Wedding bands and engagement rings, necklaces, bracelets, earrings, additional rings,
Shoes: both ceremony and reception (if they have 2 pairs)
Veil Hair pieces Perfume
Momentums, sometimes this will be pictures in the bouquet, hanky, etc.. Anything you can think of that is meaningful on you wedding day!
And for the groom...
Small momentums, sometimes this will be pictures worn on the inside of the suite jacket, jewelry given by a family member or bride, letters, something he plans to keep in his pocket etc.
Preparation is key for ensuring your wedding day goes as smoothly as possible!
