Many brides make plans for many months before their wedding, yet don’t always have time to enjoy their day. So I love being the ‘second pair’ of eyes for the bride, paying special attention to the colors and accessories chosen for their wedding day- especially the bridal details!
Bridal details are extremely important because they help set the album spread.. and tell the story of the day even better.
It is good to schedule ample time for this part, because they set the stage for the look of the entire wedding!
The best time to shoot the details are at the beginning of the day, while hair and makeup is still being done… right after I arrive and give the bride a big hug! This allows me to get warmed up for the day, and my creative juices flowing!
It is best to have any details the bride wants photographed gathered in one place before hand. It keeps me organized, I can start in right away, and I get the time for some beautiful “getting ready” shots with you and your bridesmaids. It is also really important that the bouquet is there early in the day, because it is the highlight of the details! Another tip is requesting a few loose florals from the florist to style and tie-in all the pieces.
There will also be a consistent look or theme throughout the wedding, such as barn wood or succulents (my favorite!), so be sure to set some of them aside as well (anything from the dress to grandma’s handkerchief… all the little parts matter)!
Let’s add this all up (this is my kind of math!:)
Beautiful details + loose florals and wedding theme = Stunning details shots and amazing album spreads! Here is a quick list of details to bring:
- Vail and Hair Pieces
- Rings (all three)
- Invitation Suite
- Borrowed and Blue
- And Pro tip: Extra Loose Florals (requested from the florist)
Soon, we’ll go over some important details for the Groom. His details will not only continue to create a beautiful album spread, but will significantly help tell the story of your wedding day!
Wanna pin it? ^^ Me too!
