I love the mornings on wedding days. I love getting to spend time with the bride and the women closest to her while they get ready – you see the friendships, the closeness between mom and daughter….so much love and excitement and anticipation. I just love weddings.
Tip for brides: To get the best possible results from your “getting ready” photos, get ready by a window, or in a room with lots of windows, and face the light (see the photo below where she puts on her earrings – my favorite). Also, put your dress on near a window. Hotel rooms or rooms in houses are often dark (darker than you think since your eyes adjust), so utilizing natural window light will help make for fantastic photos.
These are shots from the last wedding I’m catching up on:
