Top Tips For Getting Ready Photos On Your Wedding Day

‘GETTING READY’ photos are so crucial to storytelling.

Here are some of my top tips to keep in mind when choosing a getting ready location.

I prioritize to capture all the little details, the space and lighting does matter!

Lots of Natural Light

1. Choose an open and calm space that has plenty of windows and lots of natural light. This is important because of how quickly everything happens during this time, your wedding photographer will be moving around to capture movements candidly and will need a room that already provides beautiful natural light.

2. Look into Airbnb’s/Cabins/Luxury suites that offers a distinctive space or room that suits your style and is transparent with your wedding theme or overall style. If you choose to get ready at home, choose the biggest and brightest room in the house and transform it to a sacred space.


3. Communicate with your bridesmaids to help keep the getting ready room tidy and let your significant other know ahead of time to work it out with their squad. Make sure to have a clean room when your photographer arrives! An elegant and distraction free room will help you stay organized and give your photographer more time to focus on capturing all the little details.

4. My last pro tip — Get ready on the same property as your partner. This may be tough to coordinate but with a wedding planner’s help and working on your timeline, getting ready on the same property will leave out stalled time. Sometimes, photographers are stuck waiting for the arrival of parties to continue photographing the wedding day, so for a smooth day, I highly recommend this!
