As a wedding photographer, I have had the privilege of capturing some of the most intimate and emotional moments of a couple’s big day. One of the most special parts of a wedding day is the getting ready process, where the bride and groom spend the morning preparing for their ceremony. In this blog post, I will share my insights and tips on how to make the most of your getting ready time and create beautiful photographs.
Choose a Spacious and Bright Room
The first step to creating stunning getting ready photos is choosing the right space. A spacious and well-lit room will make a huge difference in the quality of your photographs. When choosing a getting ready location, look for a room with large windows or a balcony that will let in plenty of natural light. A clutter-free space will also make it easier for the photographer to move around and capture different angles.

To ensure a stress-free morning, it’s important to plan ahead. Make sure you have all the necessary items ready for your photographer, such as your wedding dress, shoes, jewelry, and any other details you want captured. Having these items set aside in advance will save time and prevent last-minute scrambling.
Get Your Hair and Makeup Done Professionally
Having your hair and makeup done professionally will not only make you look your best but will also make a big difference in the quality of your getting ready photos. Professional hair and makeup artists know how to create a look that will photograph beautifully and last throughout the day. They can also help you relax and enjoy the getting ready process.

Include Your Bridal Party
Including your bridal party in the getting ready photos is a great way to capture fun and candid moments. Consider giving your bridesmaids matching robes or pajamas to wear while getting ready, which will add a cohesive and stylish element to your photographs.

Capture the Details
As a photographer, I love capturing the little details that make each wedding unique. Some of the details that make for great photos include the wedding rings, the bride’s shoes, the groom’s cufflinks, and the wedding invitation suite. These details help tell the story of the day and make for beautiful and memorable photographs.

Relax and Enjoy the Moment
Finally, remember to relax and enjoy the getting ready process. This is a special time to spend with your loved ones before the ceremony, so don’t stress too much about the photos. Trust your photographer to capture the moments as they unfold and just enjoy the moment.
In conclusion, the getting ready process is an important part of the wedding day and offers many opportunities for beautiful and memorable photographs. By choosing the right space, planning ahead, getting professional hair and makeup done, including your bridal party, capturing the details, and enjoying the moment, you can create stunning photos that will last a lifetime.
