5 Tips for Stunning Getting Ready Images

Updated: Mar 25


So you want those gorgeous getting ready photographs in your wedding gallery, eh?


I don't blame you! Getting ready photos are some of my favorites!


They not only showcase all of your details you worked so hard to put together, but they are a little glimpse into your lives just hours before you officially become the new Mrs. + Mrs., or Mr. + Mr., or Mr. + Mrs đź–¤


If you want stunning getting ready images, just follow these 5 simple rules outlined below!




PREPARE YOUR ROOM

pick a location that is spacious, full of light + reflects your aesthetic

1 - Lighting is key! Try to choose a space that has ample natural lighting


2 - Keeping your space as clutter free + clean as you can is so important! It can be a tough task, I know, with so many people getting ready in one spot. You can designate a corner or closet to confine the mess to one area

GET ALL OF YOUR DETAILS IN ONE PLACE


3 - Gather the items below so your photographer can get to them quickly

  • Dress

  • Veil / hair pieces

  • Shoes

  • Jewelry

  • Rings (all 3)

  • Ring box

  • Garter

  • Bouquet

TIMING TIPS

4 - 30 mins | details are photographed - make sure to have them in one spot for your photographer

20 - 30 mins | getting into your dress, putting on jewelry, veil, shoes + any finishing touches (if your dress is more complicated with lots of buttons or corset, plan to take a little longer)
