Arguably, bridal preparation can be one of the most fun things to photograph out of the entire wedding day. It’s special to have your closest friends around you and supporting you on your big day. It’s also an excellent time to capture some natural shots of everyone having fun while also taking some posed photos. Down below are some tips for brides to get the most out of their bridal preparation photographs.
The big reveal
An essential photo to have is that of the father seeing his daughter in her wedding dress for the first time. Make sure to organise this with the photographer so they’ll be there to capture the moment. These photos are always treasured by the bride and will create precious memories for when they are looked back on – you’ll remember how emotional and excited you were.
Remember the little ones
Flower girls and page boys are the cutest to photograph and having their shots professionally taken is great for the photo album. Parents love to have these images to look back on and having a relaxed style of photography is ideal for capturing impromptu moments of the kids. It’s probably rare that you have the whole family dressed up at the same time, so make the most of it!
Get matching dressing gowns
Matching dressing gowns for you and your bridesmaids might be one thing you forget about amidst all the other bridal preparations, but it will look fantastic in photos. As well as this, they will make for lovely thank you gifts that they will be able to wear for years to come. Not only do they look great in photographs, but they are practical too. After hair and makeup are done, you don’t want to ruin your look by taking off a t-shirt. Dressing gowns are easy to change out of and not a single strand of hair will be out of place.
