Photos of brides and grooms getting ready are some of my favorites from the wedding day. I love the look on a brides face when she gets into her dress, takes a moment and realizes she’s about to get married. It’s usually followed by squealing girls and possibly some Kleenex grabbing for tears. For the guys, it’s a different story. There are definitely no tears but there are a lot of beers! They are still equally fun and important pictures. I know my pictures me getting ready with my mom and my bridal party are some of my favorites!
Pat always goes with the guys in the morning and I always go with the girls. It makes everyone more at ease. If they can help it, girls don’t want a guy in the room while they’re in their underoos and getting dressed! When I first arrive I’ll gather everything the bride will be wearing that day. This includes her dress, shoes, jewelry, veil, perfume etc. We also ask that the rings, invitations and any other special items are there as well so I can get shots of them with some of the other details. The details help tell the story of the day; especially in a wedding album! Every moment in the day is so important, I know Pat and I love being there to capture all of them!
