The whole day begins with DETAILS! This is one of my favorite parts of the wedding day because it allows me to prepare and get really creative! It warms me up for the rest of the day. I photograph a bride’s details in a way that matches and showcases the style of the entire wedding day. So in some ways the details set the stage for the look of the whole wedding and I love being able to style and shoot everything from the decor, to the jewelry,
to Grandma’s handkerchief!
Here’s a list of the most common details I shoot. I ask brides to gather any details they have before I arrive so that I can walk in, say hello, give you lots of hugs and then begin with all the goodies! (And, please tell your mom that I promise to take GREAT care of the dress!)
- Veil / Hair Pieces
- Rings (All three)
- Bouquets & Bout (Ask your florist for extra blooms so that I can use them during styling!)
- Invitation Suite (This also includes your save-the-date, envelopes, etc.)
- Heirloom Pieces
- Borrowed & Blue
Here’s a list just for your groom. Just like I ask brides to have all the details ready for me, I will ask the same of grooms so that my second shooter can start right away with his details.
- Cuff Links
- Matching Groomsmen Socks
Having all of these key elements in advance saves lots of time and ensures nothing is forgotten about. It makes my job easier and allows me to create the perfect series of detail shots!
Every little detail counts. Happy Planning!
