Before we arrive to photograph your preparation ensure you have all your items placed to one side either in a box or all together on a table. For example your shoes, jewellery, flowers, invitations, perfume, heirlooms and so on. This allows us to get straight to work shooting the details so you can continue enjoying being pampered.

To capture beautiful images of your dress and you getting dressed, keep the area around the main window clean and clutter free.



Purchase a beautiful hanger for that dream dress



If your dress has lots of buttons a crochet hook can work wonders in getting you dressed on time. Ask your seamstress or Bridal Boutique what size hook you will need to purchase for your gown.



Make sure your ‘Wedding Day Timeline’ leaves you enough time to have some portraits taken with everyone who helped and spent time with you getting ready.

Before you leave for the ceremony take a minute for yourself, read over those vows take a deep breath and love every minute of your best day ever!
