Why Every Bride Should Have Getting Ready Photos
I LOVE getting ready photos. Many of my bride and grooms to be struggle when it comes to deciding whether or not to do getting ready photos. “What’s so special about them?” They may ask. I’ve got the answers below with three reasons why I absolutely recommend having getting ready photos!
1. They Capture the Sweet Moments
Getting ready photos are an amazing way to tell the complete story of your wedding day from beginning to end. From the second you arrive on your wedding day, every instance of the building anticipation and overwhelming joy you experience will be captured for you and your soon-to-be-spouse to look back on for the rest of your lives. This time also allows for sweet moments with the ones you care about most to be captured on film. I love catching cherished time a bride shares with her family and friends on camera before one of the best moments of her life.
2. They Give You Extra Time to Get Comfortable in Front of The Camera
Another great thing about getting ready photos is they give you more time to get your camera jitters out! If you are someone who feels extra anxious whenever a camera is near, the extended exposure to the equipment will help you get so comfortable in front of the camera you won’t even notice it is there! By the time you have your first look if you choose to do one, or your ceremony you’ll be at ease and jitter-free.
3. They Show Off Special Details
These photos highlight all of the special details you included in your wedding day to represent you and your wedding style. Many of these details such as your dress, shoes, or veil are items you probably won’t wear again so you’ll want to remember the intricate details that made each item so special to your wedding story! In 20 years you’ll love being able to see all of the details that you worked so hard to collect for your day.
Getting ready photos allow more opportunities to capture sweet intimate moments with your loved ones, while getting you comfortable in front of the camera AND showing off your gorgeous wedding details. I hope this helped tip the scale in the battle of to do or skip getting ready photos!
