Getting Ready



Getting ready portraits for the bride and grrom are an inportant staple of how we tell your wedding story. I love the entie process of those getting ready moments. Ive gathered a gew tips to make your photos cleaner looking, easy to photograph and fun to be involved in!

Natural light

 Make sure your getting ready space is full of gorgeous natural light! Pick the room with the greatest amount of window light or space and that will be perfect. This makes a WORLD of difference in your images! We promise!


Bridal Details Ready to Fire

If possible, try to have all bridal details together before we arrive. This will make the detail shots more efficient. We love flat lays! The more heirlooms the better. Remember to ask your florist for loose blooms!

Keep it Clean

Please keep the area where you plan to get ready clear of trash, bags, snacks, etc.

Rent an AirBnB

The best way to have a clean slate is to create one! Rent and AirBnB , a suite in a luxrious spacious hotel or contact your local realtor for a day rental! This creates a nuteral, clean and creative space for getting ready images!
