Preparation is Everything | Timeless ‘Getting Ready’ Photos

By, November 12, 2013

There seems to be a common misconception about getting ready photos and what they entail. We’ve seen comments across the web like, ‘I don’t want a bunch of photos of me brushing my teeth!’ Trust us, neither do we :) Instead of documenting your daily hygiene, our ‘getting ready’ photos capture the excitement, joy, and anticipation leading up to the wedding itself.

From sentimental to fun, check out our top 4 favorite types of ‘getting ready’ moments:

1. Proud Parent Moments

The sheer joy and happiness written across your parent’s face as they help you with the finishing touches are worth more than a thousand words.

3. Best Friend Bonding

The preparation before the wedding is like gearing up for a hot night out with your best friends, only multiplied by 100. How often are you able to gather all of your favorite people together in one room? Take advantage of this time and spend the entire day together getting dressed, sharing memories and toasting to a lifetime of happiness!

4. Final Look

You’ve spent the entire morning prepping, and you finally get to look in the mirror at the stunning finished product. This is the¬†perfect time for a few glamour shots of your overall look, from hair to makeup to attire, before you walk down the aisle.
