Tips for Capturing Your "Getting Ready" Experience on Your Wedding Day

With your wedding day quickly approaching, surely you are buzzing with excitement. You have likely imagined all your crucial wedding moments, such as your walk down the aisle, reciting your vows, tossing your bouquet, your first dance, and even the touching toasts that your loved ones will give.

But, you absolutely do not want to forget about one crucial part of your wedding day that will leave you with some of your fondest memories; getting ready with your bridesmaids.

Here at Joseph Hummel Photography, we believe that every bride should enjoy her time getting ready for her big day. That’s why we have gathered a few tips for capturing your own “getting ready” experience on your wedding day. To learn how you can have a complete wedding album, filled with lovely photos of you and your girls, feel free to continue reading:

  • No messes needed. There is no doubt that getting ready for such an important event can be hectic. Makeup, curling irons, rollers, gowns, shoes, snacks, and so much more will be spread around your space. Showcasing these messes within your wedding photos will create an ambiance for each, which may be less than desirable. Be sure to keep your space as clean as possible so you can have impeccable getting ready photos.

  • Enjoy yourselves. Genuine fun and enjoyment will always shine brighter than a posed smile. Don’t be afraid to enjoy yourselves and live in the moment. The real smiles, laughter, and excitement will be highlighted beautifully within your photos. These will be the photos you will want to display, and certainly cherish.

  • Capture a toast! Before you walk down the aisle, pour some mimosas for you and your ladies and toast to your upcoming nuptials! This will create a festive photo full of vibrancy. In addition, if you are all in matching robes or t-shirts, you will certainly showcase some cohesion, which will only add fun and personalization to your wedding photo collection.

Every portion of your wedding day is important, but getting ready is a special time for you and your girls. These tips will help ensure that you enjoy your time getting ready, as well as your photos. Here at Joseph Hummel Photography, as a wedding photographer in Incline Village, we would be honored to capture every aspect of your wedding day.
