Capturing your Wedding Details

Many couples often inquire about my approach to wedding preparations, particularly how I handle the intricacies of Wedding Details. Let me walk you through the process. A few days prior to the wedding, I visit the homes of the bride and groom to familiarize myself with the surroundings. In case preparations are scheduled at a hotel, I arrive early in the morning to acquaint myself with the premises. On your wedding day, I reach the bride’s house in the early morning. After exchanging greetings, I am guided to the room where your dress and other intricate details will be, initiating the photography process promptly.

This process typically spans an hour. It’s crucial that all items intended for the wedding, such as wedding rings, crowns, a single stone, jewelry, and shoes, are gathered in one place to ensure accurate photography. Streamlining the organization of everything in a tray or box facilitates seamless transitions between different locations. I also recommend assigning someone, be it your mother, father, maid of honor, bridesmaid, or a close friend, to oversee all the details, enhancing communication efficiency. I advise coordinating with your florist beforehand to deliver some flowers to your preparation area shortly before my arrival. This allows me to capture their freshness, combining them with your jewelry, shoes, and invitations.

For the Bride:

Many of these items will (or should) be present already, but a few items on this list take a little extra planning in order to include them in your wedding day detail photos. Here is a list of the details I’ll photograph whenever they’re available to me. I recommend bringing all of these that are applicable, plus any other special touches that are important to you:
  1. Dress and veil
  2. Invitation suite (2 copies of the full suite, if possible)
  3. Shoes
  4. Jewelry
  5. Perfume
  6. Something old, new, borrowed, blue
  7. ALL 3 rings – if all 3 are with you, your photo team will be able to photograph the full set. We’ll have time to get them to whoever will be holding them afterward.
  8. Bouquet and/or loose florals – many florists are great about including a few loose flowers/greenery for styled detail photos. It’s also important to coordinate that these florals arrive by the designated time that these detail photos will happen.
  9. Any extra ribbon, accents, or items of significance that represent the day
  10. Any gifts or notes from one another

For the Groom:

Likewise, for grooms, many of their photo elements should already be available to be photographed.

  1. Suit
  2. Tie
  3. Cuff links
  4. Watch
  5. Cologne
  6. Shoes and socks
  7. Handkerchief
  8. Belt/suspenders
  9. Boutonniere
  10. Vow book
  11. Any extra ribbon, accents, or items of significance that represent the day
  12. Any gifts or notes from one another
