Super excited for this weekends weddings and as i’m getting my gear packed, confirming details, and checking in with my couples, i thought i’d share some bridal prep advice for all those brides out there reading this - about what you can do to prep for your wedding day that will surely make your photographer love you to pieces and ensure you get amazing getting ready photos! ❤️⠀

on the day of your wedding: ⠀
- make sure to have a clean copy of your save the date and invitations handy in your bridal suite where you’ll be getting ready- including any envelopes.⠀
- any pretty details such as perfume, jewelry, hair accessories, shoes, special notes or cards, or anything that you would like to be photographed, should be set aside - all together in one place- ready for us to style and shoot ⠀
- have both you and your future husbands rings together with you, so that we can capture your rings while you’re getting ready⠀
- try and keep the bed clear of any and all items, and neat and tidy, so that we have a nice clean canvas for those adorable group shots in matching robes, etc... ⠀
- designate one corner of the room to be “ the dumping ground” for everyone’s stuff 😉 the last thing you will want to see in your images are you or your bridesmaids phones, purses, clothes, etc... keeping everything all together in one corner gives us plenty of room to shoot different angles and backdrops without clutter ❤️ ⠀
-have your gowns ready to go, on a pretty hanger ( no plastic ) and outside of the bag... hanging up, so that we can quickly grab them and find the ideal spot for your “dress shot” ⠀
(this includes all bridesmaids dresses) ⠀
after all.... you spent a lot of time choosing every single last detail for your wedding day... so if you can follow the suggestions above, i promise, your photos will thank you for it!! ❤️⠀
happy bridal prep y’all 🙌🏻😘❤️🙌🏻⠀

“a soulmate is an ongoing connection with another individual that the soul picks up again in various times and places over lifetimes. we are attracted to another person at a soul level not because that person is our unique complement, but because by being with that individual, we are somehow provided with an impetus to become whole ourselves.” – edgar cayce.
jesse and shannon... you guys are ✨✨ m a g i c ✨✨... end of story...❤️
