For a lot of wedding packages, let's say 8 hours, there is room to do getting ready photos. They are so special and intimate and also call for better storytelling on your wedding gallery. Here are some things you could do to get the most out of it:

Don't Forget

Getting ready checklist for your photographer

The night before your wedding day make sure you have these things put away separately to give to your photographer:

  • The Rings
  • Shoes
  • Any special items such as family heirlooms
  • Your Wedding Invite
  • Perfume
  • Vow books (if applicable)
  • Your Bouquet, or ask your florist if she could give a handful of loose ones for the photos!
  • Jewelry

Your Makeup

There is no better prop than letting your photographer come in a little before you are done getting ready to get those beautiful last touches on camera!



for more detailed and cute dress photos! (don't use a regular hanger!!)

starting at $15

Somewhere cute to put your rings

Great for the ceremony for easier access (knowing it won't fall lol) but also super special for you both to have somewhere to keep your rings!

Starting at $15

Robes/Matching Sets

Have someone special help you get ready

In most cases, the parents, the maid of honor, the best man, or siblings could help with these details.

if not just have someone who truly means a lot to you help you with the last touches. Zipping the dress, making sure the tie is perfectly straight & more!

For your Groomsmen

Of course not every bridal party is the same. So choose a gift that represents them for who they are. In this case, the groom decided to gift his groomsmen engraved flasks to party with!
