OKINAWA BRIGHT + VIBRANT PHOTOGRAPHER FOR HAPPY, KIND SOULS
Brides, this one is for you! With all the planning and organizing that goes into making your wedding day perfect, I want to make sure you can take away the absolutely most beautiful memories from that day. After the final song is played and your guest finally (and probably reluctantly) go home, your gifts will be unwrapped and stored, your cake will be thrown away, your dress will be cleaned and stored, your flowers will wilt and all you will be left with is your super handsome husband, your memories, and your photographs!
Today I want to share some tips with you to help create an ideal space for photographing parts of your day. Now I want to mention that this is not always possible, and I promise no matter the situation, you will receive your beautiful images to relive the day with, but these few tips, if implemented can really help enhance your photo experience.
I start every wedding off with a big hug to you & then I swiftly start my “warm up” by photographing your details. Two things you can help your photographer with prepping your details are:
Getting Ready Room
After photographing all your pretty details the next step would be to photograph you getting ready. I have two tips to help create an ideal photography setting for these images.
I am a huge advocate for the First Look because of all the benefits and stress relievers it can bring. For those of you who may be thinking, “Mary, what the heck is a First Look?!” It is a romantic, intimate time for you to see your Groom BEFORE you walk down the aisle. This is a game changing tradition and I highly recommend it for all my couples.
Why you ask? When you decide to do a first look you will get a few things:
You get a moment alone with your soon-to-be-husband in complete PRIVACY! He can actually touch you, hug you, kiss you and tell you how beautiful you look. You can share this moment together, ease each others nerves and it completely takes the pressure off of you both.
You also receive 40% more portraits when you opt for a first look! This is the best option for the couples who are investing in wedding photography because they want intimate & amazing portraits of the two of you. This allows us to double our time together during portraits allowing you to get almost double the amount of photos of you two in your gallery!
You get to hang out with your Groom for most of your wedding day! Seriously, how awesome is that? Instead of seeing him at the ceremony & reception hours only, now you are literally spending your first day of forever, almost completely together! How amazing is that?
So just mull those thoughts over while you start deciding on locations & timelines for your wedding day! That’s all for this week’s tips.
