Your wedding is a very special day, which means you’d want to document it from start to end. 

For most people, this means capturing the start of the ceremony up to the last portions of the reception. But it’s actually important to get some pre-wedding photos as well. Taking photos while getting ready for your wedding can really help you remember every part of your special day.

At the Hair and Makeup Chair

It’s time to get your hair done, and you can’t wait to see the final product, but it’s important to remember to get a few photos of yourself at the hair and makeup chair. Whether your stylist wants to do your hair before or after the photos, it’s important to snap a few shots.

Photos you have while in the process of getting ready can really depict the emotions you were feeling during the day and give you something to hold onto for years to come.

Flat Lay of the Dress, Shoes, and Accessories

A flat lay is a photography technique where you position your wedding day accessories and dress on a flat surface in a close-up position. The photos are beautiful and help capture the many details you spent hours looking for. It’s also a fantastic way to show off your shoes and dress in a unique way.

Flat lays are meant to be simple and effortlessly beautiful, and this means you don’t have to spend hours preparing for them. Many couples use the flat lay technique in the lead-up to their wedding day, perhaps on a plane ride or while renting a hotel room.

Reaction When First Putting the Dress On

The moment you first put on your wedding dress is an extremely emotional and exciting one. After months of planning and anticipation, you’re finally getting ready for your dream wedding day. 

This means it’s also really important to get a mix of photos of you trying on your dress and then finally feel confident and ready to walk down the aisle.

The moment you put on your dress is a very emotional one. You’ll want to capture the moment on camera. You can look back on it and remember it for years to come.

Standing Next to the Mirror

Being able to see yourself in the mirror for the first time is one of the most exciting parts of getting ready for your wedding. You may feel like you’re looking at a different person, and that’s the feeling you want to remember. After all, you may not be aware of how beautiful or emotional you look until you see yourself in a photo.  

A Quiet Moment of Reflection Before the Ceremony

You know how the rest of the day is going to go, so there’s really no reason to be nervous. But getting a photo of yourself in a quiet moment of reflection can be extremely important. 

Sometimes the best photos are candid shots, and this means you may not notice the photo is being taken until it’s too late.

It’s best to take some time to reflect on the journey that you’ve been on and all that’s happened up to this point. Taking a photo before the ceremony is one of the biggest milestones of your life. You’ll want to remember this particular moment for years to come.

Final Thoughts

Getting ready for your wedding is an important and memorable experience, which means you’ll want to capture as much of it on camera as possible. 

To give yourself the most photos, you should take photos before the event and during the ceremony. The photos before the event can help you remember the emotions you felt. The photos during the ceremony can help you remember your vows and the way you felt at that moment.
