Ideal amount of time for us to spend photographing here: 1 to 2 hours.
The getting ready portion is one of our most favorite parts of the day. It will set in motion hopefully how the rest of the day will go. One thing I have to point out right away is this, make up artist and especially hair dressers are notorious for making the bride late. You'll hear things said like, "the wedding can't start without the bride" and while they are right this is just not a great situation. You running late pushes back or totally takes away the chance for us to get awesome photos. If you have all of your bridesmaids with you and if time allows, I like to photograph them getting ready as well. The more details you have; the longer it will take to photograph them in a creative manner. Below are the things we would like to be ready when we get to your room but do keep in mind that I don't need you to set them up for me. You just need to have some or all of these things for me to photograph.
