I love capturing all the little details you've carefully chosen to be a part of your wedding day!
Once I arrive at your wedding, I'm always early and I like to take time to say hello and check if there's anything you need me to help you with or any last minute changes. Then I can take up to 45 minutes to capture and style your details. If you can choose a getting ready location filled with natural light, that's amazing. And please keep your space free from clutter as much as possible (or just ask your girls to do some quick tidying up when I get there)!
It would be wonderful if you could put all of your rings, jewellery, shoes, veil, perfume, invitations and other keepsakes together in one spot for me. You can unwrap your dress but don't worry about styling it - if there's a pretty spot to hang it, I'll do it! If not, I'll just photograph the dress details while you're wearing it.
Here's a checklist for you to consider for your flatlay details photo.
BRIDAL DETAILS CHECKLIST
Rings (cleaned - both engagement and wedding bands)
Invitation Suite ( 2 full sets with envelopes + stamps)
Any other paper stationary you may have like Order of the Day cards
Any other sentimental keepsakes you would like to include
I once had a bride bring her grandmother's hand mirror. This is completely optional - but if you have something sentimental you'd like styled with your details, I love including family heirlooms in our detail shots.
Bonus: I'd love to have a few cuts of the florals you'll be using throughout your wedding day. If your florist will supply me a small bucket of extra pieces so I can incorporate those in your detail shots, that would be marvellous!
GROOM DETAILS CHECKLIST
Socks (if they're special)
Tie or Bow Tie
Anything else he'll have that is special or sentimental.
When I can, I always try to take a photo of your rings while you're getting ready. If possible, try to have your engagement ring cleaned or clean it yourself. To clean at home, soak your ring in warm water with dishwashing soap for 20 to 40 minutes. Then gently brush the stone with a soft toothbrush, rinse and repeat if needed.
I hope you find this helpful xx ❤️
