How can I prepare for my bridal session?
I highly recommend doing whatever you are doing for your wedding, also doing for your bridal session. This means a bouquet, makeup, hair, everything! These are the pictures you will print and always look back at.
What should I bring to our bridal session?
Its super helpful to have someone come with you to help hold things, like your mom or sister or friend! They can help with your dress, and making sure hair is in the right place. I would also suggest bringing a bouquet, a jacket in the cold months, water in the hot months, and bobby pins just in case your hair comes loose. Also any lipstick or lipgloss if you think you might want to reapply it.
What should I bring to our engagement session?
Its always fun to bring a blanket for sitting pictures but its not necessary. Considering bringing a change of clothes as well so you can get two outfits in. Just bring your best attitude and be ready to cuddle up with your partner.
What can I expect during our reception?
During wedding receptions I wander around the venue to capture lots of candids of guests, decor, and any group shots you might want with friends and family. I fully expect to be warned before any major events take place, such as cutting the cake, so that I have time to get my lighting set up before it happens.
What group pictures do you take during the wedding?
Shot lists typically include the following (the groups with a star next to it usually only happen with temple weddings)
Do you bring a second shooter to the wedding?
- Entire group *
- Bride's entire family *
- Bride's immediate family
- Bride's siblings
- Bride's parents
- Bride's grandparents
- Bride and Grooms parents
- Groom's entire family *
- Groom's immediate family
- Groom's siblings
- Groom's parents
- Groom's grandparents
- Bridal party
- Any additinoal shots requested by bride/groom
I do not unless it is requested and paid for by the bride and groom.
Should I hire a videographer?
Absolutely!! I have a few videographers I LOVE to work with and I list them on my preferred vendors page
