Getting ready wedding photos
Photography coverage before your wedding ceremony starts.
Groom getting ready
We usually spend up to 1.5 hours with the groom, groomsmen and family.
How should the groom & groomsmen be prepared for the getting ready photo shoot?
By the time we arrive, guys should have on:
The vest, cufflinks and accessories can be done on camera. The family should also be dressed and ready by the time we arrive.

Bride getting ready
We typically spend up to 2 hours of photography time with the bride, bridesmaids and family.
How should the bride & bridesmaids be prepared for getting ready photo shoot?
By the time we arrive, girls should have:
- hair & makeup completely done
- robes or dress on
- bride's family ready for family portraits or dress reveal (with parents, grandparents and/or bridesmaids).
Hair & makeup
We usually don’t photograph hair and makeup being done. If these shots are important to you, we can document this part for you as well or perhaps take a few photos of final touch-ups however we found that photos of makeup being done are not the most effective use of the photographer's time.
Getting ready detail shots
We prefer to take getting ready detail shots with "soul " which means our detailed shots of the dress, shoes, jewellery, veil and bouquet include the bride in those photos - where possible.
Bridal Boudoir Photography
Please note, that we are family-friendly photographers and do not photograph nudity. We can however photograph the bride in her bridal lingerie, veil and garter in an elegant and respectful way. Available on request. Allow 15-30 minutes.
