One of my favorite parts of the wedding day is shooting the bridal details! It’s an important part of the story and I love having time to shoot the dress, shoes, jewelry, invitations, etc. These shots allow me to get warmed up for the day and get my creative juices flowing! I normally like to allow at least 45 minutes to an hour for this part of the day. I photograph a bride’s details in a way that matches and showcases the style of the entire wedding day. So, in some ways, the details really set the stage of the look of the whole day and I love having ample time to stylize and shoot everything from the dress to the shoes to grandma’s pearls!
Some of the most common bridal details are shoot include:
rings (all three)
Below are some creative items that I have seen in detail shots:
Ribbon Bouquet Greenery Ring Box(es)
Anything Monogrammed Clutch Perfume / Cologne
Hair Pieces Locket Written Vows
GATHER THE GOODS
If possible, collect all of your details before I arrive (more like the week before!) so that I can begin quickly have more time for some “getting ready” shots of you and your girls!
KEEP ALL THREE RINGS
The most common detail missing when I arrive is the rings! After I greet you, I’ll grab the box of detail elements and get to work! So please make sure all three rings are in there so I don’t have to go searching for them from moms or officiants!
