Ready and Waiting

When you wake up on your wedding day, every bride is full of such joy, its endearing. This is a moment you can remember on your 5th or 10th wedding anniversary and reminisce the joy of anticipation you felt before the nuptials.
Your Getting Ready Outfits
Whether you’re planning to wear your pyjamas before you slip into your wedding dress or you’re planning to wear something new for the occasion, be sure to capture the outfit.
Whether everyone is wearing the same outfit, there’s a slight variation between dresses or you’ve gone completely SATC with contrasting bridesmaids dresses, be sure to capture their look.
Pop the bubbly with your bridesmaids for a celebratory snapshot.
Don’t forget your Flower Girls
A moment between the bride and the Flowergirl is a heartfelt moment you won’t want to miss.
Hair & Makeup
Capture your makeup artist and hairstylist at work as they create their masterpiece, capturing every detail from the back view of a ballerina bun to a carefully crafted cat eye.
Just You and Your Dress
A solo photo of the bride in her wedding dress is a must-have photo. If you’ve added any sentimental touches, maybe lyrics embroidered on the veil or an accessory from a deceased loved one, will have you tearing up for years to come.
A Family Moment
The moment your parents first sees you in your wedding dress is full of emotion. Don’t forget to capture this moment.
In Her Shoes

Don’t forget to get a group shot with all the male members of the wedding party and immediate family before the ceremony begins.
