Over the next few weeks I’m going to take a look back at last season and share some of my favorite images. Today I’m kicking it off with getting ready images – I love this period of the day because there is so much anticipation but also people are fairly relaxed. I usually try to be with the couple for about an hour to an hour and a half of getting ready. It helps me get to know the bridal party and family and for them to get comfortable with me.
Love this shot of beautiful Katie as she gets dressed.
Katie’s sisters helped her don her gown
Another sister shot this time with lots of laughter from Kami & Jeff’s wedding
Michaela’s family all hung out while she was getting her hair and makeup done – even her future Husband Andy was there – it was really nice.
My eye keeps going back and forth between Laura & the little girl in the painting – she got ready in the living room of her family’s home
Jay got ready in another part of the house. It’s fun for me to hang out with the guys a bit because often logistically it doesn’t work out as they are dressing off-site.
I LOVE this moment of Laura & her Mom as Laura dons her dress
Sometimes one needs a little help with their bowtie as here with Lila’s Brother – I still need to learn how to tie one!
And corset backs really take some doing! Good thing there was space as Darlene was dressing!
