One of my favorite parts to a wedding day is shooting the details. It’s my warm-up time before I run a marathon of creating gorgeous photos for my couples! But in order to shoot the details, I need everything together. So today, we’re talking about your Bridal Detail Checklist and what you need to have gathered for me to photograph the first chapter of your wedding day love story.
Bridal Detail Checklist
- The Dress!
This is a given, right? It’s something that every single Bride has given thought to, even before they were engaged!
- The Hanger
You have a beautiful dress, give that beautiful dress a hanger to hang on for photos. There’s nothing worse then a white plastic hanger holding your dress up. You can find sellers on Etsy or you can DIY
- Your Veil
If your veil has a beautiful trim around the edge, this is always fun to photograph as an accent
- The Rings – all three of them!
In order to properly photograph the rings, I need you, the BRIDE, to have all three rings in the morning when I get there. I know that before the ceremony the best man needs the wedding bands, but to get the ring shots that you’ll cherish forever, I need them first thing in the morning.
It’s SO important that your florist delivers your bouquets and boutonnières to your getting ready location before I arrive. Bonus points if you ask your florist to include a couple single stem flowers to add an extra touch to your detail shots
I love photographing these! It’s the first time your guests see that is related to your wedding. First tangible item they receive, and the first hint of how awesome your day is going to be! They’re pretty crucial to this bridal detail checklist.
- Perfume bottle
I bought a special bottle just for the wedding! And I only use it on special occasions. Brings back all the warm and fuzzies of the wedding day for me
If you pack the items on the bridal detail checklist together, it’ll be easier to keep track of everything once I show up. Pack these items as your pack your bridal bag and life will be a little less stressful the morning of!
