We have a few tips to make these photos and memories packed full of laughter and tons of fun!

Getting ready photos Ohio wedding Photographer

  1. Have something for all of you to wear
    • There are so many options but one of the following makes these photos so pretty!
    • Robes
    • Monogramed button downs
    • cute shorts and a matching t-shirt
  2. Have something to throw or pop to celebrate
    • throw some confetti
    • pop a bottle of champagne
    • throw petals in the air
    • have a pillow fight
  3. Take a drink of the champagne
    • After you pop it open grab your matching glasses and take a sip

We hope that some of these spark some ideas and fit your personality for your wedding day! They are so much fun and make for adorable photos! Plus, they don’t take much time at all! We typically schedule about 15 minutes for “posed getting ready” photos before the bridesmaids get into their dresses. After they are dressed, then it is YOUR TURN (the bride)!

So what are you going to pick? A giant pillow fight, tossing some confetti, or popping a bottle of champagne? Either way, we can’t wait! It is going to be so much fun!
