Bridal Detail Checklist:
1. Dresses with Custom Hangers
The dresses are what we photograph first! Even if you do not have a custom hanger there is no need to worry! Just make sure that you have a decent hanger for your gown and the bridesmaids dresses! So, a wooden hanger looks amazing! After all, those beautiful dresses deserve something better than a plastic hanger!
A common thing we have run into is that some brides will have heels they will wear for portraits but then they switch into something more comfortable! We definitely suggest doing this because we want our brides to be comfortable!
3. Invitations and Other Stationary
This is probably the most common thing that is forgotten. We love photographing your invitation because more than likely you splurged on this! However, if you did not splurge, we still want to photograph it! Our goal here is to not just photograph it because we want to capture what it looked like, but because it plays such a huge role! It is a connection point throughout the details and will help tell the story of your day!
Your wedding bands and your engagement ring! One thing we love is to get all of your rings with other detail photos! After we are done we always take the rings back to where they belong!
5. Jewelry & Clutches
Your earrings, necklace, clutch purses, and other jewelry! It is best for the brides to wait to put all of this on once they have their dress on! It allows us to get more beautiful getting ready photos!
6. Veil or Headpiece
These are important because it helps tie all of your detail photos together!
We always encourage our couples to do a First Look because they are absolutely amazing! So, you need to have your bouquets (the bridal and bridesmaids) delivered while you are getting ready so that it will be ready for bridal detail photos and for portraits as well! for portraits! )
Something else that is often forgotten but important is the perfume that you wear on your wedding day! It helps to tie all of your details together! We love these small details that helps to complete the story!
9. Sentimental Items
The keepsake items such as gifts(shared between the bride and groom or for the bridal party for instance), your something blue, something old, something borrowed, something new, letters, handkerchiefs, heirloom pins, etc
