Hi! My name's Daniel Solomon Jackson, and it's great to have you here. Whether you're here to look at some beautiful images or just to get some encouragement, I hope I can be a provider for both. So kick up your feet and stay a while.
Your vendors are people, and all people need a little love sometimes.
For those of you who don’t know I LOVE it when couples do first looks at weddings. I love them so much that if any couple ever tells me they DON’T plan on doing FL, I have a pamphlet ready right away to try and sway them towards doing one.
Last week I gave a list of all the things a bride should have laid out for a photographer when he arrives so that he can knock those shots out early while still having time to creatively focus. Today is all about what comes next. Getting ready! First, I’ll go into detail about what you can do to make this time great, and then I’ll talk about the timing of it all! [Side note: I wrote a post a little while ago giving some tips on WHERE you should get ready. You can find that HERE.]
I LOVE wedding details. Those little intricacies that brides METICULOUSLY plot out. Those tiny things that no one really would notice. Like a necklace made from the wedding ring of a great-grandmother, or a note given to the groom just moments before the ceremony begins, or the ring bearer’s pillow which was used last by the bride’s grandmother in her own wedding. These things matter to me, because they matter to the bride. She planned them and if she cared enough about them to include them in the wedding, then they should be included elsewhere.
When planning a wedding, there are quite a few things that can slip through the little cracks in the details. I mean, there are so many BIG THINGS to think about that the small stuff it tough! So, here are just five smaller things to make sure you’ve considered and done before you’ll be ready to walk down the aisle on your big day.
Imagine with me. You are SO ready to get ready for your wedding. You’ve double checked with your makeup artist to make sure they know what time to arrive. After calling three times, the hair people have reassured you that they understand exactly what you want your hair to look like, and although you’re still a little nervous about them, you’ve decided to trust ’em. You even know what you’re going to eat for breakfast right before you start getting ready. But there is one detail that some brides forget to think about. You have all the “whats” planned for getting ready, but it’s SO easy to forget to plan the “where.” The where? Yes, the where. To place this into perspective, the better you choose this location, the better your final images will come out for this portion of the day. And who doesn’t want great images?! So, here’s 3 tips to help you choose WHERE you want to get ready.
