I LOVE photographing the bride getting ready! It's the perfect start to the wedding day. Avoid beauty malfunctions by planning ahead, and you’ll be the belle of the ball on your most important day.
Be sure to have a hair and makeup trial at least a month before your wedding for peace of mind. Make sure to snap a few images after your session to make sure all elements, from makeup, to hair, to dress, to jewelry, are perfect and fabulously photogenic.
Allow 50% more time for hair and makeup than you originally anticipated on the big day. This will ensure you have plenty of time for all the portraits you want to take before the wedding.
SHIMMER ME TIMBERS
Go easy on the shimmers and translucent powders. A little goes a long way, but too much ends up looking streaky and unpolished.
MORE IS BETTER
Because you’re likely to look washed out without it, wear more makeup than you would if you were going out for the evening. Even if you are not the type to wear a ton of makeup, make an exception for your wedding day. You will not regret it.
There will be tears, so waterproof mascara is a must. Even if you’re not terribly emotional, the stress leading up to the day is enough to leave anyone in tears.
