Father-seeing-the-bride-for-the-first-time

It is a little tricky being in two places at once, but I can generally photograph both the bride and groom if they aren’t getting ready too far apart (usually no more than 20 minutes drive). The following is a general scenario for the morning of the wedding. It is often different and completely depends on how the couple decide to run their day. Generally, I start at the place the bride is getting ready and photograph the details (flowers, rings, shoes, anything else special to the couple) and capture candid shots of hair and make up being applied. Then I shoot over to the guys. I usually ask that the groom and his men wait until I’m there to put on the finishing touches (ties, buttonholes, etc). Once I’ve taken a few photos of the men suited up together I’ll return to the bride. I’ll spend time photographing the brides final preparations, then the bride and her bridesmaids and her parents if they are present. I like to head to the ceremony a little early too, depending on the time.
