How to prepare for your wedding photographer in the morning

I bet you didn’t know you need to prepare for your photographer arriving in the morning did you? Well you do, so listen up!

You need to consider where you’re getting ready, the room must be large, full of natural light, make-up must be done by a window so there’s lots of natural awesome looking light for your photographs.

You also need to make sure someone is on-hand to tidy up all the clutter, there’ll be lots of mess with all those people bustling around, get one of your bridesmaids to make sure they do a quick tidy up every 30 minutes or so.

You probably also want to consider giving your house a really good clean the night before, think to yourself “how would this look on instagram” if it fails the instagram test, hoover and tidy it up again - keep going until everything is away and spotless.

The other thing to consider is asking any people who aren’t particularly camera friendly to wait in the garden until the prep is over or they’ve at least had their make-up done so they resemble human beings.

Old people - you don’t need them in your morning pictures, anyone over the age of 30 who will ruin the cool, hip vibe of your pictures - ask them not to come round in the morning at all, if they do arrive, have your tidy up bridesmaid refuse them entry.

Your pictures are important, don’t let anything ruin them…

Of course you’ve no doubt read a bunch of blog posts about getting the most from your pictures and how to prepare, personally I think it’s a load of crap. You’ve got enough to think about, do whatever the hell you like in the morning, it’s your wedding.

The only thing I ask for is someone to make a decent brew…and maybe a pastry or croissant, treat me like part of the family, forget about the pictures.
