The Perfect Bridal Details

Bridal details are one of my favorite things to photograph, so here’s a list of must-have items to perfect your bridal details. It’s really helpful if everything is together either on a tray or in a box – that way moving to different locations is much easier!

1. Dress or Jumpsuit

Don’t forget to bring along a nice hanger!

2. Veil or Headpiece

3. Rings (all 3!)

We recommend the bride starts the morning with all three rings. This way we know they are together and can take photos of them now, rather than asking you to take the rings off later. We’re big fans of custom ring boxes and ring trays.

4. Shoes

5. Jewelry

6. Perfume

7. Clutch

8. Gifts/Cards

Little black books from boudoir sessions make the perfect gift!

9. Bouquets

It’s best if the florist delivers your flowers to your bridal suite instead of the ceremony. This way we can photograph the flowers when they’re still fresh. Ask your florist if they can include any single stems or extra florals for flat lays.

10. Invitation Suite

This includes everything print: Save the Dates, Invitations, Programs, Seating Cards, Menus, etc. we highly recommend mailing these to me before the big day. This way I can plan the best styling kit items to bring with to match your style.

 

BONUS – DON’T FORGET THOSE FAMILY HEIRLOOMS!
