Tips to get the most out of your photos
Choosing where to get ready
“When deciding on where you’re going to get ready, it really helps to look out for big windows & a room that isn’t cluttered/has plenty of space. This will allow me to get those beautiful, clean detail shots & the perfect photos of you getting into your dress, without any distractions in the background.
It’s also a great idea to get matching dressing gowns for your bridesmaids. Not only does this make for lovely photos but it’s the perfect keepsake for your girls to remember the day by.”
