5 Tips for Amazing Getting-Ready Photos

5 Tips for Amazing Getting-Ready Photos

Getting ready is an important part of your wedding day. Think of it as a pre-game event. There are certain things that have to happen during “getting ready” that can set your wedding up for success. There is hair and makeup to be done, getting into your wedding-day attires (dresses and tuxes), pre-ceremony photos, and depending on your cultural background, there are pre-wedding rituals and celebrations. I photographed a "getting ready" portion of a wedding once where the whole groom's side of the family showed up and partied complete with dancing and drinking before going to the church! Needless to say, if you are getting your photographer to document this part of the day, there are certain things you can do to make you get the most out of your "getting-ready" photos.

These photos of Matt and Greg were taken last weekend at Ottawa's Hampton Park. Hampton Park is a beautiful, tiny park right off the highway and it was perfect setting to showcase not only what a handsome couple these two make, and how awesome and fun they are!
