Are you in the middle of wedding planning or trying to nail down your wedding timeline?? Are you finding yourself stressed and anxious over trying to fit all that you want for your wedding day into ONE DAY?! You’re not alone! But, as a Southwest Florida wedding photographer, I know a thing or two about making sure we make the most of your day. And a GREAT way to do that?! Bride and groom portraits BEFORE your actual wedding day.🙌🏽
Now, hear me out, because I’m sure your wheels are spinning. Your wedding day is BUSY! From getting ready to gift exchanges and all the little moments in between, it’s so easy to lose track of time. Not to mention all the special portraits you want, right?! But it doesn’t have to be!
Here are just a few reasons why taking your bride and groom before your wedding day is such a good idea (and use of time!!)
Time Is Of The Essence
Not only is wedding planning a big timeline, but so is the actual day! Giving yourself a completely separate day for your bride and groom portraits not only frees up time on your actual wedding day but also gives you allllll the time on the day of them. Make a date out of them! Pamper yourself before and spoil yourself after. What is usually a 30-minute window during your wedding day to squeeze all the portraits in can be 2 hours on a completely separate day.
Of course, you’ll be wearing your gorgeous wedding attire, but you can use these bride and groom portraits to change into something completely different! Cozy up with a casual outfit or show out in a chic second wedding dress!
Instead of having allllll your wedding photographs at one or two venues, having bride and groom portraits before the day gives you the opportunity to have them anywhere!
Less Stress & Pressure, More Fun
Wedding days are BIG life moments. They are filled with emotions, big and small, and surrounded by your loved ones. All eyes are on you, and it can feel like a ton of pressure! But, with bride and groom portraits before the big day - it doesn’t have to be. This is an intimate moment between the two of you to celebrate your love and get ready for the day before you officially become a married couple! Enjoy it!
Nail Down The Details
Last, but certainly not least, these portraits give you the opportunity to nail down your final look! Whether that’s finding the perfect hairstyle or finally deciding on your nail design. Maybe you're stuck on a tie design or suit color?! Use these portraits to bring it all together and make sure you're walking into your wedding day feeling confident and ready!
