One of the best parts of the day to photograph all the bridal details is during the getting ready. You don’t always have to stick around your bride and groom right as you arrive, and it gives you a chance to capture the details while they’re all fresh and neat.
Sometimes, you may even find that the vendors are finishing up their parts of the day and getting everything ready to start. Not only is it a great piece of story telling to have some shots of the preparations, but it can also add a lot of diversity to your shots.
In this case, we saw the florist putting the final pieces together on the bridal bouquet and we wanted to photograph these flowers a bit differently. We found a simple, neutral-toned background in the shade and asked the florist to hold the bouquet out with one hand.
We did this simply because we were inspired by what we had seen before and what florists posts on their Instagram. Taking inspiration from different types of photography can really be fun and helpful to grow your own skills.
