Photographing the Getting Ready

When discussing the Agenda and Timeline with my clients, I always recommend having the timeline go from Getting Ready, all the way through the Grand Exit.

How Much Time Should You Allow for Getting Ready?

One to two hours is typically enough time for capturing the getting ready.

If you are considering a “first look”, up to three hours could be more appropriate.

The Makeup

There are a lot of cool details to capture with the makeup and it an integral part of the story.

Because there are such fine details with the makeup, I photography all of my makeup shots with my macro detail lens.

You can see how close you can get with that lens. You can even see the details in the strands of the brush head.
