Importance of Wedding Details + Getting Ready in Your Timeline

Importance of Wedding Details + Getting Ready in Your Timeline: Saaty Photography. Our wedding clients commonly ask about when I should begin shooting on the wedding day. Though this is a decision that each couple will need to make for themselves, I always hope that photography can begin early enough to allow me to capture getting ready and intimate detail photos. Why? Simple because I LOVE it! Here are the top three reasons for including time for getting ready and detail photos:


Importance of Wedding Details + Getting Ready in Your Timeline


Highlight Your Unique Details

In the whirlwind of your wedding day you will be surrounded by loved ones and brimming with emotion. Weddings are full of grand highlights that will be remembered forever. With all the love and planning that goes in to each big day, you will want to remember the unique details that made your wedding story! It is vital to have photos to help document and remember the little things, too! Many of these wedding details like your dress or shoes are items you may not wear again. In 25 years, you’ll love being able to admire the personal details that you carefully selected for your special day.

Preserving the Little Moments

Getting ready for your wedding is a time filled with both anticipation and joy. Being able to reflect on those feelings through photos later is important. Spending time with your closest friends and family members before the ceremony is an emotional time that is truly worth capturing. This part of the day is full of meaningful moments with those who will always be by your side. Getting ready photos are the perfect candid additions to your wedding gallery because they focus on sweet moments with those closest to you which will supplement the formal group shots that will take place later.

Get Comfortable With Being Photographed

As your photographer, I am there to record all of the grand and small moments of your wedding day. This can be a bit intimidating to begin with if you are someone who feels shy when a camera is near (totally normal!). Because of this, it can be helpful to have some candid time to get used to being followed around by your own personal paparazzi! In no time, you’ll be able to relax and it will feel completely natural. Soon enough, the last thing you’ll be thinking about is the camera and you’ll be that much more present for your wedding.

Words can not express how thankful and happy we are that we chose Monica to capture our perfect day. She made us feel both comfortable and confident in the whole process. She has this ease that makes you feel you’ve known her for years. Her kindness, personality, and professionalism was beyond what we could have hoped for. Her communication and organization was so impressive as well (I am far from organized)! Our photos are AMAZING, they are perfect. We wish we could do it all over again, and again. Seriously, book her right now! Best choice we could have made, and she helped make our day so wonderfully memorable and way less stressful.
