The Importance of Where You Put on Your Wedding Dress

21 May 2014

Recently, I had a conversation with one of my previous bride's that I found interesting.  Katrina and Shaun married last July, and after their wedding, Katrina's maid of honor booked me to photograph her wedding.  Kelly and James married in February at Sebring Mansion in Sebring, Ohio.  So, now that you know the back story, we'll go back to the conversation.

Katrina mentioned how much she loved Kelly's getting ready photos.  She was amazed at how the location you choose to get ready can make such a difference in your photos.  Now, this is not to say that Katrina doesn't love her getting ready photos.  I know I love them.  There's just a different feel to each girl's photos.

Kelly's photos are tranquil and quiet.  She didn't have a wedding party and you can feel the anticipation of the day in her photos.

Katrina's are excited and full of laughter.  You can feel the anticipation in her's as well, but in a different way.

There are many times when you can't do much about your getting ready location.  They are not always going to be amazing locations.  Sometimes, they are church basements or a meeting room and sometimes they are a beautiful room in a historic inn.  Sometimes they're a room you've never seen and sometimes they are your childhood bedroom and full of memories and meaning as you move on to the next stage of your life.

Hopefully, this was a bit food for thought.  It might seem like the getting ready location shouldn't even be a part of your thoughts as you plan your wedding.  I mean, you've already got enough on your mind without having to worry about one more thing.  In all honesty, a photographer can work with whatever they have to.  Sometimes we get lucky though and get to work in a beautiful location, which just adds that much more to your wedding photos.
