Pick a room with lots of natural light.
When you’re picking your prep room, remember it will feature in all of your prep photos. I always suggest picking a room with natural light, as this helps photographers get the gorgeous photos you likely fell in love with, in their portfolios.
Consider the size of the room and how many people will be getting ready with you.
A prep room can become a cluttered mess very quickly. If the space is small, make sure to keep it as tidy as possible and consider that the more people in one space, the harder that will be. You can always ask your bridal party to only change in the space but do their hair and makeup in a separate area. Grooms, the same goes for you!
Prepare your details.
I always ask my brides to set aside a specific set of details so I can get straight to work when I arrive. This way, no time is wasted and everyone is as relaxed as possible. If you have a specific piece of jewelry or sentimental item, let your photographer know so they can focus on what matters!
Be sure to allow enough time.
Each photographer works differently, but I always ask for a minimum of 45-60 minutes for the bridal prep to be worked into the timeline.
