Please set up near the largest window in the room

I love making sure brides have beautiful pictures that they'll cherish forever! Let's start with lighting. Lighting is everything! Beautiful light makes a huge difference in photography. Make sure you're near the biggest window in the room. Ask your hair and makeup team to set up near a window. If you choose a dark corner to do your makeup, it won't be ideal for your makeup artist or photographer.

If you don't have large windows in your suite, I always come prepared with camera flash!

Please save a clean space for photos

Have your bridesmaids and groomsmen store their personal belongings in one place out of the way. Distractions in the background can ruin a beautiful photograph.
