How to get gorgeous flat lay photos that tell your story
I love capturing all the little details you've carefully chosen to be a part of your wedding day!
On the day of your wedding, I'll typically arrive a little early to say hello & snag your details first thing. I like to set aside about 30 minutes to capture and style details. I recommend choosing a getting ready location filled with natural light and, if possible, please keep the space (or at least a corner) free from trash and clutter :)
It would be wonderful if you could put all of your rings, jewelry, shoes, veil purse, perfume, invitations and other keepsakes tog| ether in one spot. Please unwrap your dress but don't worry about styling it - I'll hang it in a beautiful spot!
