Ahhhhh the veil... a classic wedding piece that can evoke so much elegance, grace, romance... and frustration when it flies off your head in the wind! After photographing so many weddings, I've seen it all, so I wanted to share a few of my tips with you about WHEN you should wear your veil on the big day. 

Read that again, you don't HAVE to wear your veil all day long. In fact, I advise that you only wear it during key points (both for the sake of your sanity AND for the sake of beautiful portraits). 

So here it is in a nutshell, I advise that you wear your veil at the ceremony and for portraits immediately following, but NOT at the first look and pre-ceremony portraits. Here's why:


At your first look, your groom is going to be SO excited to see you! He's going to drink you in and hug you tight, and right as you're trying to enjoy this moment... his hug is going to yank on your veil! I don't know about you, but that would ruin the moment for me, so let's avoid it by not wearing the veil at the first look!

It saves a little surprise for the groom after the first look! Sure, he's seen you in your beautiful gown with your jewelry and makeup and gotten to take all of you in, but that moment when you walk down will still be epic, and the veil adds just a little something to punctuate that!

It gives us a new creative element to shoot in the post-ceremony portraits! Trust me, everyone is a big fan of those photos with the veil flying in the wind or creating an intimate moment between just the two of you on this momentous day. 

By not wearing the veil prior to the ceremony, you can ensure that it won't become wrinkled or damaged prior to the ceremony, keeping you picture perfect all day long!

Veils look more beautiful in the evening! They physically photograph better in sunset light, mid-day light can cause them to look washed out or too bright.

This gets back to a few things I've already said, but by wearing your veil during certain parts of your day, you'll get TWO different bridal “looks”! Check out all this variety!

Now let's be real, some of these tips are more for my benefit as a photographer than they are for your experience as a bride, BUT just considering some of these things can ensure that you have a variety of beautiful portraits of you and your soon-to-be-hubby from the wedding day! That being said, this is not a make or break issue! If you are just as in love with your veil as you are with your groom, WEAR IT GIRL. WEAR IT ALL DAY. Either way, it's going to be perfect(:

Your first look is an amazing part of your wedding day! If you aren’t sure about this tradition, hopefully this will explain why it would be a romantic addition to your wedding day celebration that not only adds to the experience but also reduces stress. Please know that I would never want any of my couples to feel pressured to go with this option. However, I do want to make sure that I share all of the benefits of a first look, because there is a reason 90% of my couples do this and LOVE it!   


1

40% more portraits

You’re investing a lot into your wedding photography. With a first look, you’ll receive 40% MORE portraits of the two of you… and those are the images you will decorate your first home with! (Believe me, my house is PACKED full of our portraits!) With a first look, you make the most out of this large investment and get the most for your money.

2

diminishes nerves

You get rid of your nerves! I’d say, literally 1/2 of my couples who have decided to do a first look, the grooms were not fans of the idea at first. However, because they have never experienced their wedding day before, they didn’t know how nerve wracking it can be.

enjoy the surprise

Most brides don’t realize that when you come down the aisle and totally SHOCK him with your gorgeous-ness… he can’t even tell you how amazing you look. He can’t touch you, embrace you or even SPEAK to you. You have to wait until 30 minutes later when the ceremony is over for him to react and tell you how amazing you look. And after 30 minutes of the ceremony, the reaction isn’t the same as the initial first glance.

3

EXTEND YOUR DAY

Normally the wedding day starts when you come down the aisle, then you rush through portraits, and then it’s reception time. With a first look, your wedding day is extended by almost 3 hours! Instead of being rushed for your wedding party portraits… you actually get to enjoy them and have fun hanging out with your BEST friends on your wedding day. 

4

YOUR ONLY TIME ALONE

First Looks allow you to be TOGETHER and alone on your wedding day. Normally portraits are a little rushed after the family formals, and it can be hard to really get back into that “lovey dovey” mode…. especially with family around! When you have just shared your first look, you’re READY to love on each other, and I always capture some super sweet images during those moments!

Is a first look right for you?

Having an Unplugged Ceremony means that you ask guests to be fully present in your wedding by putting away their mobile phones and cameras. Your professional photos will be stunning without your guests holding cameras and they will be fully present to participate in your day. Plus you will be able to share the files you receive with your guests via your beautiful online gallery!

benefits of unplugging

how to tell your guests

the benefits of an unplugged ceremony

1

Your professional photos won't be full of others taking cell phone photos. Obviously I'm a little biased, but this is the BIGGEST reason I recommend unplugging!

2

Your guests will listen and get to take in all the little magical moments more.

3

It will minimize distractions during the ceremony, for all the guests around each other AND for the couple.

You'll have better control over when these life-changing moments are added to social media.

That’s it! Prepare for your session by following these easy tips to have wonderful time!


Have a vision: You’ve probably already done this as part of choosing your photographer, but make sure you have a vision of the type of photos you’d like to have for your home. How do you want to remember this time in your life? Knowing what you’d like your finished product to look like will help you with so many of the other decisions that need to be made in this list.

Share your vision: It is critical that the other people in your photographs understand your vision (unless they’re small children, then just focus on the smiling-on-command!). If your partner has never been exposed to candid, intimate, engagement sessions, they might just think you’re going to smile at the camera a little bit and show off the ring. Make sure that everyone knows what they’re getting into; you’ll be so much happier!

Location: You have a vision of where you want these photos to happen. You may know exactly where you want to take them! Maybe it’s where you and your fiance had your first date or it’s your family’s favorite hangout spot. Maybe you don’t know the exact name or address, but when you close your eyes you know whether you picture you and your fiance in a meadow or in the middle of a crowded street. Share your general vision with your photographer and ask them for suggestions on the location! They will have their favorite spots and they will know all the little nooks and crannies where you can get some unique, creative shots!

Clothes: You may want to coordinate, but that does NOT mean you have to match. Choose an outfit that you love; that you feel comfortable and confident in. Plan all the other outfits around that one. Make sure that the outfit makes sense with your vision, the setting, and each other. Lay your outfits out next to each other to see how they look! You probably want to stay away from more than 1 outfit change. These can be difficult to pull off in public places and you’ll feel more stressed during the session rather than just enjoying the time being adorable with your loved one(s).

Glasses: Although you should wear glasses if no one would recognize you without them, but be warned that the glare on glasses can detract from your eyes in photos. It may be beneficial to wear contact lenses or to pick up a cheap pair of glasses from the pharmacy and pop the lenses out prior to your session (this won’t help you see, but you’ll look like yourself in your photos while still having your eyes visible!).

Hair & Nails: If you are planning to get a haircut prior to your session, you should make sure you can get your appointment about two weeks prior to your session. That way if the worst happens and they completely mess it up, you’ve got time to recuperate and make appropriate plans. Secondly, although it’s small, make sure that your fingernails are clean and free of chipping nail polish. These are the little things you will kick yourself for later if you miss them!

Posing: Explore around the internet to find some poses that you love and that express your style and personal brand of love. Of course, Cait will come prepared with lots of pose suggestions, but the more that you invest in this preparation, the more personal the portraits will feel. If you are self-conscience about a certain part of your body, do some research prior to the session on some successful ways to make you look and feel your best.

Props: To that end, think about what props you may want at your session. This could be your child’s favorite toy, the first gift your fiance gave you, or just something you think would be adorable. There are tons of great ideas on pinterest. If you think of something, ask Cait to see if she has it already!

Before the session: EAT! Coming from the Queen of Hanger (me), you’ll be glad that you did.

​​Have fun!: Be open to new things and ready to have some fun! Some of the best pictures come about from the the things that sound the silliest! If you come in to your session open minded, you could end up with an entire album of unique and insanely fun images.

So you’ve done it. You’ve researched, gotten referrals, and combed the internet to see whose style matches your vision and you have finally chosen and BOOKED a photographer! Unfortunately, now you’ve got a whole new set of concerns popping up in your brain. What should you wear? What should your partner wear? What should the kids wear? Where should you go? What time of day?  How are you going to pose? What if you come up with a list of poses and forget them all? How can you possibly have this many pins of poses you love? The questions are never ending. Fortunately, I’ve made this list of 10 tips and advice to help you get the most from your session and to be completely happy with the results!

There you have it! My best tips for ensuring a fun-filled session with lots of giggles and love. can't wait to see you and your little ones!

7

DON'T SWEAT THE SMALL THINGS AND HAVE FUN!
Listen, this isn't going to go perfectly. Your child is going to get off task and we are going to work hard to get them back on the right track, with the right attitude. THAT'S OKAY! Your children are going to pick up on and reflect your mood, so do your best to take deep breaths, relax, and trust the process. 

6

TELL THEM WHAT TO EXPECT
Start telling your kids a few days or weeks before your session that they're going to have their photos taken and tell them how much fun it's going to be! Hyping up the experience will make them look forward to the day and they'll be in a great mood when it's time.

5

MAKE SURE THEY'RE COMFORTABLE IN THEIR CLOTHES
If your kid hates the adorable outfit you've chosen for them, it's going to show in the photos. I know this might be a hard one, but trust me, happy kids make better photos than cute accessories! When you're choosing the outfit, make sure you anticipate the weather so that they don't get too hot or too cold. 

4

REMEMBER THE LITTLE THINGS!
Little games that your family enjoys playing together, toys or songs that always make them smile, the funny noises dad makes... all of these are great tools we can work into your session. They'll make the kids happy and make your photos so authentic and genuine to the life that you're living right now. 

3

AVOID SCHEDULING THE SESSION CLOSE TO NAP TIME OR BED TIME
Even though we can't control their moods, we can do our best not to ask them to work with us when they're at their crankiest! If there's no time on my calendar that works with their schedule, let me know and we'll set up something special so that everyone can be in a great mood!(: A sunrise session might be a great solution!

2

BRIBE BRIBE BRIBE 
This kind of goes along with bringing snacks, but you can also bribe them with doing something fun after the session, like getting ice cream. Giving them something to look forward to AFTER the photo shoot is a great way to encourage them to listen DURING the shoot!

1

BRING THEIR FAVORITE SNACKS!
These will (1) ensure the little ones don't get hangry and (2) act as a great motivator (read: bribe) to get them to smile when we want!

Let me just start by saying, I. GET. IT. Kids are, well.... KIDS! So I never want you to worry about the way your kids are behaving at our session. I'm there to capture them in all their childish glory, whether they are running wild or hiding from the camera behind you. But you, as a parent, you're STRESSED. You've done all this work to book a photographer, pick everyone's outfits, dragged them all out to the middle of no where field at an inconvenient time to get the best lighting... it's hard work.  I want to make sure that you get the fun experience and amazing photos that you've worked so hard for, so I've compiled a couple of quick tips to make that happen!

Preparing children for a session

Relax! You don’t have to be a pro at this. I’m going to help you along the way and it’s going to be a blast.

Enjoy this time together, Plan dinner afterwards and celebrate(:

OUTFIT INSPIRATION
Since we've learned that we should always start with the lady's outfit, I've compiled some of my FAVORITE outfit inspiration for her. Use this to figure out what you're going to wear and then base everyone else's outfits around it!

1

DON'T TRY TO MATCH
Try to pick outfits and accessories that coordinate instead. If everyone wore the same exact color at their shoot, how boring would those images be?

2

BE BOLD
Accessorize and make your outfits your own! Scarves, bold necklaces and fun shoes are always welcomed!

3

PATTERNS ARE A-OKAY
But graphics are not favorable for portraits. If you’re wearing a pattern as your main outfit (for example, a patterned dress), then put your man in more solid colors. If you're doing a family session, you could do a small coordinating pattern on part of the children's outfits (for example, a small pattern on a shirt with solid pants or a pattern on a skirt with a solid top). Just make sure it’s not overwhelming and distracting. 

4

EMPTY YOUR POCKETS!
Literally. You don’t want to have key chains or phones showing through your pockets. (This is for the guys especially!)

5

BE COMFORTABLE
Make sure you’re comfortable in what you’re wearing. Your comfort is the MOST important element when you're choosing your outfits. If you feel you need to suck-in to like the way you look in an outfit, or if the hem bugs you, or if you have literally any other reservation about the outfit, you're not going to like your photos. If the outfit you feel like a goddess in breaks all of these other rules, BREAK THEM! As long as you follow THIS rule, everything else will be FINE.

6

LADIES FIRST
Ladies, pick your outfit FIRST! Usually, you're going to be the pickiest dressers in the family. Once you've found something that you feel AMAZING in, use that as the anchor for everyone else's outfits. 

7

IF YOU'RE ADVANCED...
If you're doing a family session, I would stick to just one outfit for your sanity! However, if you're doing a session with just the grown-ups, you may want to do TWO outfits! Most often, couples like to have one casual, everyday outfit and then one outfit that is dressier for two totally different looks. I recommend beginning with the dressy outfit first!

What to wear GUIDE

Being a modern day groom is no easy task. We're no longer in the times of the groom "just showing up to the church" while the bride takes care of everything else. In fact, planning this day is a major step in setting the tone for your future partnership as a married couple. So be prepared to get involved!

Here are my top tips for being a great groom and enjoying the HELL out of your wedding day:


HAVE AN OPINION.
This is your wedding too, so get in on the planning. Pick a few things that interest you (food? the wedding music? photos?). You don't have to feel strongly on the difference between lilies and daisies for the bridesmaid bouquets, but give your opinion on the major planning points; it'll let your fiance know they're not in this alone. 

CONTRIBUTE TO THE WEDDING REGISTRY.
It may seem like a tedious task, but think about it: You get to wander around a store, picking things you want that someone most likely will buy you -- you can't beat that. And this goes WAY beyond the kitchen; consider home electronics, power tools, and camping gear. Can't justify shelling out for a 70" smart TV yourself? Throw it on your wedding registry, and a group of friends might buy it for you!

DON'T FORGET TO DATE BEFORE THE WEDDING.
If she's doing the majority of the planning for your wedding, she's probably bordering on wedding overload. You need to make sure she doesn't have an ulcer (or a grudge!) by the time she walks down the aisle. Give her a night to relax and cook her dinner, do the dishes, rent her favorite movie (yes, even a chick flick), and remind her why wedding planning is worth the stress- because it's the start of her life with a wonderful man!

BE A BUFFER.
If your mom is calling your fiance every hour to talk about the wedding, you run the risk of major family conflict, with you stuck in the middle. Your mission: Keep the peace. Call your mom and let her know that while you appreciate her interest and excitement, it's your wedding and she needs to give you two some planning space. Take responsibility for communicating with your family so that you can filter out petty worries from legitimate concerns.

DON'T ADD INSULT TO INJURY.
Take this one down for the long haul, not just wedding planning- your fiance may complain about her mom who's being a control freak, or about her uncle who wants to bring his new girlfriend, or her cousin who wants to bring all four of her kids. Don't join in on the family bashing. Hear her out, agree with her, but don't take this opportunity to tell her the things about her family that annoys you. Her bad mood will pass, but your careless comments may stick.

ARRANGE THE ATTIRE.
What you and your groomsmen wear should definitely be one of those things you weigh in on heavily as we discussed in #1. Send out detailed emails to all your groomsmen filling them in on the relevant info for the formalwear -- let them know when and where to get fitted for their tuxes, and remind them to return the suits the day after the wedding to avoid annoying late fees. Loop your fiance in on the emails to prove that you've got everything under control. The more info you can share, the better. Got directions to the tux place? Include them. Don't assume they'll know anything about this stuff. Did you before you got engaged?

MANAGE YOUR MEN.
Know your friend who loses his car keys at least once a week? Probably better not to make him responsible for bringing your ring to the ceremony. And your buddy who tends to drink too much? Make sure one of your more reliable (or sober) groomsmen keeps him from flirting with your fiance's mom at the rehearsal dinner. Your guys don't have to be saints, but they will have responsibilities, and it's your job to make sure they know what they are. AND REMEMBER, your attitude and behavior will influence how your groomsmen act and behave. If you don't care about the timeline, details, or photos, they won't either and you'll be likely to miss out on some important moments!

GET SENTIMENTAL.
This is not the time to try to preserve your "man card" (whatever that is). This is the time to be truly and authentically yourself with your future spouse. The day of your wedding, send her a gift, flowers, or a sweet note to read while she's getting ready. Or, at the reception, pull the videographer aside and tape a special message to her. She'll see it later and I promise, she'll love you all the more.






Now let's be real, some of these tips are more for my benefit as a photographer than they are for your experience as a groom, BUT just considering some of these things can ensure that you have an amazing experience on your wedding day surrounded by the people you love and your new life partner.
