It’s All In The Details | Brakefield, Rock Hill, SC


I adore wedding day details!  There’s nothing quite like walking into a beautifully lit bridal suite while the bride is being pampered by her fantastic hair and makeup team and seeing the details she has thoughtfully prepared to be included in her wedding album.  It makes my heart flutter and I get excited about the endless possibilities of how to execute gorgeous photos she will treasure for many years to come.

Each DBP bride receives a wedding guide upon booking my services and in that guide I include a list of things she may want to consider in her shot list and the details are always included.  Here are a few tips to keep in mind when considering which details you want captured for your big day:

  1. Make sure the space you’re using is clean and offers good lighting.  The last thing you want is for your photographer to spend his or her time cleaning up the area that you intend to use for their detail shots.  I know there is a lot going on in the bridal suite while prepping for your big day, but if you can designate at least one area of the room (preferably with the best light available – a nice window is perfect!) to use for photos then your photographer will definitely thank you!
  2. Pick out details that are thoughtful and meaningful to you.  Just because you saw it on Pinterest doesn’t mean it will work for you.  Pinterest is a great resource to find ideas you love, but then make them your own.  Choose items that will evoke an emotion and bring you back to your big day.  Are you planning to wear Chanel No. 5 on your big day because your soon-to-be husband loves the scent on you?  Include it!  Are you wearing your grandmother’s necklace as you walk down the aisle?  Make sure your photographer snaps a few photos of lying gently beside your bouquet.
  3. Not sure what details make sense or to include?  Here is just a small sampling that you can add to your shot list: Your shoes, wedding rings, bouquet, dress and hanger, invitation, ceremony program, perfume/cologne, wedding gift(s), books that have meaning to you as a couple, cufflinks, etc.  The possibilities are truly endless!
