The Night Before Your Wedding

5 “Must-Do’s” For Your Perfect Day

Wedding Photographer, Ft. Myers Florida

the night before your wedding

This week, in our email we came across Kennedy Blue’s  newsletter with a wonderful article called “Wedding Countdown: What To Do the Night Before Your Wedding”.  As a wedding photographer, it got me thinking.  What do Brides do the night before their wedding, and what helpful information is there out there that would not only help our wonderful Brides, but make the day of, just a bit more wonderful.

Here are the top 5 Must-Do’s that we liked…. alot… and would suggest for any of our Bride-to-be’s

 

Make a List: When planning an event as big as your wedding day, organization is necessary. Keep track of all of the items you need to bring with you to the venue and check off each item when you pack up your car in the morning. Be sure to check your list twice. A third time couldn’t hurt, either.

Check Your Tech: One of the best things about technology is how easily it allows us to capture memories. However, technology has an odd way of breaking down just when we need it the most. If you thought your printer shutting down the night before a big school paper was due was bad, imagine the sadness that would stem from your camera shutting off long before the night was over. Whether you plan on using a camera for snapping before the ceremony moments or on a tripod for a DIY photo booth station, make sure that you fully charge the device and have plenty of memory space on your camera. Pack your chargers, USB cords, and extra memory cards to make sure all the fun lasts throughout your whole wedding.

Get Romantic: Take time to reminisce on your relationship by looking through old pictures and love letters. Allow yourself to appreciate how amazing it feels to have found the love of your life. After you soak it all in, you’ll be inspired to do something extra special for your groom, such as writing him a heartfelt letter to give to him before you walk down the aisle.

Relax and Rest: You’ve been waiting your whole life for your wedding day, so you’ll certainly be feeling some butterflies on the night before your wedding. To banish worrisome “What if?” thoughts, trust in all of the planning that you have done and simply try to enjoy yourself. Watch an episode of your favorite show, do some yoga, read a book, or something else you enjoy to calm your mind. Most importantly, get plenty of beauty sleep.

AND MOST IMPORTANTLY:

Spend Time with Family and Friends: Your friends and family have been there for you in good times and bad, and they surely want to be a part of all the good that is your wedding day. Grab coffee with a few of your close friends in the morning, go out to lunch with your parents, and give other close ones some phone calls to tell them how much you appreciate them and how excited you are for them to be a part of your day. Remember that a simple a thank you goes a long way.

Life Unscripted – Just go and play in the Rain

Enjoying the little things

Capture-Everyday.com

 

One of the biggest blessings in this world is to be able to love what you do and do what you love.  There is nothing better than knowing that the images you create can have the impact to change peoples lives and ignite lost memories.  While all these moments are amazing to be apart of, sometimes we forget (or get too overwhelmed) to just take some pictures for ourselves.  No posing, nothing scripted; just simply enjoying life and creating a visual memory.

When I saw my neighbors and all of the kids out playing in the rain on Labor Day, I knew this was one of those moments that I wanted to just grab my camera and snap away.  Just letting life un-fold in front of me and capturing these fleeting moments.  No posing, no suggestions.  Just laughter, smiles and overall a good time.

I mean how many times as an adult, do we get to just go play in the rain!

Baby P.j’s special Birth – Fresh 48 Session

Birth Photography

Capture-Everyday.com

Birth is one of the most euphoric times in a persons life. You get to witness the miracle of a life being created and then being brought Earth-side. There are so many emotions and feelings that course through your body that most times you don’t remember anything once birth is over, well expect for the pain. Which is where birth photography and Fresh 48 Sessions come in.

Birth photographers are experienced in keeping the parent’s relaxed, most don’t even realize that the photographer is even there. They capture the raw emotions that you might not get from dad or another family member taking the pictures. They remember to get all the little details that someone who is about to become a parent or grandparent, may not think to get. Normally booking a photographer for birth is different then a normal session. You would contact us a few months in advance and we would discuss your due date, if your having any complications, and what you are comfortable (or not comfortable) with us capturing. As your due date approaches you would keep us in the loop with each doctors appointment. You would call us and let us know any changes that are going on (if your dilated, if your doctor has any concerns or if you are having any complications). When you go into labor you would let us know (and if or when your water breaks), we will come in once you starting to dilate and progress.

After Birth we love to capture baby in a fresh 48 session. Fresh 48 session is when baby is 24-48 hours old.  We capture images of the new family, baby, and the parents with baby. We try to keep it as relaxed and real as possible. Images are normally organic and just happen, we capture the brand new love that is occuring without a lot of posing or influence. If you are interested in learning more about our birth photography or fresh 48 sessions email us at kelly@capture-everyday.com.
