When someone books us to cover their wedding, part of the package includes wedding photography, bridal hairstyle and the make-up for the bride. That’s not to say we only provide the hair and make-up for the bride, if we know in advance there will be others that need their ‘do’ doing, we can bring a larger team along.
We get asked a lot about how we’re going to make the bride look elegant when the surroundings may not be especially attractive, like in a kitchen. For those that are photographers you’ll know it’s about being sensitive to your surroundings, knowing intimately what your camera equipment does and then using it to your, actually, your clients advantage.
Case in point, here’s 4 photographs of Kirsty’s wedding trial. Hair and make-up is so important that we always provide a trial. We work with the bride to create the hair and make-up look that they want, usually 6 weeks before the wedding. Getting one of the last minute details sown up provides a level of security that the bride and groom don’t have to worry what’s going to happen on the day…from the hair and make-up perspective.
Wedding photography kitchen styleeeee? If you know what you’re doing, the photographer that is, then no panic Mr Manwaring, you’d never know Kirsty here was photographed in our kitchen at home.
