The preparation shots are a very important detail of telling the story of your day. You don't just start a book from the middle right? We need to have a begining, and a memorable begining at that.

Throughout your wedding day, you will be enjoying and experiencing so many different elements of the day and I'll be there making sure you can look back and remember each one- starting with the jitters and excitement during prep.
Since the bride and bridesmaids have the most involved and detailed preparations, I tend to spend more prep time with the girls. The groom normally waits until I arrive to put on his tie and a few last minute preparations.
