When my photographer and I were going over the plan for wedding photos, I chose to spend more time on the photos of me getting ready for the wedding rather than at the end of the reception. The getting ready wedding pictures from Pinterest and wedding blogs enticed me.
The getting ready wedding photos show the bride, groom, wedding party and immediate family getting ready showing the details that go into putting the wedding together.
I wanted photos of the makeup and clothes. I went so far as to get outfits for myself, mom, and maid of honor for this party of the wedding preparation. The little outfits were button down for ease of removal without ruining hair or makeup. They were embroidered with Mrs. Erhard for me, Maid of Honor for my sister, and Mother of the Bride for my sister.
I chose the brides maid and maid of honor shoes to go with the brides maid dresses. I bought the dresses and had the girls buy the shoes instead. These are Steve Madden Playy R in gold satin.

I love these!
Oh wow, what a creative idea! The photos really capture the excitement and each special moment leading to the big event! Thank you for sharing! I really like the black and white, but the close ups and spontaneous shots are wonderful too!
I heart the shoes!
