Wedding photo shoot in the studio: how to beat the morning shots
If you decide to do photos in the studio, then a few frames in the style of “morning of the bride” can still be adjusted. Take pictures in a dressing gown or nightgown, capture the moments when parents first see the bride in a dress. If the studio has a bed or a sofa, then it will be much easier to beat the morning atmosphere in the photo.

3. The moment when they put on a veil.
4. How do you apply perfume.
5. Take close-up pictures of shoes, rings, garters, elements of a dress, a bouquet, a veil.
6. Breakfast before the wedding. Morning, a cup of coffee, fruits, a white bathrobe. It should turn out beautiful!
7. Photograph of your reflection in the mirror. Many brides have such morning photos. But this is not a banality, but a classic.

Photo session of the bride: what else is worth considering for a photo
We have collected tips for you that you will not see in the selection of photo ideas. They are more about training for the morning photo session of the bride, so that everything goes smoothly:
1. Space without a groom
Yes, because he should not see you in a dress before the wedding. So, you need to find a place where you will paint and dress. If you live together, then you need to calculate the time so that he leaves before the morning photo shoot.
2. Decorate the room
For example, if you shoot the bride’s morning in the bedroom, then you need to prepare plain bedding and a breakfast table. Think about the lighting and how the curtains will look in the pictures by the window. Put a large mirror in the room. There will be no time for this preparation in the morning.
3. Allow enough time for photography
After all, with posing you will get ready for longer, and they won’t wait at the registry office 🙂
Even if you don’t feel like eating in the morning, you can just make a beautiful breakfast for the photo. Choose dishes, put fruits, coffee, pastries.
5. Invite a witness, mother, sister in the morning to your home.
Let them help you get ready in the morning photos, put on a veil, straighten your dress.
6. Convenient location
If you don’t feel like or don’t have time to organize a photo session at home, then you can organize it in a hotel room. Choose a room where everything is already suitable for your morning photos, and not worry about the decor.
