Chances are, as the day goes by, the kids are going to get less and less keen on having on their picture taken. By catching them at this early stage, you will be able to take pictures not only in their own home. This makes them more comfortable, but also whilst they are still fresh and awake. Doesn’t this beat trying to get them to smile when they have been on the go for a few hours?
The bridal preparation photos don’t only need to be of the bride and groom, but all the guests and members of the wedding party present. These relationships have been cultivated for years, and there is likely to be plenty of love and emotion flowing around. It could be the best man and the groom laughing. Or the bride and her children in an embrace. There are so many different shots that are possible, why miss them?!
