1. Get Your Beauty Sleep
As a general word of advice before your big day, make sure you are well rested. With the next day's itinerary lingering over your head, go through your timeline and schedule for the following day to see if there are any last minute details that need to be addressed. This will help put your mind at ease and provide you with a better night of rest. You'll wake up looking and feeling amazing for your wedding day!
2. Schedule Enough Prep Time
Make sure you schedule enough time to prepare your hair and makeup. You’d be surprised with how much time it takes to have your hair and makeup professionally done for your wedding. When booking your artists, double check on time with them to allow the getting ready process to flow easily. You don’t want to feel pressed for time!
3. Ask Your Girls For Help
Have a couple of your bridesmaids or family members lend a hand during the shoot. They can keep an eye out for any make up smudges or stray hairs that need to be tended to while you get your photos taken.
4. Use Your Location
If you’re having your wedding at one of the beautiful resorts here in Hawaii, use the property to your advantage. Chances are there's a beautiful staircase to show off your long train, a chandelier in the lobby for an elegant feel, or a balcony overlooking the gorgeous Pacific Ocean. Anything colorful and vivid will provide a breathtaking background for your bridal portraits.
5. Keep it Simple
Don’t overcomplicate your bridal portraits. Make yourself comfortable and relax! Let your personality naturally shine through and have fun!
