…and lucky you, I’ve put together this amazing resource to help you plan! As someone who helps brides plan weddings on the daily I’ve encountered a lot, while it’s entirely likely this is your first time around the block as a bride. So let me be your gal pal and give you a few tips from the various weddings I’ve been a part of. I’ve rounded up some of my top things to think about not only from a photographer’s perspective, but also from a bride’s perspective. That’s right - I’ve gone around and asked former brides for all their juicy planning tips too. From things they wish they’d done to things they’re glad they did, these girls are sharing some good stuff. I wanted you guys to get the most authentic advice, so I went straight to the source - buckle up!
