When it comes to wedding preparations, every situation is unique. As a professional photographer, MK-Pixels Photography understands the importance of capturing stunning photos during this special time. Here are some tips to help you get the best wedding preparation photos on your big day.


Lighting is key. When choosing a location for getting ready, look for places with plenty of natural light and space. Large windows and open areas are ideal. If you are getting ready in a hotel room, consider upgrading to a suite or penthouse for more room and better lighting.

Lights & Location


When planning your wedding preparations, it's important to consider all of your options. While hotels, resorts, and Airbnbs can be great options, don't overlook the potential of renting a beautiful home or property for your preparations. Especially in seaside or country regions, there are many stunning homes and properties that can serve as the perfect setting for your wedding preparations. These locations not only provide a picturesque setting but can also offer more privacy and a more relaxed atmosphere, which can be especially beneficial on the day before your wedding. Exploring alternative locations can help you find the perfect space to start your wedding day in a calm and beautiful environment.

Proximity matters. The closer you are getting ready to the ceremony, the better. Ideally, you should be no more than a 15-minute drive apart. If you are getting ready at the same hotel, choose rooms on different floors.

Timing is everything. Hair and makeup can be a big obstacle to getting good preparation photos. To avoid delays, make sure hair and makeup is mostly finished by the time the photographer arrives. Consider hiring a professional and do a trial run to ensure everything runs smoothly on the big day.

Timing & Distance

Keep it simple. Clean lines and minimal clutter make for better photos. To achieve this, try to keep the getting ready area clean and organized.

By following these tips, you can ensure that your wedding preparation photos are stunning and capture the beauty and emotion of this special time. Trust MK-Pixels Photography to capture all the special moments of your big day.
