Why Bridal Prep Photos are an Important Part of Your Wedding Day Story | Springfield, Mo Wedding Photographers

The hour before walking down the aisle is an exhilarating rush.

It almost feels like all the key people are actors and stage hands rushing around behind the curtain just before opening night of the big play.  

It can go by so quickly that the details and smaller moments are forgotten, or go unnoticed completely. Every bride remembers what it feels like to walk into the room as her processional plays, the love of her life looking back at her from the other end of the aisle. Fewer remember who knew how to tie the ties when every single one of the groomsmen suddenly forgot. Fewer remember where they hung their dresses to keep them wrinkle free or how messy the bridal prep room managed to get while everyone was hurrying around to get ready on time. Who was it that was finally able to bribe the flower girl to put her shoes on?? These may not seem like important details right now while the wedding planning pressure is on, but the sentimental value of the tiny moments grow so much larger with time. A good wedding collection will freeze these memories for you so you can reflect on them after the thrill of the day settles down.  

We hope you enjoy a few of our favorite wedding party prep photos from the last year:
