The Importance of Natural Light – During Getting Ready

During getting ready- for hair and makeup, hanging with friends, and putting on your dress- Natural window light is a photographer’s best friend. While we can achieve a similar look with flash, there is nothing quite as perfect as natural light the way it casts it’s soft light and shadows. Also, not having to use flash constantly gives everyone in the room a chance to forget that there is a photographer in the room. We recommend choosing a getting ready area that has good natural light, and lots of large windows if possible.
