A Note to the Bride, From Her Wedding Photographer
At Leyre Photography, we've been blessed to work together with many couples and photograph some beautiful weddings. Naturally, on wedding days we work closely with the Bride. Over the years, we've found ourselves serving not only as photographers but also as personal cheerleaders! And we love it!
A lot of planning, time, and effort goes into executing your wedding day. It's easy to feel a bit lost in the details. We've worked with many Brides that find themselves having a difficult time focusing on just being in the moment and soaking it all in. Instead, they're wondering if everything and everyone is in the right place if the caterers arrived, if the Groom's getting ready, if the guests are on time, etc.
As wedding photographers, throughout the wedding day, we're not just capturing the big and little moments for you to cherish. We're also checking in with our Brides as they get ready. We're handing tissues for tears and maybe even cracking a few jokes to ease the jitters. Because we want our Brides to enjoy and be present for their wedding days. So, if you're a Bride-to-Be, here's a special note just for you as your wedding day draws near.
Dear Bride [insert your name], We know you've waited a long time for your wedding day. And we see you. We see the effort you've put into every last detail. We see the consideration for your guests, the thoughtful final touches, and maybe some of the times you've felt a bit overwhelmed in the planning process. There's no doubt it's all going to be worth it!
As your wedding photographers, we're so honored that you're trusting us to capture such a momentous occasion. We recognize how important your wedding day is to you. And that's why we wanted to write you a quick note, as a reminder to enjoy it and be present as much as you can. As the wedding approaches, we want to encourage you to let us focus on capturing the day, so you can focus on being present. And remember, you are more than a pretty picture. Your love story is more than a photo album. Even though we can deliver both- the pretty pictures and an album that holds them- more than anything, we want you to know that this day represents so much more than that. We're going to be there to both photograph your special day and celebrate your love.
We couldn't be more excited for you! It's time to see all the effort, intention, planning, and waiting pay off. We wanted to give you five pieces of advice as you prepare for your big day: 1. Don't let any stress overcome your joy. Especially as the wedding day approaches, focus on what you can control and not on what you can't.
2. Don't forget the real reason you're here- to marry the person you love and to celebrate with others you care about in your life!
3. This day is about what you and your partner want- don't let the opinion of others steal your thunder or burden you.
4. Be present. You might not think it now but your wedding day is going to fly by! Soak in every moment with those you love.
5. You. Look. Beautiful! Stop thinking otherwise.
We can't wait to celebrate with you and we are so excited to be a part of this special occasion. Sincerely, The Leyre Photography Team, AKA- Your Wedding Photographer
