When it comes to photographing a groom’s preparation, there are a variety of creative and unique ideas that can be utilized to capture the moment. Here are some suggestions:


  • Lots of detail shots: I think this is one of the most overlooked areas during Bride/Groom prep. The groom’s suit, tie, shoes, and any other accessories he may be wearing. Get up close to capture the texture and detail of the fabric.


  • Think outside the box Groomsmen photos: Take photos of the groom with his groomsmen as they get ready together. Then try to get them together in a more casual way, even before they get dressed.


  • Get creative! This is a great time to try new techniques such as reflections, or different ways to frame a photo.


  • Father-son moments: If the groom’s father is present during the preparation, take photos of them together. These moments can be emotional and touching, and provide a glimpse into the family dynamic.


  • Pet photos: If the groom has a pet, include them in the photoshoot! Pets can provide a fun and playful element to the album, and add a touch of personality.


  • Personal hobbies: If the groom has any personal hobbies or interests, capture them in the photos. For example, if he’s a musician, photograph him playing his instrument.


Ultimately, the key to capturing great groom prep photos is to be creative and personalized. Every groom is unique, and their photos should reflect their personality and style. With these ideas in mind, a photographer can create a beautiful and meaningful album that the couple will cherish for years to come.
