The Groom’s preparation is often overlooked by couples when scheduling their photography for the day and I’d really love to change that. For me, it’s one of my favorite parts of the wedding prep because the groom and his friends are always having so much fun that morning! A lot of Groom’s feel like this time isn’t really important, because they’ll just throw on a suit and run out the door. But it’s not just about getting dressed! The important moments of the morning happen when you spend time with your groomsmen…when you have 5 men crowded around a laptop watching how to tie a bow-tie! Or when you can crack open the champagne or scotch and have a nerve-calming drink before heading to the ceremony.
I think Myles’ morning is a great example of what can be captured in your photos during this time. The boys had funny NBA-themed socks, paired with thoughtful engraved hip-flasks and perfectly tailored tuxes. Combining those personal touches with best mates and a few drinks and you have a really amazing and memorable morning with your boys, captured on film!
These Groom preparations were in the loft of one of the groomsmen, Anthony. His apartment is in Glebe, NSW and was the perfect setting for the boys to get ready. High ceilings combined with large windows created awesome light in the photos. Anthony also has very good design taste, combining retro furniture with modern, industrial pieces.
