Bride Tips From Dax Photography: Where to get ready. This is something that is often times an afterthought for most brides. However, as a photographer it makes a HUGE difference! I totally understand that you may be limited by the venue/location and that's perfectly fine (I'll get creative with it for sure). But just keep this in the back of your mind when selecting where to get ready on your wedding day...ideally it's a large open room with lots of natural light, the walls aren't cluttered and the lights in the room aren't a mix (i.e. fluorescent and normal bulbs), there's plenty of seating and mirrors for you and your girls to get ready.
