4. ENCOURAGE COUPLES TO HIKE IN THEIR WEDDING ATTIRE

Most of the time, this is done after the ceremony, but many couples hike to their ceremony in their attire. Capture them as they are hiking because scenery changes, light changes, moments happen and inspiration happens. You have to be ready. It’s not just about the destination—the journey has beautiful moments along the way. Have them wear boots or whatever your environment encourages. Bring the bouquet, the veil, makeup, touch-up kit, etc. Just be cautious about hiking too far, as sweat, too much dirt and messy hair suddenly doesn’t look as good in your images. I have rare couples who will do whatever it takes for photos, but most people want to look good, even if they say they don’t care. If you hike, know your environment, and bring what’s necessary to make your couples look their best.
