{Early} Moments- Makeup

Before my first semi-formal dance in high school, my mom insisted on taking photos of me putting on my make-up. Although I went along with it, I didn't understand why she wanted to capture those images; once the film was developed, however, at the risk of sounding vain, I had to admit there was something intriguing about having documented those moments of preparation.

I love seeing photos capturing the early moments of a wedding day; the moments spent getting ready for the big event. Moments that are surely filled with anticipation, excitement, and nerves. Moments that are sometimes spent alone and often spent surrounded by friends and family.

To start the next installment in the Moments series, {Early} Moments, I'd like to share these beautiful images of brides in the midst of their big day beauty routines.

Getting ready photos are always so intimate. I love them. Each bride can't help but be gorgeous even before the makeup!

Those are really cool pictures. I would love to have pictures of myself getting ready for prom. Too bad that was like a million years ago. Anyways, great collection, thanks for sharing!
