Wedding planning is no joke, folks! Even if you’re a seasoned pro, something is bound to go awry. But don’t fret – that’s where your trusty emergency kit comes in! Think of it as insurance for your big day. Below is a list of items that I’ve seen brides need over the 13 years I’ve been photographing weddings. You don’t necessarily need everything, but better safe than sorry, am I right?

Pro tip: Keep it compact, people! You don’t want a massive bag weighing you down. These items can be found at any pharmacy, Target, Walmart, or you can just let Amazon work their magic.

Oh, and a little PSA: Remember, this is the day you’re marrying your best friend! So if something small does go awry, don’t sweat it. It’s all about the love, baby!

Whether you are the maid of honor (you are a good friend!!) or the bride herself who wants to ensure the wedding goes well, this list is super helpful for any little emergency.  Also, it makes an amazing honeymoon emergency kit after the wedding!

Extra bonus tip: Share this post with your maid-of-honor and split the shopping list with your bridesmaids. Teamwork makes the dream work, after all!

These are all products I’ve used or my brides have used and loved!

Five Reasons To Take Family Photos Every Year

Family portraits are often put on the back burner due to busy schedules, but it’s important to take the time to have professional family photos taken every year.

These photos aren’t just for yourself, but for future generations to look back on and cherish. You never know when the last chance for a family photo will be, and it’s important to take advantage of the time you have together now.
