I've thought the same thing about maybe taking a photo for the folder, but haven't done it yet either. The reality is, forget the groom, I sometimes don't even recognize the bride. We're arriving before her gown or veil go on, of course, so we're walking into this room of a half dozen strange women in robes and sweats . . . I don't know which one is the bride! And even if I took a picture, they always look so different.
In January, I worked with a very large bride with a pretty distinctive appearance. But she looked so different with the professionally done hair and make-up, I couldn't believe it was the same person. And then when they came to see their images afterwards, she looked like the women I met nearly a year ago. But I have NO idea who was wearing that wedding dress because it sure didn't seem to be her!
Ya, if they put on make up before we get there, we are pretty much sh!t outa luck especially with a good make-up artist.
