Grooms & Groomsmen Haircuts

I got my haircut the other day because I'll be shooting a wedding this weekend! I don’t know about you, but if I know that I have a function coming up, like a family event, invited to a party, shooting a wedding or going away for a holiday - I get my hair cut.


Why is important for a Groom to have his hair cut and styled for the big day?

Betsy Franklin said "Your Wedding photos will reveal if you are groomed or not. Get a fresh cut 1-2 weeks before your wedding day. If your neck and hairline are unruly it will be noticeable in the pictures. If your hair grows quickly, (most men's do) and there is time, ask your stylist or barber for a clean up around your neck and hairline a day or two before." 

Betsy also added "My husband wears short hair and it grows quickly, we were so busy we forgot to schedule a haircut for him. When we look at our wedding photographs it’s the first thing we notice, it just didn't look like him."


Thinking of Trying a New Hair Style?

If you decide you'd like to try a new hair style or something that is not the norm for you, speak with your stylist a few months before your wedding day. That way you'll have plenty of time to change to change back to your old style well before the big day.

Huge thanks to Betsy for answering my many questions, go over to Dyer & Posta's website to see how creative Betsy and the salon are. Have a great weekend, look out for the answers to other “guy” haircut questions soon.

SMITH-GILBERT GARDENS, KENNESAW, GEORGIA WEDDING PHOTOGRAPHY

Smith-Gilbert Gardens in Kennesaw, Georgia is one of the Atlanta Metros hidden gems. Imagine having your wedding photography shot in this unique, small wedding venue within a botanical garden.

Living in Kennesaw myself, Smith-Gilbert Gardens is a wedding venue near me that I love and visit often.

I've shot many, many times at Smith-Gilbert Gardens and I can, from experience say that there is definetley something for everyone and it is constantly changing with the seasons.


Engagement Photos

Engagement photography sessions are so special here, as I can always find a super cool backdrop for my couples what ever the weather or season. Depending on the couple, I might stay in one fairly close area for the whole session or spend a little time just wandering around with them and capturing the mood as it unfolds.


Wedding Photos

With awesome opportunities for pre-ceremony photography in and around the Hiram Butler House (ca.1880) this small Georgia Wedding Venue offers so much. If "First Look" is on your agenda, I would love to help you plan, execute and document this special moment before your wedding ceremony.


Bridal & Groom Portraits

After the ceremony wedding photography can be so relaxing here in the tranquility of the garden. I think it's a moment for newly-weds to catch their breath and let me create some stunning portraits for them in a more intimate setting.


Let me know if you have any questions or visit my website and I'll be happy to help.
