    I don’t know anything about this, but the one wedding I attended, the bride did her shoot just before the ceremony started.

    Plus of doing it on a day before the wedding is trying out your entire look, making sure the makeup photographs well, etc.

    Plus of doing it after is that if there were any photos you really wanted the day of but ended up not getting, you can re-create them.

    I think both are good options!

    @Mrs.C.to.bee:  We scheduled a “day after” photo shoot (to get additional portraits of the two of us) for two weeks after our wedding and two days after we get back from our honeymoon.  Now I have a thread going about honeymoon weight gain and am terrified I’ll be too bloated to fit back into the dress!  Just something to think about.

    @Mrs.C.to.bee:  my bridal and wedding shoot was after the wedding itself, because I had a DW and seriously, nothing beat on-location at that point. I guess it’s really up to you 🙂
