Wedding Photography Tips: The Dress
After saying yes to your perfect wedding dress, there’s no doubt you want a beautiful photograph of your wedding gown. We have put together the following tips for you which you can do even before we arrive. These tips will help us get a beautiful photograph as efficiently as possible so we can focus on capturing the real beautiful moments which are of you and your loved ones as you prepare for your wedding day.
Bridal boutiques are experts at pressing your gown to perfection. As part of making sure your dress remains is its best condition, they can often hang your dress on a plastic or wire hanger. These plastic and wire hangers are not the prettiest and don’t photograph well either. A pretty fabric or wooden hanger is a huge improvement and complement the elegance of your dress. You can also obtain personalised hangers with your name on it from Etsy which look really cute 🙂
On the day of your wedding, someone can help you to transfer the dress to your own hanger which will not only look much better, but are built much stronger to hold the weight of your dress. It is amazing how heavy a wedding dress can be and plastic or wire hangers just can’t hold up to the job!

Together, we’ll find the best place (with the best light!) for this truly magical moment to happen. This is a truly memorable moment that we want to make sure we capture beautifully.
