It is said that a lady looks her best on her wedding day. This is true and other than a good makeup artist to enhance her looks, the wedding dress does wonders.
In most of the weddings, the wedding gown takes a huge chunk of the wedding budget despite the fact that it will be worn for 12 hours or less. A bridal store may offer to rent out wedding dresses instead of selling them.
It is therefore important to have good photos of the dress as it is of other parts of that day. A good photographer will capture great shots to help remind you of how breathtakingly beautiful you were on your wedding.
Some photos cannot be taken as you move about on your wedding so you and your groom can book an appointment and have them taken in a photography studio. Here are some ideas of shots that should not miss from your collection;
A picture of the wedding outfit hanging. Having your gown hanging on the wall against an interesting backdrop, like a beautifully painted wall, the sunset or a mirror is a classic look.
This helps you have a complete view of the gown and shows most, if not all of the details on it. You can include your shoes and jewelry. The bridesmaids’ dresses can also be included alongside it.
There are some details that matter. Your photographer can take photos as you are putting your dress on. Whether it’s a zipper, snap, button or bows, make sure he zooms in on the moment.
You can also get one as your bridal team is helping you with your final touches. As they help you straighten your dress, putting on your shoes or your veil, let the photographer capture it all.
Make sure to click lovely side shots. Taking side photos to show off all angles of the dress is a given. You can have a side shot taken holding your groom to show off more details. You can also have a side shot with your bridesmaids to remind you of your bridal style.
The backshot is truly needed. A photo of the back of the dress is a must especially if it has a lot of details or you just want to show it off. You can have one taken when standing in front of a window where the light is just right.
You could also have it taken with the groom for that romantic feel. Ask the photographer to zoom in so that the shot does not miss the delicate details of the dress.
