The Wedding Dress

The Primary Accessory

Brides-to-be invest more time, effort, and stress in the search for the right wedding dress than on any other component of their wedding day preparations. 

When she stands up in front of her family, friends, officiant, and her future husband, she's going to want to make an impression. The dress plays a big role in that impression.

The hanging dress photo is very important. It should be as unique as the dress itself. It should capture the personality the bride along with the unique vibe of the venue. You'll probably have only a minute or two to make it all come together.

The dress pictured above is from a wedding with a distinctive country theme. The rough wood contrasts with the silky material and fine details of the dress while reinforcing the feel of being in a country setting. Side lighting from a large, open door highlights the textures in the dress's decorative elements.

Bottom line, if you can capture a sharp and uniquely meaningful photo of the dress, the bride will treasure it forever.
