During Getting Ready shots, there is a fine art to hanging and photographing the wedding dress. The right presentation can make all the difference! To plan ahead on the day, we like to arrive early, and seek out unique scenes and backgrounds. By factoring in more time, it allows us to get very creative with the wedding dress photography. With your permission, we may even take the dress beyond the bridal suite, to showcase different areas around your venue!
Here are some of our favorite hanging dress photos from recent weddings. Enjoy :)
For Lisa and Simon's wedding, we used the modern wood architecture of Scripps Seaside Forum as a colorful background for the Lisa's beautiful dress, designed by Pronovias.
For a bold dress shot on Diana and Owen's wedding day, we decided to live life on the edge :) After noticing the leading lines of the hotel, we carefully hung Diana's dress (designed by Demetrios Brides) on the railing for this one-of-a-kind shot.
We like to incorporate the surrounding environment, such as chandeliers, textured doors, and even flower girls!
It's nice to photograph a quiet, introspective moment, while the dress is still hanging.
At Alison and Andrew's wedding, we made it a team effort, and incorporated all of Alison's bridesmaids dresses in the photo.
For extra volume and shape to the dress, we recommend bringing a wooden or velvet hanger, and having it nearby for us to photograph.
A customized hanger is a great way to show off your details before walking down the aisle, like during Eileen and Robbie's wedding at The Prado.
We don’t want to leave you hanging :) View more fun, creative ways to hang the wedding dress!
