As a guy I must admit that I know way more about wedding dresses than I can comfortably admit. Because I’m tall and able to hang the dresses easily it’s mostly my job to take the hanging dress pictures before the bride gets ready. And I really don’t mind because they are all so unique in detail and each venue adds it’s own element into the composition. I always look for the right light and strive not to take the same picture twice. Here are some of our favorite wedding dress shots from this year.
I don’t often take the wedding dresses into the kitchen. But at Drumore Estate every square inch is picture perfect. This is one of about 4 different locations I shot Heidi’s Augusta Jones dress from Cocoa Couture.
Often times hotels don’t have a lot of options for dress shots. But you can always find stunning light beside a large window. And the Cork Factory Hotel’s brick walls add a nice touch of texture to this shot of Erin’s Martina Liana gown.
We’ve seen more and more personalized hangers this year. We’re hoping this is a trend that stays. It’s way nicer than the ‘ol .25 cent plastic hanger that comes with most gowns. Here is Jordan’s Robin Jillian dress hanging on the balcony at Riverdale Manor.
Love the light on the bridesmaids dresses at Justine & James‘ wedding.
Love the light coming through the window on Amanda’s dress.
