Tips To Capture The Perfect Wedding Dress Photos

Here are some tips from our professional wedding photographers to make sure you and your wedding dress are camera ready all day long.

  • Ask your florist to recommend flowers that won’t stain dresses or to remove any pieces that might.


  • Check with your gown shop to see if your dress can be steamed or ironed. If so, carry a mini iron and water bottle in case wrinkles form.


  • Choose dresses made of wrinkle resistant fabrics.


  • Carry a bleach pen in case of emergencies. Again, talk with the dress shop to make sure the color is safe.


  • Keep your dress protected in a garment bag whenever possible.


  • Use a deodorant and antiperspirant to keep you and your dress fresh – especially important for warm days.


  • Do your makeup before getting into the dress. Carry a drape cloth, towel or button up shirt to protect your dress during touchups.


  • Sip clear or light colored drinks – save the wed wine for another day.


  • Ask your dress consultant the proper way of getting into the dress. Some are better to step into and others slide down easiest.


  • If your dress does not include one, ask your seamstress to place a loop for lifting your train as you walk.


  • Assume that all doorways, benches and other surfaces have dirt on them. Use caution as you move throughout the day.


  • Purchase a few yards of similar fabric if you love the look of seated pictures but want to avoid mess.


  • Realize that your dress may get a few spots on it. Don’t let that ruin your wedding day.
