Photographing a wedding = don't know what to wear
You’re getting ready to photograph a wedding, but you don’t know what to wear! This happens to me all of the time. You don’t want to be too dressed up, but you don’t want to be too casual. You don’t wan to be too hot while you are running around, but you want to look professional. These are my thoughts on a daily basis, and to be honest, sometimes I feel like it takes me longer to figure out what to wear to the wedding then get ideas of what I want to shoot, as well as getting my gear together. I have been pondering this idea for a while… And I finally decided, I can’t be the only one with this problem. Girls, please tell me I’m not the only one! I’m here to save the world… Well, I guess I’m here to help with your outfits for those long, hot, wedding days.
Let's get started!
A-line dresses are my absolute favorite! They are cute, but casual, and so comfortable. When shooting a wedding, I am always bending down, sitting on the floor, doing the craziest poses to get the best image. With A-line dresses, I don't have to worry about my "stomach" hanging out. Have some fun with color, and jazz your outfit up with some fun accessories! Check these out, you might want to go shop!
