The Dress Photo

The Dress Photo


When your photographer turns up on your wedding day morning, you will be busily being pampered and fussed over by your makeup artist, hair stylist, bridesmaids and your mother. Before you get dressed, your awesome Sunshine Coast wedding photographer will ask to be directed to the beautiful wedding dress you plan to marry your beloved in. Now, you could have it hanging limp and lifeless in your wardrobe... Or you could have a grand plan for the photo they will inevitably take.

Look around before the time comes and find something beautiful, funky, cool and creative to do with your bridal gown for the dress photo. Think outside the box - not even the old Hills Hoist is out of the question!

Personalised hangers are very special

Utilise the other decor, especially if it goes with your wedding theme. And a crochet hanger is always a winner
