What to Wear – Bridal PortraitsFAQ

The brides look sets the tone for the wedding day and here are some tips for bridal portraits & the big day!

Lightly Photography 2014 http://lightllyphoto.com

FITTINGS – Now that you have selected ‘the one’ (your gown, not the groom) the next step is a flawless fit. Invest in your alterations and bustling. The bustle is what pulls the train of your gown up off the floor so you can comfortably dance. This is a separate charge from your fitting fees so please remember to ask your seamstress or dress store about what style of bustle will best accentuate the cut & style of your dress.

UNDERGARMENTS – Finding the right undergarments is also important, you want to feel sexy & aid the way the dress fits. Hunt out the right foundation to your style: a great bra, corset or a full body support system to make sure you feel sexier & thinner. When in doubt return to your dress boutique, they can always help you with style choices.

SHOES – Have fun & show off your personality and style from a super chic colored shoe to traditional white. Wear your shoes at home ahead of time to break them in.  We have brides that swear by wearing them with athletic socks around the house before the wedding to make them more comfy.  If your selection might be a bit uncomfortable plan an alternate like ballet flats. Bring both options to your bridal portrait and put a trusted bridesmaid in charge of the alternate pair for the reception.

HAIR & MAKEUP – Staying true to your style is key when it comes to hair and makeup. Let your artists know exactly what you want. Photo retouching is costly and not available on all those cell phone photos your friends are bound to take so make sure you look flawless in all photos by hiring pros.  If you have extensions find a hairdresser that is familiar styling them.  To wear your hair up or down – that is always the question!  We love your hair either way but do think about your wedding day personality – if you imagine yourself rarely leaving the dance floor than an up-do is bound to look more flawless all night long!

FLOWERS – Ask your florist if she can provide you with a trial bouquet for your bridal portrait.  This is a great chance to see a trial run of your wedding day floral and make sure that the colors and stems are just what you were envisioning.

WHEN – This session needs to be scheduled 1 or more months in advance of your wedding and you should have your entire look, head to toe the day of the session. For your bridal location we suggest sharing images of your gown with us and discussing the feeling you want for your portrait. Be aware that indoor and specialty locations must be scheduled and fees apply.  What if you aren’t having bridal portraits?  Don’t worry we will still photograph you alone and achieve a beautiful portrait of you in your dress the day of the wedding.

Parmis & Payam – Wedding CeremonyRosewood Mansion at Turtle Creek in Dallas, TX

Lightly Photography 2016

This day was such an exciting event to participate in and I finally get to share some of my favorite moments.  Parmis and Payam got married at the beautiful Rosewood Mansion at Turtle Creek in Dallas, TX.  There was so much excitement in the bride’s room as she prepared for the day.  She wore a long sleeve, laced gown with a gorgeous double layer veil.  Parmis and Payam chose to do a first look and his reaction to his stunning bride was perfect!  During the ceremony, the couple’s female family and friends held a canopy over the couple while people took turns grinding two sugar cones over them, symbolically showering the couple in sweetness.

A special thanks to all the great vendors:

Jenna & Raymond – Wedding Ceremony and ReceptionWedding at Marty Leonard Chapel, Reception at the Courtyard Fort Worth West at City View Hotel

Lightly Photography 2016

I enjoyed getting to know this sweet couple during their intimate, Friday wedding.  Jenna is from Arkansas and the groom, Raymond, is from Odessa and decided to get married in Fort Worth because of the beautiful Marty Leonard Chapel.  This couple actually met through a video game so there are fun touches of video games throughout their day, such as the cuff links of all the groomsmen and the groom’s cake.  Here are some of my favorite moments from the day.  Congratulations Jenna & Raymond!
