IMG_5606 I'm going to share with you five of my favorite wedding dresses and why.  These are all dresses that I photographed.  If I went onto google and just looked for dresses I liked we'd be here all day!  It was hard enough picking some out from all my beautiful brides!  I hope the ones I chose inspire you while you are out looking for your own.

There is a lot to love about this dress!  One of the most important aspects of a dress is fit.  Make sure that you have several fittings to make sure the dress is perfect on your big day.  Morgan's dress fit her perfectly.  I also love the champagne colored ribbon that helps to define her waist, the sheer lace detail along the top and all along the dress.  The sheer sleeveless top gives it a different look than just going strapless.


Catherine's dress was elegant and timeless.  I just love the contrast of the satin skirt with the lace bust.  This was a November wedding so the three quarter length sleeves provided a little extra warmth (although lets face it not much!) as well as an opportunity for some more gorgeous detailing.

Terri's non traditional dress in red was so much fun!  I know Mother of the Bride's everywhere are cringing when they hear me say it, but non traditional is great.  If you are a Bride looking for a different wedding, go with a different dress!  There are so many beautiful options out there these days in a variety of colors and textures.  Just get on pinterest and pin to your hearts content.


Give me lace any day!  Jodi's lace dress was beautiful and (seemed to be) comfortable.  She had beautiful lace detailing in the back.  She even had lace flats to match!   I love that Jodi went with a full length veil that gave it all a little drama and was really fun to photograph.


Erika's gown was beautiful and simple.  However her custom veil from White Orchid Bridal took the whole look to another level.  The veil gave her bridal look an Old World feel which tied in perfectly with Erika and Travis' wedding theme.   If you are looking for a custom, handmade gown or veil I highly recommend talking to Colleen at White Orchid.

I hope these looks inspired you!  I am always available to recommend dress vendors and designers.  Have fun trying on tons of dresses and I hope you fall in love with a dress of your own.
