What Kate Ann Wears: Photographing a Wedding

March 19, 2015 in For Photographers, Personal

I have always enjoyed getting dressed in the morning and love putting unique outfits together. Early on in my photography journey I wanted to shoot fashion. I even studied fashion photography for a semester in London. However, soon after that I fell in love with documenting weddings and have never looked back.

Today I am starting a series in which I will be bringing my personal style to the blog! One thing I struggled with when I first started shooting weddings was “What do I wear!?” First and foremost you should dress for your brand. I shoot a lot of weddings that center around the great outdoors, so whimsical summer dresses have alway been a great fit. I alway try to find a dress that extends from my collarbone to my knees. Medium length dresses with a high neckline look professional and are easy to work in. I never wear necklaces on a wedding day because they get caught in my camera strap. (My cameras are my bling!) 

The dress featured below is a great length and cut for my body. I love the fun color blocking and light airy fabric! My shoes are a sandal-boot hybrid. They cover like a boot, which is great for trucking through the forest, but have slits like a sandal, which is perfect for those warm summer days! I purchased this dress on the sale rack at Anthropologie and I ordered the shoes online at Urban Outfitters.

Thank you Jenna from Pop the Cork Designs for helping me out with these pictures!

Such a pretty outfit! It totally struggle with what to wear on wedding days. Usually settle for something black. Time to add some color! :)

I love that dress!!! I always go black and definitely feel that this inspires me to add some color.
