Who’s capturing your big day?
We’ve all seen the sweet-but-serious wedding shots of couples looking far from comfortable in front of the camera. Our good friends looking less like themselves than they’ve ever been. Yes, they look beautiful, but they don’t look like the quirky, happy-go-lucky pals we’ve grown to love.
As plus-size wedding dress specialists, we’re all too familiar with the camera shy bride-to-be. We’ve had many a natter with ladies who are more nervous about the wedding photos than the wedding itself! That’s because they dread the overly formal and somewhat ‘staged’ style of traditional wedding photographers. And we don’t blame them.
Which is why we’re advocates of creative wedding photography, which allows the personality of the couple to shine through every snap. Creative wedding photographers are fantastic at capturing ‘moments’, rather than staging them. Whether that’s your nan roaring with laughter at the Best Man’s speech, or your hubby wiping away a tear as you walk down the aisle.
We’re currently working with one such creative wedding photographer, Lotus Photography. Emily is the brains behind the business, and we think she’s an absolute genius at capturing those unforgettable moments. She really takes the time to get to know the couple, so that their wedding day shots reflect their unique personality. Here’s just a handful of her work…
Emily is currently offering a free engagement shoot when you book her, which we think is totally amazing and a great way for you to get to know her before the big day. Why not take a look at her website, and if you like what you see (which we’re pretty sure you will!), ping her an email.
In the meantime, you can forget about practicing your camera pose… just be yourself and you’re bound to look absolutely gorgeous.
