When I first started wedding photography, I thought, "I need every black dress in this store." I mean, black is always in and yes, I still wear black dresses. BUT I also think it's important to stay true to your style and yourself when you're photographing events/weddings/people. My philosophy? Switch it up and simply just wear what you feel good in! Something comfortable, but cute, and something that is easy to move around in because you better believe photography is a small little workout. Trust me, I sweat (a lot), my make-up is GONE within an hour, and I find myself out of breathe
The amazing gals Lulu's and I decided to team up and come up with some looks for photographers. I have some wedding outfits planned coming y'alls way but for now, I wanted to start with THIS DRESS.
I wore it recently to an engagement session (and even a wedding!) and absolutely LOVED it. It was roomy, long enough to stay modest when I had to drop it like it was HAWT (haha) AND you couldn't see up my dress (trust me, THIS has happened to me before - face. palm. & lesson. learned). #redfacesunite (P.s.) I am not preggo. It just looks like it in that photo above. This is what happens when you don't suck in and don't photoshop your gut out. That's all. I LIKE POTATOES OKAY!
THE best part? IT. HAS. POCKETS. POCKETS PEOPLE! (I forgot to take a photo with my hands in my pockets, but I swear they are there!)
I also could easily put my phone/camera cards/ etc. and not feel like I would lose them. I'm just obsessed.
Lulu's has an amazing selection of clothing y'all. They have something for everyone, for any occasion, but what I think is great is that there are so many cute and fun things for photographers to wear! Black can work, but so can a dress like this. I got so many compliments on it and I was SO comfortable. Also, the quality of the material is AWESOME and the size was dead on! You seriously can't beat that.
YOU CAN GET THIS DRESS HERE. DO it. I promise you will love it! :)
I am so excited for this little series y'all! I'll be back with more posts/outfits very soon! :)
P.s.) Just between you and me... It's probably not 100% safe to jump like a freak in any dress...or this could happen.
P.s.s.) Head over The Glow Workshop website to read an interview from one of our amazing sponsors, Lara Casey! :) 12 days away, I can barely stand it! :)
