Ask any respected and professional wedding photographer and they’ll all agree, the bridal shoes can play a very special part in the photographs and styling on the day.
Take this back to basics, and translated it means, you need to think carefully about the shoes you choose, as they will be forever a part of your memories and of course your treasured keepsake – the wedding album.
While we at Trousseau pondered this idea, we decided to have a bit of a brain-storming session on what OUR favourite ‘wedding shots’ featuring wedding shoes were. While we came up with many answers, we knew for the purposes of this blog we needed to narrow it down to FIVE...and here they are:
- The pre-wedding styled pictures – Often featuring wedding dress, wedding shoes, jewellery and flowers.
- The bridal walk down the aisle. Left foot forward and showing a tantalising peek of wedding shoe under the gown.
- The fun bridal party or couple shot – Often candid. ie groom carrying bride or entire bridal party leaping for joy.
- The first dance – The wedding shoes can really be wow factor here.
- The bride and groom or bride and bride garter shot – Need we say anymore!
Waiheke Island based wedding photographer, Sonja Read from Sonja Read Photography agrees “As a photographer, I look forward to seeing the brides choice of shoes, often as much as her dress. The bride can take it as an opportunity to add a splash of extravagance to her outfit. Depending on the style of dress, they can be hidden and discreet or take center stage. Either way they will definitely be photographed on the day.
More importantly shoes can transform the way you feel inside and a great pair of shoes can truly make you feel 'out of this world'. These feelings mixed with others will shine throughout your photographs, it is what I like to capture.”
So whatever your wedding shoe taste, style or preference is. Make sure you think about the lasting memories these shoes will be apart of and STEP out in shoes you will feel proud showing off to your children and their children in your wedding album for years to come.
