Summer weddings are some of my favorites. Sunset is at 9pm. Everything is lush and green.
The downfall? It is
Photographing a wedding is a lot of work. There is quite a bit of running around, many ninja moves, and not a lot of time for rest.
Finding outfits that are both flattering for a female, and yet professional at the same time can sometimes be a task. I want to always be #1 Comfortable, #2 Present myself professionally, and #3 Look good.
So, I thought I would share my top three favorite outfits for photographing warm weather weddings. I will try my best to provide brands and stores I bought everything at. Feel free to share with your photographer friends!
This adorable pencil skirt was stolen from my sweet mom’s closet years ago.
I paired it with a simple black scoop-neck top, some nude ballet flats and a couple interchangeable necklaces from Forever 21.
Pencil skirts are always a win for me while working because they stay close to my body on a windy day, the elastic waist-band gives me movement and when a top is tucked in, everything stays together in one piece.
Earrings from Nordstrom Rack ($8.99)
New favorite necklaces from Forever 21 online ($3.99)
TJ Maxx ballet flats, all the way. Completely comfortable, light to move in, and only $19.99. I wear through shoes like crazy, so I have a hard time justifying very expensive shoes. These were a steal!
This is hands-down one of my new favorites for the season. Another TJ Maxx find.
(I basically live in that store.) The Park City Utah and Temecula CA branch are the best.
On extremely hot days it is great to have a dress with light-airy fabric that doesn’t stick to you. Nothing worse. I love having the buttons and collar on this, I feel it really frames everything and creates nice lines, while still being feminine.
These shoes are by Tommy Hilfiger, and the colors match perfectly to the dress. Very comfortable, and again, $19.99 at TJ.
This dress is by Adrienne Vittadini.
Calvin Klein for the win every.single.time.
The cut is always fabulous, great material, and lasts.
Simple black flats to tie in with the black blocks of color in the dress.
I wasn’t able to find this exact dress however, there are multiple of the same style on their site. Here. Or, just head over to (cough cough) TJ Maxx like I did.
I hope these are helpful or inspire new ideas for your photography wardrobe! Please let me know if these types of blogs are interesting and I would love to do more!
