Little Lovelies wedding Accessories
What a day we had photographing our latest Little Lovelies jewellery collection. Photographing jewellery is a much more relaxed shoot, no worrying about models, makeup and hair choices and the much more reasonable 10am start time feels good.
Lee Bird Studios in Keysborough designed a custom light box to get the upmost sparkle from each piece of Jewellery whilst highlighting the intricate work and letting each individual crystal shimmer.
Starting with the Love Me Earring Set, we worked hard to find the best positioning for each piece. It’s might be hard to believe but this one earring shot took 45 minutes. You can see the difference between the professional photo and mine here (I did try, but quite didn’t do the pieces justice)
After earrings, we started on hairpieces. My personal favorite is called the Classic Hair Comb and is perfect for a bridal up-do or debutante half up half down style. Doesn’t it look stunning!
After lunch, we regained our stamina, changed lenses and tackled the beautiful beaded belts to finish. And then, as they say, it was a wrap!
In this Little Lovelies collection, I wanted to focus on effortless wearability and complimentary pieces that would not overwhelm the brides natural beauty or take focus away from the gown and could also be easily worn to future events.
Top 5 Tips for perfect photos on your wedding day.
1) Take photos in a sheltered area using natural light like inside a window; it will soften the light and capture you at your best.
2) If you are going to take photos in your house, pre-plan so you can organise the furniture and surroundings in a visually pleasing way. You don’t want your wedding or deb photos to remind you of your messy bedroom.
3) Let your make up artist go for a slightly more dramatic look than your usual style; this might feel strange at first, but will make your features pop in photos. But if you have a favourite lipstick, ask your makeup artist to use it for a touch of your familiar style.
4) Don’t boss around the photographer. Remember you like their style so let them direct you. Standing a certain way might feel unnatural, but once you see the finished product it will all make sense and be worth it.
5) Find a photographer that captures the essence of not only your wedding but who you are as a couple. I know it all adds up, but choosing based purely on price is a big mistake, one you will regret every time you see those photos on the wall.
