It's February! I know, I know...I can't believe it either! This is a big month for Dale and I...our wedding anniversary is in just four more days on Superbowl Sunday, and his 31st birthday is on the 25th. That, and Valentine's Day, of course ;) All of our celebrations tend to get mushed together though. Our trip to Hawaii was our big anniversary celebration, so I'm happy :)
I've been particularly inspired by wedding photography lately, so I thought that it was about time that I do a "Picks on Paper" on the subject, somehow. I decided to focus on bridesmaids photos, in particular...they can be so important, don't you think? When else will you get amazing professional photos of your closest girlfriends and family members, all dressed up with hair and makeup? Plus, it's always fun to see what sort of bridesmaid dresses - colors, fabrics, and yes, combinations - are out there when you're deciding what your own bridal party will wear. Will you go "Matchy, Matchy," or mix it up and allow your girls to pick their own dresses? Will you choose to mix prints and colors, or will you have everyone where the same one? Then there are the shoes, hairstyles, accessories...so much to decide! This is the fun stuff though, in my opinion :)
I've searched high and low for lots and lots of bridesmaid photos, and divided them by the specific pose/scenario - 1. All in a Row, 2. Getting Ready, 3. Casual & Fun, 4. Shoes & Dresses and 5. Best Friends & Close Embraces.
