Three Must Have Bridal Looks

Wedding Ideas

You’re getting married and if you are anything like my friends and I, the first think you did after you got engaged was start pinning away your favorite gowns, hairs styles, and makeup looks for your Wedding Look. And why not? Your Bridal Style makes such a statement about who you are… you’ve dreamt and planned, but now it is real. It can be a bit overwhelming selecting your wedding wardrobe, so let me guide you through three must have bridal looks.

Let me guide you through three must have bridal looks that will not only speak volumes of who you are as Bride, but also influence your Wedding plans altogether.

Your Wedding Gown

Of course this look is  already on your list already but there are a few things you may not have thought through as you make your gown selection.

  1. Where are you planning to get married?

    Your gown style should reflect or influence the setting of your Wedding. Consider the tones, the architecture, and the natural beauty present in your venue. Your look should harmonize with these elements.

  2. What are you planning to do in your gown?

    If you’ve got long distances to walk, stairs to climb, or even choreographed first dance consider what type of gown shape and fabric will accentuate these movements.

  3. What season are you getting married in?

    Of course temperature matters, but there are other seasonal elements to consider such as the colors in the trees, the tone of your skin in the winter. It is always best not to fight nature, but rather harness it’s beauty (you could check here healthy skincare products). Give into the wind and let your gown and your locks flow freely.

Getting Ready Look

On the day you get married everything should be special! You will spend several hours on the day of your Wedding having out with your girls in the bridal suite while you are all getting pampered by your make-up and hair team. And of course our photographer will be there capturing the beauty of this process as you prepare to promise forever to the one you love most. These moments of preparation are fun, wonderful, and worthy of an outfit that echoes the beauty of vows you are about to make.

Manda is
A creative genius!


I met Manda when she photographed a wedding I was maid of honor in. I got to know her throughout the wedding planning process and spent lots of time with her on the day of that wedding. Her demeanor, positive energy, and absolutely stunning shots made her a natural choice for me to select when I got engaged. She was an absolute joy to be around when she photographed my wedding. 
                                                                      Courtney & Mike

WOW all I can say is WOW!!! Hiring Manda as my wedding photographer was the absolute best decision I made for my wedding!!!

If you are looking for a photographer who will instantly make you (and your not photo-loving fiancé) feel completely at ease, who has the kindest heart and who will make your wedding look like an absolute dream you want Manda!
                                                                       Svetlana & Tyler

Manda was an absolute dream to work with! Capturing natural images of the joy and emotion on our wedding day was very important to us...
Manda excels at just that. 

 After looking at Manda's work and hearing story after story from others about how talented she is, we knew we had to have her capture our wedding. . She has the incredible ability to capture loving faces at just the right time and at just the right angle. She is thoughtful, courteous, and appreciates the value of a couple's wedding day.

She is incredibly creative and it shows through her work. We highly (highly) recommend Manda!!!!
