Happy Wednesday My Beautiful Friends!
Every year, Johnny and I like to do a photoshoot so we have updated photos. I have been searching for a theme and then I saw this whimsical bell sleeve dress from Milly. I fell in love instantly. So many things drew me to this dress. The pale almost periwinkle blue is unlike anything I have ever seen. The bell sleeves are dramatic, yet so chic and elegant. Most of all, the dress gave off the most feminine, almost fairy-like feel. The neckline does plunge quite a bit, but I didn’t have any reservations about it. This dress comes in a few different colors including blush and black. Sizes seem to be selling out quickly, so if this dress entrances you, snap it up! It’s perfect for a special occasion.
I know many of my readers are in the age of getting engaged and married, so I’m to share some photoshoot advice since Johnny and I have quite a few under our belt. Firstly, selecting a photographer who makes you comfortable is key. For this shoot, Johnny and I teamed up with Brandon Hill who is based in Austin. Brandon is a fantastic laid-back photographer who is a joy to work with! He’s great at directing, but also letting you do your thing. This allows him to capture authentic moments between you and your other half.
Next up, styling for the shoot is important to get the outcome you’re looking for. I like to stick to solid colors, but if you have something patterned you are in love with style around it! Choose something easy to wear and doesn’t wrinkle that way you can focus on the shoot and not how your clothes look. Try and stay away from clothes requiring too much maintenance or constant adjustment.
Finally, HAVE FUN! Enjoy the time with your other half. Johnny loves to whisper cute things to me while we’re shooting or he’s usually saying something funny like, “It’s like your favorite snapchat filter, but in real life!” when referring to my flower crown.
