Making a Wedding Dress

I'm basically in love with weddings. All of the emotions, the details, the happiness...etc. etc. I also love all of the couples I have worked with this far. They are creative, fun, interesting, and just all around amazing.

As you already know from two blogs ago, one of my lovely brides is making her own wedding dress! I got the opportunity to hang out with her at her place while she described the different processes that went into making her dress. I feel very lucky that I had the chance to document the making of this dress. ...Oh! And did I mention she makes delicious pasta?

Here are some photos of the cutting, sewing, measuring, ironing, and more sewing that took place:

She has the cutest pin cushions!

Here's a sneak peak of the (almost finished) dress! You'll get to see it finished in all of it's glory come May!!


  1. Its almoust like postprocess in PS :)

  2. She must be uber-talented to do this...

  3. I so love the whole idea of this post, inside and out !!

    Very well done, awesome work.

  4. Very cool concept. A totally unique take on shooting the "prep" for the wedding. The pictures came out great. Well done.

  5. WOW! That takes talent!! I wish her the best! You did a great job with these detail shots, can't wait to see how it turns out!

  6. What a brilliant opportunity to capture. I absolutely cannot wait to see it in all it's glory.
