How a wedding dress hanger can change a photo | For brides

At every wedding, I take photos of the wedding dress by itself. Let’s face it – they’re gorgeous, and the bride spent a lot of money on those gorgeous gowns they are going to wear on such a special day in their life.

With that being said, it may be a good idea to look into getting a personalized wedding dress hanger, so that the beauty of your dress isn’t lessened by the lack of a nice hanger. In the beginning of my wedding photography career, a lot of the dresses I took photos of had the cheap plastic hangers from the bridal shop. After those first few weddings, I bought a “Bride” hanger to bring with me to weddings if they did not have one. I think it makes a huge difference! Also, it is sort of becoming a “thing” to have hangers customized with your new last name! They can be found all over Etsy for about twenty dollars!

Here are some photos to show you what I mean.


Having a nice wooden hanger just adds more elegance to such a beautiful dress! I will always have mine with me at weddings, but if you have your own special hanger for me to use that’s great!

You can usually find me adding books to my never-ending “to read” list; challenging myself to do things like not shop for a year; sneaking crispy m+ms from my secret hiding spot so I don’t have to share them with my daughter; and melting over seeing my children smiling at each other.

Oh and I guess I should mention - I’m a seasoned Portland wedding photographer who provides not only kick-ass wedding photos, but also a meaningful and laid-back experience from the time you book to the delivery of your final images.
