Wedding Day | Flat Lays

Flat-lays are a beautiful way to bring together your style, tell your unique wedding story and give a glimpse into who you are as a couple!

I know how carefully you two have chosen these special items – the flat lays captured provide you with artistically styled imagery as a keepsake that lasts well beyond your wedding day.

Below you will find a packing list for both the bride and groom. Along with helpful tips, suggestions and additional information!

Flat Lay tips and suggestions:

Communicate with your florist to have loose florals and greenery available (early in the day) specifically for styling your wedding day details. This will help your flat lay imagery coordinate with your overall wedding day colors and vibe. Not to mention add in beautiful texture and dimension!

Have all your details together in a box or bag ready for when I arrive. This ensures I have all the time scheduled to style and photograph your special flat lays!

Additional Information:

On the wedding day, I typically arrive to the bridal suite first thing (say hi & give hugs!) grab all the details and either photograph in the suite or if needed, find a bright, white area to do so.

I try and keep my flat lays simple and timeless – and true to you and your style 🙂 I have a collection of styling boards in various textures and colors that provide a clean, solid space for me to style and photograph. I choose the board color based on your wedding colors and which will compliment all the details best!
