Photographing Your Wedding Shoes

Some people just don’t understand the need for the ultimate wedding shoe. Have they never seen Cinderella? Come ON. Every girl needs her very own pair of glass slippers. Your shoes are the make or break accessory of the day. Nothing less than fantastic is worthy of being in such close proximity to a bridal gown. That’s why we’ve been so happy to see such a growing collection of wedding shoe photography. Whether they’re snapping wedding Choos (get it? Jimmy Choos!) in elaborate settings or photographing the bride slipping her feet into her first pair of Louboutins, photographers are finally coming around to the idea that a bride’s shoes are just as important as her hair, makeup and jewelry combined.

Here are some popular ways of photographing your wedding shoes
