If you follow me on Twitter, you may have caught this last week, but the more I looked at photographer's blogs, the more they surfaced - ugly hangers.
Ooh, how I love the dress shot - a perfectly pressed gown, all ready for the bride to slip into. There's one little detail I didn't think of on my wedding day. Yep, I learned the hard way - my own wedding gown is up there in the lineup. Love the dress, love the shot, but loathe the hanger. It's the cheap plastic hanger with the size sticker. What was I thinking?
I didn't think to change the plastic hanger to a wooden hanger. Oh no, why would I do that? Three words - The Dress Shot. I recently added an Ikea wooden hanger to my emergency kit. I realize it's not the end of the world, but wouldn't any one of those photos look better with an equally eye-pleasing hanger? Yes.
[The photos above are by some of my absolute favorite photographers in the country. But I'm not naming-names on this one...]
