Perfect Wedding Guest Dress - Minty Lace

Dress: Asos (Comes in pink. Petite 00 fit perfectly! Maxi version here) / Earrings: The Shopping Bag c/o / Clutch: Gigi New York c/o / Sunnies: Kate Spade  / Shoes / Lips: Colourpop-Lumiere
A couple weeks ago I get a call from my mom telling me that she is getting married. My parents have been divorced since I was 1, and neither of them have gotten remarried. 

She then continues to tell me that they are getting married this July. After getting off the phone with my mom I turned to Todd completely shocked. How is she getting married if the guy she's marrying I didn't even know existed?! After much thinking I eventually came to my senses, and was so happy for her. She was completely twitter pated, and that alone was enough for me to feel at ease about her courtship. I also was reminded of my own engagement, and how I had no room to judge. When Todd and I were first dating my family didn't even know about him until closer to our engagement 8 months later. Before Todd I was in an on and off again relationship for years, and was weary of who I introduced to the family. When I told my family the news of our engagement they were shocked, but ecstatic for this baby of the family to get married. 

After the announcement of my mom's engagement I started looking for a dress to wear immediately. I wanted something light weight for July, romantic, and pleated. A while ago I was putting together a blog collage, and came across this dress. I wanted to use it for a "wedding guest" inspiration collage, but my mom's wedding beat me to it. I've never ordered from ASOS petite line before, and wasn't quite sure how it would fit. I was beyond thrilled when this dress fit perfectly everywhere. It seriously is such a rare occasion when a DRESS doesn't needed to be altered. When Todd saw me in this dress for the first time he said it was the prettiest dress he's seen me wear. Since I am a dress hoarder this means a lot since my dress collection is endless. I know that this dress will be the perfect thing for my mom's wedding!

  3. However, you can pump up the game by putting a bit of extra effort, choosing backgrounds and depth of field that complements your street fashion photography session. Keep the foreground minimal and less busy and use various lines and unusual angles to help with the visual pop.

  5. While shooting for street fashion photography, a photographer tries to maximize the efficiency of the entire process. Acting hastily might get the task done, but with no creativity, the task remains in vain. Moreover, each photographer carries his/her own style of executing street fashion photography while taking on situational demands. best wedding photography
