What Shoes to Wear on Your Wedding Day

Are you are a bride in need for some shoe style inspiration? Well we have got a few tips and style ideas which could help choosing your heels more wisely.

  • Choose heels that are mid length (2 inches high) – it makes walking around locations much more comfier
  • Bring a cute pair of flats. For example, the Melissa flats with heart bow ties are a fabulous choice. Steer away from flip flops, the reason being is that sometimes when we want to capture some natural walking shots. Though it happens rarely, we just don’t want you to look back and cringe at the fact that you had worn your slippers instead of your heels
  • Slide in some heel slip ons to protect your feet from rubbing
  • Wear your new heels in at least three months ahead so you are confident walking in them
  • Fact: Though high heels make you look taller, it actually makes your legs look slimmer and gives you a lovely S-Shape when you are having your full body portraits taken

Getting Ready Shoe Shots

The prettiest getting ready shoe shots are when the bride seats by the edge of the chair or bed by the window light, and putting on their heels with their engagement ring finger showing…

Pop of Colour

Why don’t you try colour?

Red, black, blue and glitter has been the most popular colour amongst brides. How about wearing sneakers on your weddding day?

Well that’s sore feet sorted for the entire day 🙂

Engagement Session: Rita & Chris

Chris proposed to Rita while having a picnic in their lounge room. At the time, Rita was recovering from her eye laser surgery, so having a ‘blind date’ together was the norm. It was only until the bling was slipped onto her finger, she couldn’t believe her eyes. She was marrying the guy of her dreams. Happy marriage this Saturday xo

Elise & Tom are Tying the Knot

We can’t believe how quickly the winter months have flown by and it is already Spring! You know what that means? The beginning of our busy wedding season! In fact, our studio hasn’t stopped churning. We have been ultra busy working on a few exciting commercial projects with Werribee Plaza, Roar Accessories, James Varnish (to name a few) and hence our blog is feeling a little neglected. Then next, I’ll be jet setting to New York (yes NYC!) for fashion week to shoot their street style and represent a few Aussie designers and media outlets to capture the experience and street style images. If you want to follow my journey, just click on over to Instagram and find me @heykarenwoo.

Ok, with that out of the way, I want to introduce to you a very loving and sweet couple – Elise and Tom. They are two special friends in our lives whom we had the pleasure of knowing from the time we attended church together and played in a worship band with these two. So it was HUGE when these two asked me to be their official wedding photographer.

Here are the highlights of their gorgeous engagement session x
