In My Bag ~ Styling Tips

Happy Thursday! Thought I'd start the day off with a new addition to the In My Bag series! This week I'm talking about what I carry with me to style detail shots. This is one of my favorite parts of the wedding day! Most of these styling tools are used for photographing the invitation suites and ring shots. 

I don't carry a ton of things with me, just a few simple necessities. My favorite things include ribbons, lace, pearls, and multi-colored glitter paper (because you can never have too much sparkle!). Of course you can use some other items that your bride's may have including perfume, jewelry, or even their dress as a background for your images!

I think it's a good idea to have a variety of colors for your styling tools so that you can be sure to match the shots with the wedding's theme. Neutral & pastel colors pretty much go with anything! I thought I'd have a little fun and show you some of my favorite ways to use these styling props. So why not share some pretty ring shots!?
