Tye Your Straps While Sitting Upright

Yes, we’ve all seen the photo of the bride buckling or tying her straps. Normally, you see the shoes, her knees and the top of her head as she looks down to tie.

What makes this pose and photo shine is that rather than leaning forward and downward, the bride has lifted her leg and sits upright. Sitting straight up will better show off your dress, and face and give you an overall taller, lengthier look.

Use Ladders, Staircases & Levels

Hadn’t imagined an old artist’s ladder as part of your wedding supplies? Believe us, your shoe photos will gain a major upgrade. Ladders, steps and even propping yourself up on a counter or bookcase allow your legs to hang long and really show off those heels. Propping your foot on something higher can put your foot in better light, and give your photographer a better composition. Drape your dress to the side for added appeal.

Pro tip: No matter the pose, always remember to point your toes for extra length!

Hold Your Bridal Shoes

Rather not show off your feet for photos? It’s actually quite cute to pose with your wedding shoes in hand. Daintily hold your heels by the straps off to the side. That way, you can show off your heels and your dress at the same time. Or, your comfy bridal flat in both hands in front of your gown for a classic wedding photo.

Best Bridal Shoe Poses While Standing

  1. Standing straight on, turn one knee in and point that toe. This gives you a longer leg and sexy curves.
  2. The Model Walk: Pretend you’re walking the runway. Take long steps with each leg stepping directly in the front of you, in the middle. Your legs will look long and your shoes, the focal point.
  3. Once you’ve put your heels on, you can make it look like you’ve put them on while standing. Lift your leg closest to the camera and grab your heel as though you’re adjusting them a bit. It’s a very composed and artistic version of the “putting on your shoes” photo.

Bridal Shoe Flat Lays

For a fine art, editorial look, have your photographer or planner set up a bridal shoe flat lay. Simply shoot your bridal shoes on a textured background in pretty light. Or, you can add your florals, stationery, jewels and any other wedding details to add pretty context to your wedding gallery and album.

Bella Belle Shoes’ Best Tips

  1. For that healthy glow captured in your images, be sure to keep your legs and feet clean and moisturized. Put on your lotion right after you towel dry. Apply some baby oil to create glowing skin.
  2. Show off your manicure if your shoes are open toe. No chipped nails on your most important day.
  3. Practice walking in your shoes around your home before the big day so you look effortless in your poses and throughout the day.
  4. Ensure the shoes fit well. Too small and your feet will look squished in the pictures, especially as our feet expand throughout the day. Just right or a little bit too big is advisable to accommodate our feet as they expand. The right fit is important so you look and feel amazing in your images throughout the day.
  5. Double tie the knots if your shoes comes have knots for extra stability. Only when you are comfortable in your shoes that you will radiate amazingness from within, which will show clearly on your poses.
