From the Photographer: I am blessed to work with brides on one of the happiest days of their lives. When a close friend of mine got engaged last year, I was so excited to help her find the perfect gown — an important moment in every woman’s life! My friend is a size 14, and what was supposed to be an joyous occasion turned sour when most of the bridal boutiques, blogs, and websites we visited were focused on more slender brides. A year later, my daily commute took me past Your Big Day Bridal Salon — a boutique featuring gowns and accessories for ladies of all sizes! I quickly contacted Merrie, the owner of Your Big Day , to talk about partnering with her to create a look-book featuring brides sized 12 and up. All women deserve to enjoy the experience of shopping for their wedding, and I am so glad to be able to help fill a void left by the lack of options and inspiration for curvy, real women.
