The girl with the lace umbrella

Hello dears, for months now I've been thinking real hard about getting a lace umbrella for my prewedding shots. So after some quick searching online, I managed to find one that fits! And of course I couldn't resist taking some pics with it when it arrived. I know it's a bit of a cliche using a lace umbrella for wedding pics but I don't care because I think it looks really romantic and sweet. Do you have any ideas for props that you think would look great for the shoot? I do have a long list of ideas, hopefully I'll manage to find everything in time for the shoot.

Oh yes, my boy is finally home and I'm now the happiest girl on the planet

What a beautiful item! Ahh it's so pretty. Sadly I require something more robust/waterproof in this part of the world! It'll look great on your pre wedding pics! :) x

mica said...

lovely lace umbrella!! u bought it online? how much was it? i haven really given prewedding photoshoots much of a thought, but i'd love to include some cute mini bears for sure (cos my nickname for bf is "honey bear")! i think it mite be alittle childish for a photoshoot, but it's something that is close to our hearts =) also, i'd very much love to take a set of photos with the sunset scene in the background. i love the romantic 'feel'...or maybe take a set of photos @ places where the bf n myself share really great memories =)

so happy for u that ur boy's finally by ur side! hows ur future mother-in-law like? haha, i guess that's the qn that kinda pops into almost every (Asian?) gurl's head.

lovely dress u've got and that ring really matches ur belt! =) that new fluffy pillow will seriously be EVERYWHERE! i've been hugging it, placing it on the table, on the bed... hehe, it follows me wherever i go!

love, mica

Are you going to get wed???? congrats to the couple!!!!!!! the lace umbrella is a really great idea! ;D

un petit lapin said...

Oh I've always wanted a lace parasol!

Hmm.. I suppose props for photos would depend on whether you wanted a specific theme or just general accessories. What about picnic basket/blanket, violin and other musical instruments, balloons, vintage suitcases... er that's all I can think of right now!

Its not a cliche idea at all! Especially since yours is so dainty and vintage looking. I absolutely hate the ones that look plastic-y and so 1980's. Ps-your shoes are freaking awesome!!!
