Flat Lays, Tips and Tricks

A Symphony of Details: Flat Lay Check List

So you’re asking – what is a flat lay and why is it important?

A flat lay is a curated arrangement of wedding essentials that tells the story of your special day in a single frame. Among the many elements that contribute to the visual narrative of your special day, flat lay photography stands out as a timeless and essential art form.

Flat lay photography enhances the storytelling aspect of your wedding album and showcases details in a way that might be missed in the hustle and bustle of the day. It acts as a bridge between different parts of your day, providing a visual thread that ties together the various elements, from the bridal preparations to the ceremony and reception. It’s a chance to highlight the beauty of your rings, accessories, and any other sentimental items that hold significance. The cohesiveness of a well-crafted flat lay adds depth and continuity to your wedding narrative.
