During the past ten years of wedding photography, I met and shot so many brides and pretty wedding shoes! And even if I hadn’t been a bride – actually I was a groom a few years ago! – I know how much girls want to be perfect on their wedding day; when all eyes of their friends and families will be on them.
This is not the first time that I deal with bridal shoes. I’ve already explained here why heels – or fancy footwear – is a must to make every bride feel pretty and chic at the same time. I’m not an expert, but I’m a lover: so please forgive me if I get over-the-top here, but that’s what I’d love to work with – more than wedding photography BTW! 🤫
Today I want to list who are best designers of wedding shoes – in my opinion. Some of them are not very well-known, but I’m sure you will appreciate their works! Please note I’m not listing the cheapest brands, so if you’re emptying your pockets to be a fashion Cinderella, blaming me won’t make you feel better! 😢
