The Mountain Setting of This Engagement Shoot Is Gorgeous, but the Bride's Red Dress Is the Real Showstopper
Whoever said, "You don't need to break the bank to look like a million bucks," was onto something, especially when it comes to the struggle to find affordable dresses to wear on and leading up to your big day. In this stunning styled engagement shoot, the bride brings the wow factor with an elegant red mermaid-cut gown with lace and beaded detailing — and you won't believe how accessible this scarlet showstopper is.
If you're wondering which high-end designer is behind this look, prepare to pick up your jaw from the floor, because this is actually a prom dress from Amazon that only costs around $100.
"Brides want to dress up, but they're already spending so much on their wedding that they can't justify buying a new gown," said photographer Amy Maddox, who styled the session. "But their engagements are a big deal, and they want to dress up and really make this a special occasion. And they should!"
Maddox loans tulle skirts and beaded gowns to couples she's photographing from a collection her studio keeps on hand, but this Amazon dress is so reasonably priced for the ultraglam vibe it will bring to your engagement pictures, it's worth it.
This engagement shoot took place at the Enchanted Rock State Natural Area in Fredericksburg, TX, and the rustic, rocky backdrop was a perfect contrast to the red gown and resulted in some truly breathtaking photos. See them all now!
