We get to photograph so many beautiful gowns and over the years I have had my favorites for sure ! Some just photograph better than others, and some are just so memorable ! So here are 9 of our favorite wedding gown designers and where you can find them in the Seattle area.

Berta PrivΓ©e

Where to try on and buy these wedding gowns – Idina at u-Village

If I had a crush on a bridal designer, it would be Berta ! Every piece is a work of art ! You literally wouldn’t need any other decor at your wedding πŸ™‚ Seattle bride’s, do yourself a favor and at least try one on ! Then email me right away about being your wedding photographer πŸ™‚

Willoby by waters – persephone

This one you can order online through Anthropology (but they have a great return policy and there is a store in U-Village you can return to)


Where to buy – You can get this one online, and they have a 14 day return policy.

This dress would be great for a garden wedding or even a rehearsal dinner the day before !

Willoby by Waters – Cecilia 50109

Where to buy : A&Be Bridal in Seattle

I actually had the pleasure of shooting this dress a few weeks ago as one of my brides wore it to her Chihuly Glass Museum Wedding. Here she is below πŸ™‚ Flowers by Elle Fleurit Floral Co.

Ultra feminine and romantic with a bit of a Bridgerton vibe !

Rue-Deseine – Starting at

Where to buy in Seattle – The Dress Theory

This is for the bohemian, rock and roll type bride who throws tradition out the window ! I love this designer for their unique look and playful vibe. Perfect for a desert or beach wedding.

I had the pleasure of shooting a Rue-Deseine gown in Palm Springs a couple years ago (see below)

Liz Martinez

Where to buy in Seattle – Idina Bride

The most delicate and intricate wedding gowns I have seen, the light just flows through them and makes them a dream to photograph ! I have had the pleasure of photographing them a few times. Here are some favorites.

Here is a Liz Martinez gown I got to photograph in San Diego a couple years ago

Monique Lullhier

Where to try on and buy these wedding gowns in Seattle – I Do Bridal

Their Spring 2024 collection (photographed by the amazing Elizabeth Messina) is just so feminine and perfect for a Garden or historic mansion type wedding. Think Thornewood Castle or Christinsons Nursery (see my post on our favorite venues for more ideas )

Galia Lahav

Where to buy in Seattle – Nyanza Bridal

For that Luxe bride we love Galia Lahav ! Many of our brides wear this designer and I can spot it before they even tell me who they are wearing. Her wedding gowns just have this certain look you can spot it from a mile away.

Here are some weddings of ours where brides wore Galia Lahav –

Julia & Sassa’s Wedding

Melanie & Tysons Wedding

Chelsea & Jordans Wedding
