I had a lace dress. Honestly, I agree that it doesn’t photograph as nice as it looks in person. You do end up losing alot of the detail in photos. However, I still love the way it photographed and everyone got to see all the amazing detail in person. I don’t regret my decision at all to wear lace even after seeing my photos.

Feel free to browse my photos if you want to see how it photographed:

Depending on how far away the shots are, you may or may not be able to see the detail.  But I think even from far away the fabric shows some depth to it, so it looks more “alive” than plain flat fabric.  It also depends on the lighting.

In this close up you can see the lace detailing pretty well:

Some of the detail is definitely lost in photos as they get further away, but it is always visible in real life, which is far more important!

i’d say it photographs pretty well 🙂
