What Is a Flatlay?

A flat lay is a collection of objects that have been intentionally arranged to create a styled and editorialized photograph to commemorate your wedding day.

It can be arranged on any flat surface such as the floor, a table, or a decorative styling board.

It is basically a snapshot of your wedding and summarizes the story of your special day by capturing and showcasing everything from your color palette to the theme you’ve chosen.


Key Points

  • Ask your photographer if they are planning to do a flat lay and even go so far as to ask for a list of items that you could include in your flat lay.
  • Many wedding photographers already have their own flat lay styling kits but will need some of your personal items to make it one-of-a-kind.
