This dress is absolutely gorogeus, and so are you!Can I give you a tiny piece of photography advice, though? I've noticed you are under-lit in a lot of your photos. It's easy to correct. Whenever you pose for a photo, take a second to note where the brightest light is coming from, and turn your body toward the source. THEN position your photographer. I know it seems obvious, but you'd be surprised at the number of people who unconsciously do the exact opposite (because standing with your back to the brightest light means that whatever you're looking at is easier to see).This will make your photos clearer and sharper, and highlight the beauty of your creations!
