  • CAN I WEAR A BRA?
    Our flying dresses come in two different styles; transformer and ruffled. The transformer dresses means they can be adjusted accordingly to fit your shape and size. They can be styled in various ways but please note that due to their design a regular bra cannot be worn so we suggest going either braless, wear pasties, or a stick on or strapless bra. Whichever you feel most comfortable with. Please note that if part of your bra is visible we can only edit/photoshop that out with our advanced edit upgrade in images and in video/glamcam it is not possible to edit/photoshop it out. The ruffled dresses can be worn one shoulder or bardot style and a strapless bra can be worn. Please click here to see examples.
  • CAN MY PARTNER/BOYFRIEND/HUSBAND JOIN ME?
    Yes, absolutely! Your husband, boyfriend or partner is more than welcome to join you on your flying dress photoshoot. It's great to have someone there to cheer you on and give your confidence a boost during your photoshoot. If you would like to capture the romance and have a photoshoot that is dedicated to the both of you then we recommend selecting the "COUPLE PACKAGE".
  • IS HAIR AND MAKE UP INCLUDED?
    No, hair and make up is not included. Most ladies do their own hair because the wind in Aruba is extremely strong and hair styles tend not cooperate and can last a matter of minutes once you step out of the car depending on your hair type and style. The majority of photos are taken from a distance to capture the full effect of the dress "flying" so professional make up is not always necessary but of course you are welcome to hire a professional hair and make up artist if you wish to go the extra mile if this makes you feel more confident and you would like some close up shots as well as the shots taken from a distance. We are more than happy to recommend a local talented professional MUA on request, just let us know once you have booked your flying dress photoshoot.
  • HOW MUCH NOTICE IS REQUIRED TO BOOK A PHOTOSHOOT?
    We recommend booking at least 6-8 weeks in advance to ensure availability on your requested date due to high demand. We also recommend requesting a date at the start of your vacation just in case the weather or some other unforeseen reason prevents your photoshoot from taking place on your requested day, then we have time to reschedule before your vacation in Aruba ends. Please click here to book your flying dress photoshoot experience.
  • CAN I RENT THE DRESS ONLY?
    No, it is not possible to rent only the dress(es). All our flying dresses are available as part of our photoshoot packages with our team and not for individual rental.
  • WHAT SIZE IS THE FLYING DRESS?
    All our flying dresses are adjustable meaning they can fit perfectly any shape and size from XS to XXL. Please click here to see our full flying dress catalog.

  • WILL I RECEIVE THE RAW UNEDITED IMAGES?
    No. We do not give you the RAW unedited images to keep. We will take hundreds of pictures during your photoshoot, an image every split second to be able to capture the "perfect" shot, and then our team will narrow those down and send you the best of the best to preview in their RAW unedited low resolution format. For example we will not send you the kind of images that are unflattering, weird facial expressions, hair blowing in front of face etc. From this narrowed down preview list you can select your favorites that you would like our team to edit for you. The amount of edited pictures will depend on which package you choose when you booked your flying dress photoshoot but extras can be added for an additional fee.

  • WHERE WILL MY PHOTOSHOOT TAKE PLACE?
    We have a few location options for you to choose from; Arashi Beach, Bushiribana, Boca Gato, Rodgers Beach, Ayo Rock Formation, Grapefield, Westpunt and the Secret Beach. Our preferred photoshoot spots are less populated giving you more privacy for your photoshoot experience and less chance of people and crowds in the background of your shots. Click here to see all our photoshoot locations.
  • HOW DO I GET TO THE PHOTOSHOOT LOCATION?
    Most people rent a car during their vacation because the island is so small and it's easier to get around and explore that way. Or if you prefer you can get a taxi. We have a reliable female taxi driver that we can recommend and her details will be provided in the confirmation and reminder emails that you will receive after you have booked your flying dress photoshoot. Some people for example will book an early morning photoshoot at Rodgers Beach and then hop over to Baby Beach afterwards and spend a few hours there or explore San Nicolas and check out the colorful wall murals while down on that side of the island. Or hang out at Arashi Beach and have a drink and snack at the beach shack/bar. So pack your swimwear and a beach towel in case you want to go on an adventure after your photoshoot is over!
  • CAN YOU COME TO MY HOTEL/RESORT AND DO THE PHOTOSHOOT THERE?
    No, we do not offer our flying dress photoshoots at the hotels or resort areas. It's far too crowded, has no privacy for dressing/undressing, other guests/public taking pictures without consent etc plus the hotels do not always give permission to do photoshoots on their property. This is why we have carefully selected our photoshoot locations to represent the real Aruba plus provide privacy and a totally unique experience for our clients. You can check out the locations we offer, plus see sample images and maps so you can see how close they are to your hotel or Airbnb here:
  • WHERE WILL I DRESS/UNDRESS?
    As all our photoshoot locations are outdoors, there are no changing room facilities so you will change in to the flying dress outside at the location you selected at the time of booking, therefore we recommend wearing something loose that is easy to slip in and out of. We have specifically chosen locations that are quieter and more off the beaten path so they offer a little more privacy than the usual crowded tourist hot spots. Also we have a female dress assistant on hand to help you in and out of your flying dress before and after the photoshoot.
  • WHAT TIME WILL MY PHOTOSHOOT TAKE PLACE?
    Golden hour just before sunset is the best time of day for the lighting or early in the morning before the sun becomes too bright and harsh. The late afternoon time slot is best for Arashi Beach, Bushiribana, Boca Gato, Secret Beach and Mangel Halto locations. For Rodger's Beach, Ayo Rock Formation, Eagle Beach and Westpunt we recommend early morning for the best lighting.
  • HOW WILL THE WEATHER EFFECT MY PHOTOSHOOT?
    Aruba is well-known for it's cooling trade winds which can be both a help and a hindrance when shooting with a flying dress. This is why we always include a dress assistant for all our photoshoots to ensure your dress can "fly" (even if the wind does not cooperate) and we can create the dreamy iconic shots you know and love! If it's raining on the day of your photoshoot we are happy to reschedule for another day (according to our availability) without any additional cost. That’s why we always recommend booking your photoshoot at the beginning of your vacation. This way we will have more options to reschedule in case of bad weather.
  • WHAT IS YOUR RESCHEDULING/CANCELLATION POLICY?
    If you have to cancel your photoshoot because your travel plans have changed or any other reason please inform us via email quoting your booking reference number at least 48 hours notice before your photoshoot date for a full refund to be issued. Cancellations received after this time or no-shows will not receive a refund.
