 High resolution cameras pick up colors extremely well so too much peachy or orange undertones will show.  When it comes to your dress you want to pick something that will make you feel amazing. If you want something that will photograph well tell your stylist. They should be able to tell you some of the things to look for in a dress that will photograph well.
