I LOVE day after sessions! While the term may be confusing, it is a session for the bride and groom any time after the wedding day (even a few years later if wanted!). Chris and I decided to a day after session after our wedding, and it was such a great decision! On our wedding day, things ran late so we we weren’t able to get very many shots of just the two of us, so a session not only gave me a chance to wear my dress again (and do my hair and makeup a different way!) but give me some of my favorite images ever!
Day after sessions are so great! There are many reasons why I love them! 1. A wedding day can be stressful, tight on time or full of bad weather. A day after session allows the couple to have more images of the two of them without time constraints, and another chance in case it rained or they didn’t get all the images they wanted. 2. On the wedding day a bride always has to be careful of her dress, but during a day after session, there is no need to worry about her dress getting dirty, so there are so many more exciting things that we can do! 3. On the wedding day you are pretty limited as far as locations go, but for a day after session, we can explore and use so many other options!
So because I love day after sessions, and feel that they are so important, I want to do a little giveaway!
I want to give one fully styled day after session to a couple! This will include props, bouquet, etc. I want it to be wonderful! I have some incredible ideas planned! All you need to do is comment below with why you want to win!
The session will take place sometime this summer – based on my schedule and the couple’s schedule.
I don’t get to shoot maternity sessions that often, so when I do, I am always excited for such a wonderful opportunity! When I am shooting a maternity session, there is so much joy and excitement there – the anticipation of getting to meet their baby! Ben and Karen were in Charleston last month for their babymoon and it just happened to be the same time that Chris and I were there for a little trip too! I am so excited that they choose me to capture such a wonderful time and I am thrilled that we were able to shoot in Charleston – one of my favorite cities! Karen is an awesome photographer in Richmond, and I am so glad that we got to work together! Check out this wonderful and gorgeous couple below!
