I LOVE bridal portrait sessions! I’m sure some of you are wondering what a bridal portrait session even is – so let me take a moment to explain! A bridal session is when we do additional pictures of just the bride before the wedding day. I know that sounds a little crazy – but let me tell you why I love and think its a great idea for every bride!
- It allows you more opportunities to wear your wedding dress! You have been searching for the perfect dress for a LONG time – and its so sad that you only get to wear it once! This not only allows you to wear it twice but to get more images in it! Which leads me to number two!
- You get MORE images of you as a bride in your dress! On a wedding day I always shoot bridal portraits – but we don’t have unlimited time due to the nature of a wedding day – but with a bridal session – we have a whole hour and a half! We can even go to multiple locations or plan the session around sunrise or sunset. It also allows you extra time to feel comfortable with how your dress moves, and to “test out” any special parts of the dress. This is also the perfect time for you to have your makeup and hair trial!
- It allows you to see how you feel and if you want to make any changes! If you decide you don’t like that hairpiece or the belt – it gives you time to feel out those things – and to make any alterations before your wedding day! Also, if you want to shoot at a venue that was maybe booked on your wedding day – or wasn’t a convenient location for your wedding (like a destination bridal session!) – then we have a ton of freedom to explore those options! :)
I was thrilled to be able to do a bridal session for Meagan! And let me tell you – she is stunning! Her gown is so gorgeous and she is a natural in front of the camera! Here are just a few of my favorites from her session! :)
