This is your moment!
You have the dress….
and most importantly, the ring….
Why wait until the wedding day to see how they all come together?
Scheduling a bridal session with your photographer gives you the chance to see exactly how you’ll look and allows you the opportunity to make desired changes prior to the big day. Bridal sessions are a perfect time to do a trial run with your hair & makeup artist, get a mock bouquet design from your florist, and to test out the alterations from your seamstress to make sure that everything is just right. A bridal session is also the perfect time for me, your photographer, to learn which poses are most comfortable for you and which flatter you the most, instead of trying to figure this out during your strict schedule on the wildly emotional wedding day.
Engagement sessions are great for the couple to get to know me by working with me in advance, but at a bridal session, it gives the bride another opportunity to grow that relationship. You’ll be able to relax and explore how to become comfortable in front of the camera and how to interact with me to get beautiful, authentic pictures filled with excitement and emotion in a stress-free environment.
Bridal sessions are perfect for those fashion-inspired editorials that are ripe with character and drama.
And there’s no rule that says your bridal session needs to be at the same venue as your wedding. It doesn’t even need to fit within the same theme. You’ll get hundreds of pictures at your wedding venue on the wedding day, so why not take the opportunity to explore a different location, style or season? You’ve invested a lot in your dress and should have pictures that showcase it and you in various locations.
Bridal sessions are meant for exploring your creative side. Don’t limit yourself to just posing with your dress and bouquet of flowers. Incorporate props such as antique cars, unique backdrops, large accessory pieces, furniture or even animals. There are so many ways we can approach this and we’re always working with our brides on something that they will find exciting!
I absolutely love bridal sessions! In fact, some of my favorite images of all time have been created during bridal sessions. I wish I had the opportunity to do them for all of my brides!
A PICTURE IS WORTH A THOUSAND WORDS
Although I am far from traditional, there is something to be said about displaying a big beautiful portrait of yourself in your wedding dress. If you opt to display one on your wedding day, a bridal session is necessary in order to do so. You can also give a framed picture of you in your gown to your parents or grandparents on the day of the wedding as a thank you. It’s a gift and moment they’ll want to remember long after the wedding day.
It is recommended that you book your bridal session a few months prior to the wedding day in your full wedding attire, complete with hair, makeup, bouquet, veil, and of course the dress. Bridal sessions are normally scheduled Monday thru Thursday only.
