I love capturing the wildly in love. On the left is a quick glimpse of some of my work. Like what you see?
The Tradition of the Bridal Portrait Session
A bridal portrait session is a fairly old and specifically Southern tradition that began in Europe. The bride schedules a portrait session focusing solely on herself which takes place well before the wedding day. She is photographed dressed in her wedding dress and She might also have her hair and makeup done by the same person she is planning on using for her wedding day. The resulting bridal photos are kept secret, and in many cases a large print from the session is later displayed at the wedding reception.
Why Should I Schedule A Bridal Portrait Session?
Deciding whether or not you want to have your “bridals” done (that’s industry speak) is purely a matter of personal choice! But I do think it’s important to learn about the reasons why a bridal session can be very beneficial. Then, you can decide for yourself whether it makes sense for you! So, what are some great reasons as to why you should schedule a bridal portrait session?
By now you should have a better understanding of just what is a bridal session as well as some reasons why you might choose to have them done. Or, maybe you’re a little less confused about this old Southern tradition – if that’s the case, great! Either way, bridal portraits are just another way to capture memories of an absolutely beautiful season of life, so have fun and enjoy yourself!
