Growing up in the north Bridal portraits were not something that I knew anything about. Those of you in the South might think that it is strange to not know about them, but bridal portraits are just one more thing that I love about the South. For those of you that don’t know what they are, bridal portraits are photos of the bride taken before the wedding with her looking amazing in her dress, shoes, hair done and even her bouquet. Often one of the bridal portraits is displayed at the reception.
Every girl loves to look beautiful and a photo shoot all about the bride is an amazing way to do this. Bridal portraits are often a great way to incorporate something special or even a little funky that you might not include on your actual wedding day, such as props, jewelry and hairpieces. Of course I don’t put the bridal photos up on the blog until after your wedding day to make sure that the groom doesn’t get a sneek peek of your dress.
I had an amazing bridal session with an absolutly stunning bride this past weekend, and I can’t wait to share those images with you in a few weeks. Until then, here is a shot of her amazing ring from the session.
And here are a few favorites of past brides…aren’t they all such gorgeous girls…
