A bridal portrait is a formal picture of the bride in her wedding dress. Here are some advantages and disadvantages of having a bridal session done.
If you want to have a bridal portrait to showcase at your reception then we will need to do a bridal session at least 4 weeks prior to your wedding. This will give us time to edit the session and get your portrait printed and framed. A bridal session is also a great opportunity to have a trial run of your hair and makeup. It will allow you to see your complete wedding look and gives us a chance to get a great portrait of just you without an impatient groom or a family member rushing you. A bridal portrait also makes a great gift for the bride to give to her parents. However, what most people don't realize is that we do photograph pictures of just the bride on her wedding day. So if you don't want a portrait of yourself at the reception then you could use that money towards something else in your wedding budget.
Below are some bridal pictures of a few of our beautiful brides. :)
