Bridal Portraits Bride Looking at Camera Photo

Mostly a southern wedding tradition Bridal Portraits are an amazing addition to your wedding experience. We love bridal portrait sessions for many reasons. The number one reason would be the time we get to spend with our brides capturing gorgeous portraits. Today on the blog we are going to tell you all the benefits of adding a bridal session to your wedding photography experience.

Trial Run

First, trial runs are the best! Don’t leave it to chance what you will look and feel like on your wedding day. You can be confident of your look by doing a trial run. A hair and makeup trial run on your bridal portrait day will ensure you are happy with your look on your wedding day. Trying different pieces of jewelry to see what you like the most. You can also have your florist make a mock bouquet for your bridal portraits. This helps with making any adjustments for you to be completely satisfied with your flowers on the day of your wedding. And finally, you can make sure your gown fits you perfectly! 

Second, you save time on your wedding day. Because these portraits are done before your wedding day this frees up some time on your big day. Which can be useful for portraits with your spouse or more time with your guests. You can also display these portraits at your wedding if you’d like. 

Third, you can also have unique portraits in a location that might not be possible on your wedding day. Think of a place that is special to you. Doing bridal portraits can allow you to have photos in that special place. Whether you choose your wedding venue, a mountain top, or the beach there are many advantages to adding in a bridal portrait session!
