Let's talk about bridal sessions. They aren't that common place and I get it 1000%! It is an added expense to an already tight wedding budget. But let me tell you why I loveeee them and I always will:
- It is an opportunity for you and I to get to know one another and get comfortable working together and it will help put you at ease taking photos on your wedding day. Psh...after an hour playing model, you'll feel like an old pro workin that camera, girlllll!
- It is a chance to test your hair, makeup and bouquet before your wedding day. (I've had more than one client switch things up after having this test run).
- Your wedding dress is likely the most beautiful dress you will EVER wear and it will make you feel like a dang princess so I think that you should wear it more than once. And you should twirl. A lot.
- Your wedding day will be busy, busy, busy. A bridal session gives us tons of time to play around and get creative, giving you so many unique and romantic images.
These particular photos are from a styled shoot I just did with the floral genius behind Olive Grove Design. Due to a rainy forecast, the clouds were heavy and the wind was a-blowin. And I couldn't be more in love with the darker, moodier look that resulted! I want to send out a HUGE thank you to Olivia for making this happen and providing the beautiful bouquet and hair pins. And a special thanks to my all-time favorite model and bestest friend, Sara, for waking up at the crack of dawn on a Monday to get prettied up and come play with us.
