What is a Bridal Session? Great Question! A bridal session can be as whimsical or down to earth as you would like and that is because this session is held either before or after your actual wedding. During your wedding consultation I always go over my different sessions I provide that are not included with the wedding day itself, engagement session, boudoir session, trash the dress and of course the bridal session. Every time i mention the bridal session there is either a quick response or a slight pause and a look of confusion. Here is my explanation of what a bridal session is to me personally. I believe a bridal session is a time for the bride to get her hair and makeup perfected during the trial run and since that is done why not throw on the gown and enjoy yourself in YOUR DREAM GOWN! Also, did you know a bridal session is apart of the wedding tradition? It is actually a fairly old southern tradition that began in Europe. The bride books a session for solely herself before her wedding day and the images are kept a secret until her wedding day when she displays a large print at the reception.
Why request a Bridal Session? This is defiantly up to you, although I love to push these sessions because I LOVE them for one and for two they are perfect for you, the bride! Why? You will have your wedding day look complete, you will get to see yourself ready for the first time, so if there is anything you would like changed, those changes can be made in advance and no the day of. These sessions are also great to help you loosen up! I will help you pose, or not pose (because those are great shots too) and show you different ways to look, stand and move that ill make your images look ten times better! If your decided not to get an engagement session captured by yours truly, this will also be a great time for you to get some one-on-one time with me to see how crazy and awkward I am. Its all good fun! In my opinion these portraits are actually the best because these portraits are STRESS-FREE! Yes, you heard me right, I will make sure these are the least stressful portraits you have ever had captured of you! Its me, you and maybe a momma or some besties so if there is a cool pose you want, say it, if there is an angle you hate, don't do it. You also aren't being rushed by a wedding day timeline, YASS LAWD!!! So, why not?
