Your wedding day is approaching, and you want to ensure that every aspect of your look is flawless. Bridal portraits offer a wonderful opportunity to not only test your hair and makeup choices but also capture stunning images that showcase your beauty and unique bridal look. Here are some tips for getting the most out of your bridal portrait session!
A Complete Trial Run: When it comes to your bridal portrait session, I believe in going beyond the mirror. A hair and makeup trial can provide valuable insights, but seeing how your look holds up in the elements and how it translates through the lens is invaluable. That’s why I recommend a full trial run, including hair, nails, makeup, and even your bouquet.
Choosing the Perfect Location: Selecting the right location sets the stage for your bridal portraits. I recommend choosing well-manicured, clean, and versatile locations that offer a balance of indoor and outdoor options. Wedding venues, particularly historic homes and resorts with picturesque grounds, often provide ideal settings. It’s important we have a venue that allows us to keep your dress clean, while also providing a stunning backdrop!
Timing is Everything: The time of year can significantly impact the comfort and atmosphere of your bridal portrait session. To avoid extreme temperatures, I highly recommend scheduling your session during the Spring or Fall. Our goal is to create images using natural light to really showcase your bridal look!
Working with Venues: Most venues have specific guidelines and fees associated with portrait sessions. While it may seem inconvenient, the benefits of utilizing their facilities often outweigh the cost. I will coordinate closely with the venue to find the best time for your session.
Remember the Details: To truly capture the essence of your bridal look, don’t forget to bring along your details. Be sure to have your jewelry, veil, and shoes ready for the portrait session. These details add depth and personalization to your photographs.
