We always photograph the bride by herself on the wedding day. However, many brides want to do a bridal session anywhere from two weeks to six months before the wedding. This makes it possible to have a beautiful portrait of the bride on display at the wedding reception. This portrait will become a permanent piece of art in the home of the bride or her parents.
We love bridal sessions. It also gives the bride a chance to stand in her dress for a good amount of time and see if there are any final alterations that need to be done to the dress.
Location – you pick it. We have done them in churches, in living rooms, in back yards, in parks, and in places that are special to the bride. Here are some examples from a Little Rock bride. We photographed at the state Capitol and then moved to North Little Rock where we could get the Little Rock skyline in the background as the sun set.
Then as this cold night got colder she stayed so we could capture her as the moon rose over her shoulder. The moon was actually this size as we photographed her from a long distance. The image is actually two quick photos put together – one focused on her and the other focused on the moon. We did not increase the size of the moon by zooming the camera. My thanks to Amanda for the wonderful bridal portrait session.
You can see more photographs from this bridal session.
And one final image on this post is a bridal portrait we took at Crowley’s Ridge State Park with another bride. Bridal portraits can be printed on regular photographic paper; on metallic photographic paper; or on canvas in a fine art gallery wrap. We also have a digital package available where you can buy all of the photographs from the bridal session in high-resolution. Remember, if we photograph your wedding you get all of the images from the wedding day in high-resolution files that you can use anyway you want. Plus with our wedding photography you also get two large wall prints on photographic paper.
