Best of 2017 Arkansas Wedding Photos | Bridal Portraits
Here’s another piece of the ‘Best of 2017 Arkansas Wedding Photos’ today – one of my NEW favorites – Bridal Portraits! I say it’s a new favorite, because before moving to Arkansas a few years ago, I had never even heard of a Bridal Portrait session, let alone shot one! But oh my goodness, has it become a really fun addition to my photo collection offerings. I must admit, I love it when brides choose to do bridal portraits. Don’t get me wrong, if you’re not into an ENTIRE session just about you and your gorgeous dress/hair/makeup/jewelry/veil/shoes/flowers…I totally get it. I don’t think I could do it myself – there’s a reason I’m behind the camera! Do not fret. I always make time to take a few bridal portraits of the beautiful bride on the wedding day as well (new blog post with more thoughts on that topic coming soon).
The tradition of Bridal Portraits is definitely a Southern tradition from what I’ve found. And as I said, it’s quickly become a favorite of mine. It is a session dedicated completely to YOU, the stunning, excited, beaming bride! Not only do we get to create some gorgeous images of you, but it’s also a perfect time for brides to do a ‘trial run’ of their look for their wedding day – hair/makeup, bouquet, and breaking in those brand new wedding shoes. It’s a calm, fun, and very relaxed session – one that I feel I am able to more fully capture your personality and joy without the stress of the big day. Not to mention it’s a great time to spend a you to spend time laughing and hanging out with mom and dear friends and make some wonderful memories in the process.
