Fun Bridal Portrait Session | Asheville Wedding Photographer

POSTED ON

January 14, 2019

You might be wondering what a Bridal Portrait Session entails?

A bridal session is commonly a southern tradition and can be a beautiful way to take portraits of you in your dress before your wedding day.

You are able to do a dry run per say of your dress, shoes and all of your accessories before the big day. Ensuring that it all comes together as you have envisioned. It gives you the opportunity to spend time together with your photographer so that you are even more comfortable in front of the camera on your wedding day. Also becoming more comfortable in your dress as you will have had an opportunity to practice being photographed in it.

More importantly, it gives you more time than you would have on your wedding day to capture even more gorgeous portraits and memories that will last a lifetime. This often is a great time to get creative and use a location that is different than your wedding venue. One that you may not have time to photograph on your actual wedding day. Choosing a location that means something special to your love story or a place that has spoken to you personally at some point in your life brings an added level of authenticity and significance to your wedding photo collection.

You could do something fun, different or nontraditional for your bridal photos. Or keep it simple and classic. The sky is the limit for your bridal portrait session inspiration!

Here are some fun bridal portraits I took from a recent styled shoot!

From styled shoot feature…

“If you’re thinking of getting a little (& some much needed) me time just before the big day begins, today’s inspiration is just for you. Bridal shoots have grown in popularity over recent years, and brides to be are always looking for new ways to celebrate the last moments before becoming a MRS! Today’s shoot is for brides who want a less traditional bridal shoot, something that captures her pure joy and excitement.”

I’m Kathy – wedding photographer, mom of 1 daughter & 2 doodles, and avid sunset watcher. Once you’ve gotten to know a little more about me, it’ll be my turn to get to know you as too!! When I work with a couple, we usually end up feeling more like old friends by the time your wedding day arrives – which means a more relaxed, enjoyable wedding day experience for everyone. And when it comes to photo style, you’ll find your photos are vibrant and classic, in true-to-life color and timeless black and white. It’s my honor to serve joyful, authentic couples who want their wedding photos to be as timeless as their vows.
