Summer Bridal Portraits in Asheville | Meredith

POSTED ON

March 18, 2022

I just love when a bride adds a bridal session to her wedding photography collection! This gorgeous location was on a farm at Meredith’s family friends home not far from Meredith’s wedding venue. Her summer bridal portraits are stunning! I’m so excited to share them on the blog with you, along with a few reasons I recommend taking bridal portraits!

Here are a few reasons I recommend taking bridal portraits.

A test run for the wedding day

This is the perfect opportunity to try on your full wedding attire to make sure everything fits well. You will get to see yourself all dressed up with your hair, makeup, dress, and accessories before the big day to make sure it’s perfect. Bridals are normally taken about 1-2 months before your wedding day, so this gives you some time for any last minute alterations or additions to make your dress comfortable.

Trial for your hair and makeup

Your bridal portrait session day is the perfect time to schedule your hair and makeup trial! You should always do a hair and makeup trial before your wedding day to test out your look and make sure it’s the way you want it for all your photos. If you’re deciding on a hairstyle still, this is a great opportunity to test that out with your full wedding attire!

More time for portraits than your wedding day

On your wedding day, you will have a full schedule. Without a bridal portrait session, we only have the option to set aside a few minutes for a few bridal portraits. You won’t have the time or variety that a bridal portrait session allows. With a full bridal portrait session, we choose the day, have flexibility with the weather, and get a full hour to get lots of variety and stress free time to get those beautiful portraits you want!

Location options

With a bridal portrait session you have the flexibility to take these portraits wherever you’d like! Meredith’s bridals were taken on a private family farm near her wedding venue. The farm had beautiful fields, tall grass, and mountain views.

Meet Kathy

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.
