It’s no secret that I love when my brides-to-be schedule a bridal portrait session with me. It’s a fantastic way to test run your hair and makeup, see how your dress fits and feels, and get comfortable in front of the camera before your big day. And what better place to get all dolled up than the stunning North Carolina Arboretum? Today I’ll be sharing Rachel’s winter bridal portraits with you! She was an absolute beauty.
The Perfect Setting for Winter Bridal Portraits
The North Carolina Arboretum, located in Asheville, has acres of gardens, nature trails, and stunning architecture. I find it to be the perfect backdrop for any photoshoot. It certainly provides the perfect setting for bridal portraits! During a bridal portrait session, the bride has the chance to try out her dress and accessories, see how they feel and fit, and make any necessary adjustments before the wedding day. She can also experiment with different hairstyles and makeup looks, ensuring that everything is perfect for the big day.
Having a bridal session means that you have additional photos to display at your wedding. Your planner or venue coordinator will keep them under lock and key until after your ceremony, of course. However, after that, they are a beautiful addition to your wedding day decor! Afterwards, these photos can be given to your family as a gift, and even displayed in your home for years to come. What a sweet sentiment to cherish for a lifetime!
A bridal portrait is an experience that every bride should consider. It’s an unforgettable experience that only gets you more excited about your upcoming wedding day! If you’d like to see the other end of the seasonal spectrum, here is a summer portrait session. If you’re interested in winter bridal portraits, or portraits any time of year, I’d love to connect with you!
