Jennifer stunned us with her bridal session! She and her husband, Chris, met at a young adult conference where they were both invited to speak. A couple of months later, Jennifer was hosting her own event and invited Chris. Over the next couple of months, the two formed a friendship that turned into love! Even though they’d been in the same social circles their entire lives, they did not meet until that day at the conference!
Now they are happily married and looking forward to a beautiful life together! Jennifer decided to have her bridal portraits taken ahead of time instead of on her wedding day. Newlyweds often take some time after the ceremony to take photos with the wedding party, family, and friends. However, you may want to consider taking your bridal portrait photos ahead of time for the reasons listed below!
Having a separate bridal session gives you the chance to focus on only your bridal photos. When you’re taking bridal photos at the wedding, you might feel pressured to move quickly. If you’re trying to stick to the timeline, you might not be focused on your poses. Schedule ahead of time, then slow down and take your time with your bridal portraits!
Your wedding might be in the late afternoon, but the morning might be the perfect time to capture the details of your dress. Having a separate session is a great way to get the lighting you want for your bridal photos if it’s going to be different on the actual wedding day.
The light might not be the only thing that’s different on wedding day. Scheduling ahead of time can help you get sunny outdoor photos if your wedding day ends up being cloudy or rainy. You also won’t have to worry about potentially getting soaked in the rain, getting the dress muddy, or having to come up with last-minute alternative poses or locations.
A pre-wedding session is like a dress rehearsal! Try on the full look before the ceremony and take notes! Does your dress need more alterations? Do you want to try a different makeup look? Is the jewelry a good fit for the dress? Now is your time to make any last-minute changes!
