The Bridal Portrait: To Do, or Not To Do?

That is the question. Well, here are a few reasons in favor of To Do!

  1. It is a great way to get comfortable in front of the camera before the big day.
  2. You finally find THE dress only to wear it on one occasion? Well, a bridal portrait session will give you another chance to get dolled up and play dress up in your dream dress more than once.
  3. On the note of getting dolled up, a bridal portrait is also a good opportunity to do a trial run for your hair and make-up to make sure you find a style you like and that photographs well.
  4. Lastly, it is a great opportunity to have fun with your photographers before the big day!
