It is #WeddingWednesday, so here is a beautiful bridal portrait of Mallory, one of my June brides. Photos where you can’t see the eyes are just so mysterious to me, love this one!
Traditionally, especially in the south, bridal portraits are actually done in a separate pre-wedding a month or two before your wedding. You would have professional hair and make-up artists for the session, typically using trial runs which are included with the wedding package. Wedding timelines always run behind, portrait times always get cut, so doing bridal portraits on a separate day is a great way to ensure you get a nice variety of portraits of yourself looking the best you have ever looked in an amazing dress. Besides, why buy a dress to only wear it once? You obviously will need to keep your bridal photos hidden carefully, if your groom will be seeing your dress for the first time at their wedding ceremony. But is it so worth it to have some nice pictures to display at the reception or to give to your parents or even your groom as a thank you on the day of the wedding.
