We had a stunning bridal portrait session at the historic Providence Cotton Mill earlier this past Summer, and I’m excited to finally share these! Casey (now Mrs. Christopher) made a most beautiful bride in her elegant Kitty Chen couture dress. One of my favorite parts of her bridal look was her long, dreamy, vintage veil. We took photos at the immaculate Providence Cotton Mill — a place I had wanted to shoot at for the entire year! Casey also sported her custom made blue jean jacket that a friend of hers created with her future last name embellished.
I believe there are several great benefits for why a bride should do a bridal session before the big day. On the wedding day, there is so much that takes place, and often times, it’s a wonderful whirlwind that goes by TOO fast! Having a separate bridal session all to herself gives the bride a chance to be more clear-minded in her beautiful dress all by herself. These sessions also give the bride a chance to work with their hair and makeup artists to be sure they get exactly what they want for the real day. Another amazing benefit to doing bridal photos is the fact that you get the opportunity to reach out to your florist early for a mock bouquet that will resemble exactly what you want for the actual wedding. Brides are prone to change their minds as there are so many beautiful styling options. For photography sake, doing a bridal session gives the bride more photos of just her in her dream dress at a location that she likes. So, future brides, if you’re debating having your bridal portraits made, I vote, do it!
