Bridal Session

July 20, 2018

- What is a bridal session?  It’s a photo session centered around the bride in her wedding dress that takes place prior to the wedding day.

 

- When should I do bridal photos?  I recommend scheduling your bridal session with me as far in advance as possible.  The actual session should take place at least 6 weeks before your wedding date to allow enough processing time in case you want to display an image or two from the bridal session on your wedding day.

 

- Where should I have my photos taken?  I can suggest many locations around town, or maybe you have a favorite spot in mind.  Some locations are free; others charge a fee.  I’d be happy to discuss location options with you in more detail as the time nears. Another idea is to have the Bridal Session at your wedding venue.

 

- Should I bring someone with me to help out?  Absolutely, extra help is always appreciated.

 

- What should I bring?  Yourself, your smile, your shoes and your wedding dress.  Many brides also bring along a bouquet similar to the style they plan to have on their wedding day.  I also recommend bringing along a white sheet to lay on the ground to protect your dress in case of dust or mud.

 

- How long does the session last?  About 2 hours.

 

- What about hair and makeup?  Many makeup artists and stylists offer a trial run for wedding day hair and makeup.  If you can coordinate these trial runs to coincide with your bridal session, that usually works best.

 

- How long after the bridal session before I see my photos?  Turnaround is approximately 2-3 weeks.

 

- How many photos will there be?  I edit and polish the best.  Most bridal sessions end up with somewhere between 20 – 40 finished photos.

 

- I’m on the fence about doing a bridal . . . what are the advantages?  This is a matter of personal preference.  Many clients have told me that they were really glad they did the bridal session.  It’s a nice trial run at walking around in your dress; and through the process, some of my brides have discovered that they needed to adjust something – whether an alteration to the fit of the dress or a tweaking of the hair, makeup, or bouquet.  We’ll have an opportunity to take photos of you by yourself in your dress on your wedding day, but it won’t be in such a leisurely and extended fashion. It will also save you time on the day of your wedding. If you want photos of you by yourself in your wedding dress then you would be better getting them before, so you can relax and enjoy your day!
