Bridal Portraits have been around for many, many years but when did this tradition start? Bridal portraits originated in Europe and were typically only for royalty or wealthy families! These portraits were then displayed in the family home for future generations to admire.
Since WWII, the development of cameras have greatly improved. Bridal portraits have since grown in popularity to what we know of them today. Some might think doing a portrait session is an added wedding day stress, but with these tips it does not have to be. We have come up with four reasons why you should think about adding a bridal session to your list!
This dress will be very special and possibly the most expensive gown you will ever wear, so why not get to enjoy it twice!? It can also give you a trial run of your hair and makeup.
With bridal portraits you are able to go anywhere since they are not being done on your big day! Being in a new location can make them even more personal to you. Why not add your furry friend in as well!
Of course your photographer will take portraits of you on your wedding day. But taking the majority of them before allows more time for couple photos and candids! This will give you more time to enjoy dancing and making memories with your loved ones.
A bonus of doing bridal portraits, is the preview you get of what your big day will look like! It allows you to work with your photographer on things you like and dislike. This way if the hairstyle you always imagined is not working, you are able to change it!
