Are you curious as to what a bridal session actually is? Keep reading below to learn what it is and why you should consider investing in having one!
A bridal session is a portrait session for the future bride. My bridal sessions are currently an hour session with the bride-to-be dressed completely in her wedding attire. This is the perfect opportunity for you to have extra photos of yourself in the gown that you have invested hundreds to thousands of dollars on.
I encourage brides to have their hair & makeup professionally done for their bridal sessions as well as having a mock bouquet made. The bridal session allows you to see exactly how you will look on your wedding day. I have had brides to make changes to their hair & makeup for the wedding day because they were not 100% satisfied with how their hair & makeup looked during the bridal session. This is the perfect opportunity for you to see how you will look on the actual wedding day and determine IF you would like to make any changes to your appearance.
Another reason why I love a bridal session is because it allows you to have the opportunity to have so many extra poses in your gown that you may not have time for on the typical wedding day. Finally, I have had brides to use a large (16×20 or larger) sized image from the bridal session in their reception!!

- The bridal session is for the bride only. Unless you would like for your groom to see you in your attire BEFORE the actual wedding day, do NOT bring him to the session.Get your hair & makeup professionally done by the person who will do it for you on the wedding day.
- Do not forget to have a bouquet made for your bridal session.
- Bring someone to your session to help you get in and out of your wedding gown.
- Schedule your session at least 30 days before your wedding so that you will have adequate time to order professional prints.
