Bridal Portraits of Jessica by Lifework Images, Tacoma-Seattle

BRIDAL PORTAIT SESSIONSBy LaRae & Cory Lobdell of Lifework ImagesA pre-wedding happening that is still a tradition in the South and on the East coast is the formal Bridal Portrait session done 2-3 months before the wedding. At the wedding, a large portrait of the bride from the session is displayed for everyone to see. The Bridal Portrait session doesn't have to be formal if you don't want it to be. It can be a fun session of you in your dress, and can be a fun time for really cool, stylized shots that you might not have time for the day of your wedding.
Here are a few images from Jessica's bridal portrait session that were taken at two different locations in the Tacoma-Seattle area: Kensington Gardens in Gig Harbor and Tacoma Union Station.
