Being a photographer in Southern California I have always been insanely jealous of the popularity of bridal sessions in the South! I just love the idea of the bride having her own portraits before the wedding day. It’s the perfect opportunity to do all your wedding trials and be able to see how it will all look in photos. That way there won’t be any surprises on your wedding day! Another use for this type of session is to get all your details photographed. Details always get photographed on the wedding day, but I have had so many couples that forget to bring their invitation suite to the venue or forget to give me all their details in the hustle and bustle of the day. A shoot like this would give a more laid back opportunity to make sure you get all those pictures that you love!
