There are a million things to worry about on your wedding day, First look/Bridal sessions can eliminate so much of that stress.
Of all the advice I give to brides when choosing a wedding photography package, I always tell them to invest in a separate Bridal/ Formal session. For some people, they don’t like the idea of seeing each other in their wedding attire before the big day, so then I suggest taking these photos after the wedding day. If you don’t mind seeing each other a couple days early, then a First Look/ Bridal Session would be perfect for you. Not only does doing this session before your wedding day free up some time on your special day, it also gives you a chance to have a run through of your wedding hair and makeup before your wedding day. Having a formal session in your wedding gown and suit also allows you time to take pictures outside of your ceremony venue. You can drive up the mountains and take photos in the dreamy pines, to the beach with the crashing waves, or a beautiful meadow of flowers. This also ensures that your pictures are taken at prime time, you will be sure to get the beautiful golden lighting if you can schedule during sunrise or sunset.
If you still aren’t convinced that a Bridal/Formal session is for you. Check out these gorgeous images I was able to capture at my last Bridal session.
I hope that you will consider doing a Bridal/formal session before or after your wedding day. It really does make such a huge difference. If you want to check out some more wedding tips, check out this post by Brides.com. Click here to view the post.
