The Best part of the day after a wedding is I can finally share bridal portraits!! I had some friends who were from different parts of the country ask me.. "What is this?? What is a bridal portrait?" Bridal portraits are truly a southern thing. It's basically a time for the bride to not only capture a portrait of herself but it's a trial run. Hair, Make-Up and the GOWN!
Most of my brides have chosen locations other than their wedding venue to create completely different looks! I have had the pleasure of photographing some amazing brides this year and almost all of them are having bridal portraits! I encourage friends and Moms to come along to help and enjoy in seeing their daughter and friend in her gown on some occasions for the very first time!
Allison and Justin were married yesterday and I am so excited to share her bridal portraits that were taken last month at the JC Raulston Arboretum in Raleigh!
We really tempted fate with storms all around us, but for an hour and only an hour the sky opened up and mother nature let us capture this beautiful bride in her amazing gown at one of my favorite locations..
Congratulations Allison, you were breathtaking!
