Why You Should Have A Bridal Session

Today, we’ll be talking about bridal sessions and why you should have one! Bridal sessions are typically formal photography sessions that are used to get individual portraits of the bride in her full dress or outfit, before the wedding day. This is due to the fact that sometimes there isn’t enough time on the actual wedding day to get a lot of individual portraits– Therefore, having a bridal session is a great option to get those shots ahead of time. The photos taken during a bridal session are generally kept a “secret” until the day of your wedding, where they are often unveiled in a display at the reception. It’s a wonderful way to surprise your guests! If you’re interested in learning more about why you should have a bridal session, you’re in the right place! Let’s get started.
