Reasons To Do A Bridal Session

If you’re a bride-to-be, understanding the concept and importance of a bridal session is essential. These sessions, often glossed over, can add so much value to the overall wedding album! So, what is it? A bridal session is a dedicated photography session focusing solely on the bride in her wedding gown. This unique photo session occurs outside the rush of the wedding day, and allows the bride to try out her wedding look in advance. So, let’s dive into the reasons to do a bridal session!

1. Trial Run

Think of a bridal session as a dress rehearsal, but for the bride! It’s a preview of how you’ll appear on your wedding day—how the dress fits, how the makeup and hair look, and how comfortable you feel in your gown! This can reveal necessary adjustments to avoid discomfort or mishaps on the actual wedding day.

2. Quality Time with the Photographer

Bridal sessions allow you to spend extended time with your photographer, a luxury often not possible on your busy wedding day. It gives you a chance to build rapport, understand their working style, and communicate your preferences, ensuring that they capture your best on the actual wedding day.

3. Capturing Detailed Portraits

On hectic wedding days, some beautiful details may get overlooked. A bridal session affords the photographer ample time to focus on capturing the intricate features of your gown, detailed shots of your jewelry, shoes, bouquet, and other accessories!

4. Reducing Wedding Day Stress

Scheduling a bridal session reduces wedding day pressures! With a bulk of formal bridal portraits already in the bag, you can relax and enjoy your special day more, knowing that crucial shots are already taken care of.

5. Freedom to Experiment

A bridal session gives you the room to explore and experiment with different poses, lighting and backdrop options without the restriction of wedding ceremony timelines. You get to create some stunning images that reflect your individuality without any rush, and really get creative!

If you’re still on the fence about scheduling a bridal session, keep in mind that your wedding is one of the most important days of your life. And you deserve to revel in it fully! A bridal session empowers you to do just that. It ensures you have a multitude of stunning photographs encapsulating the essence of your bridal journey. So, these are the reasons to do a bridal session for any bride out there that feels unsure about it. Trust, you won’t regret it!!

“Where do I begin?! Brit was an absolute joy to work with for our wedding. Her energy, talent, and creativity is unmatched! My family is now obsessed with her (as am I) and in the words of my mom, she’s a photo-taking “ninja.” We will cherish the moments she captured on our wedding day forever and I cannot wait to work with her again! Truly a gem.” -Caroline
