We, as wedding photographers, are tasked with the intimate, stressful task of capturing the bride on her wedding day, a day packed with emotions and a tons logistical details. You probably haven’t heard yet, but the wedding day is not the best occasion for a fabulous portrait or bridal session. You can have the best wedding photographer in the world, but you should understand that they have only seconds for everything, and there is no way to change or postpone the timeline.
I was able to convince a few of my brides to do a bridal session, and they all were delighted. None of them ever complained, they realized that it was much more comfortable and overall better, just because there was no stress of the big day.
I get it that you won’t understand that since it’s usually your first wedding. But the actual wedding day is full of tension and stress, although that stress is mostly a “positive” one. While doing this on another day we have time. You won’t have your head full of tasks and lists of what to do next. Your expression will be completely different, and your smile relaxed.
We also won’t have stress about the weather and light during the wedding day. We can choose the best time, best light and location. There will be no interruption from wedding guests or the planner. And it relieves wedding day pressure.
The bridal session could also be arranged before the wedding, for example, for the day of your makeup trial. This way we get to know your dress, your better angle, and your best smile, which also has a lot of advantages. Plus we can display your bridal session pictures during your wedding day!
You also will be more relaxed during your wedding day, because you know that your portraits will be perfect anyhow. So, if you have a fabulous gown or you want to have timeless, beautiful portraits, you should consider a bridal session!
