The Bridal Portraits You Really Want On Your Wedding Day

August 16, 2016 | nicole

While we know that couple portraits and your first look will be the most beloved photos taken on your wedding day, bridal portraits come in a close third. You’re feeling more beautiful today than ever before, about to marry the person who sees how stunning you are every day. We love the way a photographer can capture those intimate bridal moments for you to remember long after the blur of your wedding is over. From the quiet moments alone before saying “I do” to the artistic black and white images like you’ve never seen yourself, these bridal portraits are far from posed and tell the real story of your day as a bride.

  1. beautiful wedding photos !

  2. Beautiful pictures! All the brides out there are looking amazingly beautiful. One of the best ways a bride can prepare for her wedding photos is to be well-rested and by staying calm. Make sure you have all the wedding details taken care of well in advance of the wedding day so that you are not stressed out with last-minute craziness.

  3. These are amazing photos. Really like the details!
