Megan : Bridals

Ok I’m going to make you wait one more day for Megan & Joey’s wedding photos but consider her bridals a nice teaser!

After shooting this bridal session with Megan I decided I want ALL my brides to do bridal portraits!!!  I have been holding these photos for almost two months and I felt like it was literally killing me!  Megan looks so amazing I want to plaster her all over my website and marketing material.  I’ve already planned the Megan bridal wall in the studio!  Plus she ordered a beautiful framed print to display at the reception which I love.  I’m normally a canvas girl but when Megan asked about doing a framed portrait I agreed that it would suit the image much better!

We met at Gari Melcher’s Belmont Home and Studio for portraits after hours, this worked out well because didn’t have to worry about anyone being in the way.  Plus it gave us tons of gorgeous locations to shoot in.  It was my first time shooting here and I almost died with happiness when we followed the trail into the woods.  The light coming through the trees was magical and made my heart sing!

So why am I such a fan of bridal portraits now?  On a wedding day we are usually limited on time so bridal portraits are limited to 5-10 min in most likely one location.  Things can be hectic and rushed.  Doing bridal portraits well ahead of the wedding date gives you a chance to do a trial run of how you want to look on your wedding day.  With no stress!  Plus I loved that Megan brought her mom to the shoot to help her with her dress and be there for the photos.  I hope that it was a special memory for the two of them.  As Megan’s mom explained the bridal portraits are the last photo of Megan as just her daughter soon she will be a daughter and a wife!

Megan looked STUNNING, Kristen from GoGo Gorgeous did her makeup and it was perfect!  I loved this session so much!!!  I’m so excited that Megan and Joey are now husband and wife!  Not only do I get to share these photos finally but I get to share their amazing wedding photos too!  I super love this couple and I’m so HAPPY for them!!!  So check back tomorrow for their wedding photos!!

Make sure you scroll all the way to the end for a special offer on bridal portraits!!

Since I had such a fun time with Megan doing her bridal portraits I am offering a free 16×20 canvas bridal portrait to display at your reception to the next five brides that book a session!  Hurry up and contact me today before these sell out!
