Unsure about taking Bridal Portraits on your wedding day? Here's why you should.

When it comes to wedding photography, capturing stunning and memorable images is a top priority. One of the most important parts of the day to capture is the bridal portraits. These portraits are not only a chance for the bride to shine in all her beauty but also a chance for the photographer to get creative with their shots.

However, many couples don't realize the importance of allowing plenty of time for bridal portraits on their wedding day. Let's take a look at why having ample time for bridal portraits is crucial for creating stunning wedding photos that you'll treasure for a lifetime.

  • Showcasing the Bride's Beauty

The bride is undoubtedly the star of the show on her wedding day. (I'm a big advocate for Groom portraits as well... but that's a blog for another day.) Bridal portraits are an opportunity to showcase her beauty and highlight all the special details of her look. Having plenty of time for these portraits allows the photographer to capture a range of poses and expressions, ensuring that the bride's beauty shines through in every shot.

  • Creative Freedom for the Photographer

When there is plenty of time for bridal portraits, the photographer has the creative freedom to experiment with different lighting, angles, and backgrounds. This creativity can result in unique and stunning images that capture the essence of the day.

  • A Chance to Relax and Enjoy the Moment

Wedding days can be hectic and stressful for the couple. Having time set aside for bridal portraits allows the bride to relax, take a breath, and enjoy the moment. This not only helps the bride feel more comfortable in front of the camera but also allows for more natural and genuine expressions, resulting in more authentic and memorable photos.

  • More Options for the Wedding Album

A well-rounded wedding album includes a variety of shots, including candid moments, group shots, and of course, bridal portraits. When there is plenty of time set aside for these portraits, the photographer can capture a range of images, giving the couple more options to choose from for their album.

  • A Timeless Keepsake

Finally, having plenty of time for bridal portraits results in a timeless keepsake that the couple will treasure for a lifetime. These images capture the beauty, love, and joy of the day, and they will be cherished by the couple, their families, and future generations.

Allowing plenty of time for bridal portraits on your wedding day is crucial for creating stunning and memorable wedding photos. I will always encourage my couples to say YES to bridals when we discuss your wedding day timeline. Trust me, you'll have so much fun and be thrilled with the result!
