You might not think you’d have to prepare for your bridal session, however there can be a few things to keep in mind before the session. This is one of the times you should feel the most beautiful, so it should go as smoothly as possible. These are four small things we think you should decide on and make sure are perfected before your bridal session.

The Location

The location of where you want to take these photos is a crucial part of what makes great bridal portraits. There are so many different options depending on what best fits you and the style of your dress. You can choose an industrial-city look, a greenery look, or a place that has sentimental value. We have made a list of some of our favorite indoor locations that will help you with your decision.

The Reason

One of the main reasons to take bridals is to have a test run of every detail. This way you know exactly how your hair, makeup, and even your dress is going to look! This is also a great opportunity to get the photo jitters out and get comfortable being in front of the camera. This is a time to work out the kinks, so you will not need to worry about them on your wedding day!

What To Bring

There are a few more things you should have to prepare for your bridal session other than yourself. Some necessities to make sure to bring are a bouquet to pose with, shoes, jewelry, any sentimental accessories you will be wearing and want to be photographed, and of course the main thing… your dress! Another thing we suggest is bringing an entourage of family to help with fluffing the dress, holding things, and for moral support!

We have a few great poses we love to get our brides to do during their bridal session, but we would love to hear some of your ideas! You should come with a few poses that make you feel beautiful and reflect your personality to make these pictures personal to you!

These tips are just a few things we have gathered from different sessions. Most of all, these photos are so fun to take and we want it to be the best for you. These photos will be treasured by you, your husband, and your family forever. You will be so thankful you took them!
