It was such a pleasure for us to photograph the wedding of Monica and Truitt yesterday. It’s so meaningful to be part of a wedding for family… people you know and love. Wedding photographs will be up soon, but for now we wanted to share a selection of Monica’s gorgeous bridal portraits. The first? Her dad’s favorite.
Here’s a little behind-the-scenes on how to get great bridal portraits…. First, try finding a way to transport the bride so that : a. her dress doesn’t get wrinkled, b. her veil doesn’t get squished or pulled out of her hair, and c. not a smidge of grit or grime touches anything white. Tougher than it looks, right?
How many layers of tulle does it take to get to the center of a bride?
Obligatory photo of the bride with her brother. (On a side note, I’m thinking of doing a blog post to show how many pictures I have of Dave holding bouquets!)
Now, get the bride to give you a nice, natural smiling expression….
Be sure to pick a day with no wind. Oops!
Actually, we did alright in spite of the obstacles. Here are some favorites from the session.
And the bride’s choice:
Congratulations to Truitt. You got yourself one beautiful bride.
