I could have photographed Ashley for days!!! That dress, her stare, that chaise, those trees and that field…all make me a very happy photographer.

Bridals aren’t something we get to do everyday. More and more brides are getting away from them these days, but I love it when a bride does decide to stick with tradition and take them. Sure we’re going to get some on your actual wedding day, but this is such a good trial run! Brides normally get their hair and makeup test anyway, why not put on your gown and take some pictures too? Often times when we do get to take them, they’re so the bride can have a keepsake for herself. Rarely do we see a portrait displayed at a reception anymore (although we love that tradition too). More brides just want a session all for themselves. This is the day us girls dream about from the time we can walk. We dream of being a princess…am I right or am I right? So, I say, let’s dress ourselves up one extra time in our wedding gown and take some bridals! There aren’t going to be too many more time we’ll get to do this in our lives : )

Ashley, thank you for letting me capture you in that gown! You looked STUNNING!!! You were radiant then and radiant on your wedding day too. Hope you are enjoying your first few days as a Mrs.! Can’t wait to show you your wedding pics soon!
