Mims House Bridal Portraits photo

Bridal portraits — the perfect reason to get dressed up before the wedding! I love getting to photograph brides before their big day because we get to dedicate an entire session to her bridal look. She has always dreamt about what she’d look like as a bride one day. She probably tried on lots of dresses and thought lots about which one is the perfect one for her. “Is this the dress?” “Should I keep trying more on?” “Is this what I thought I’d end up with?” “Okay yes, this is it!” “Holy moly, I’m a BRIDE.” “I can’t wait for him to see me in it.” “Can it be the wedding day yet?!” A million questions and thoughts, but now she has her dress. And it’s perfect. Bridal portraits are all about the bride and her bridal look. These Mims House bridal portraits of Laura are no different. She was exquisite, as every bride should feel.

The funny thing about this session is that A.J. was actually supposed to photograph Laura’s bridals. But due to a last minute family emergency for A.J., I actually got the privilege of doing this session myself. Laura and I became quick friends! What an honor it is for she and her mom to trust me to capture such a momentous time in her life. And even more so, what an honor it is for A.J. to also trust me to do Laura’s bridal session in her place. These are the portraits that will perhaps be displayed at Laura’s wedding, and also maybe in their new home or her parents’ home. I don’t take that lightly!

Laura was an absolute natural in front of the camera. Her wedding gown was a perfect representation of her. She has such a kind spirit and carefree attitude, which I’m sure you’ll be able to see in these images. Laura, thank you for trusting me to capture these portraits of you. Everything about your bridal look is absolutely lovely. These Mims House bridal portraits are ones that I’ll always remember.
