Charleston Bridal Portraits
There is a special place in our heart for bridal sessions. These sessions stem from an old Southern tradition; they are a day to celebrate the bride! You get the chance to model your wedding gown, test out your hair and makeup stylists, and enjoy feeling like a princess. Don’t have hair or makeup artists decided on yet? No worries! We have super talented hair & makeup professionals on our staff ready to chat with you!
In addition to getting that iconic bridal portrait to display at your reception, a bridal portrait session is also a chance for you to get used to moving around in your gown, break in your shoes, and see how your hair and makeup hold up over time, movement and humidity. Wedding photography has lots of different subject components; but bridal photography is just about the bride! We are experts in female body posing. We want you to feel like a supermodel, so will direct everything from your pose to your nose. (Haha, really!) This session is a special and unique part of your wedding experience, and a chance to get the perfect photo of you in all your bridal glory! Bring your sisters, mother, grandmother, bridesmaids or best friends- the women in your life are welcome to come along for the fun!
What do I do with my bridal portraits?
Bridals are great for displaying at your wedding! We even have 2 beautiful easels at our studio that we let you borrow for the day. We overwhelm you with favorites to choose from, so you can display more than one around the room if you like. Put 8x10s on the cake table, the gift table, the walls and let the guests enjoy looking at the beautiful bride. They also make great gifts for the bride’s (and/or groom’s) parents.
Where do I change into my dress?
This entirely depends on the chosen location for the shoot; rest assured, though, that we will go over the details before-hand and help you get it all figured out! Take a look at our photos and see which one’s speak to you. Then we’ll schedule a time and a place to meet in order to capture your beauty in that amazing venue and find you the best place to change.
Should I bring anything to the bridal session?
We suggest that you bring flip flops to walk around in (in addition to your wedding shoes), and a clear shower curtain liner to stand on in order to protect the underside of your dress. Don’t worry, they only cost $2 at Walmart, and we assure you that it doesn’t show up in your photos. (We just want to keep “the” dress clean and protected!)
