Jennifer’s Bridal Session ~ Historic Jordan Springs

I’ll say it again & again: A bridal portrait is so worth the small amount of time and effort you put in! Not only do you get a dress rehearsal, but you get a hair & make-up rehearsal to try out your entire wedding day look.  Plus, you get to really know how your dress is going to wear the day of the wedding… I can’t even begin to count how many times I see brides fiddling with their dress after wearing it for an hour or so. These types of things can be fixed by a seamstress if you know they will happen. Spending an hour or so in front of the camera will definitely identify these issues, so you can get these fixed BEFORE the wedding day!

You may remember Jennifer from the engagement session I did for her & Geoff. Jennifer is so beautiful and utterly sweet… I’m so proud to have her as a friend! I thought she looked absolutely perfect for her bridal session, but she ended up not being completely happy with her hair and make-up. Since she had plenty of time before the wedding to look over the pictures, she was able to let her stylist and make-up artist know of the changes, so that her wedding day look was flawless (and trust me, it was indeed… you’ll see those later!).

We were able to use the grounds of Historic Jordan Springs, which was the site of her wedding ceremony and reception. The grounds are so pretty, and can make for some pretty dramatic images.
