Last week we did an engagement photo shoot in Las Colinas with Ashley and Jonathan. They were both amazing, fun and very easy to work with. Their images are simply stunning and we can not wait for their wedding day in May.
Bridal Shoots usually occur at least a month or two before your wedding date.
Think of your portrait session as a chance to do a dry run before your wedding. Since you will need to have your hair and makeup styled for the pictures, it gives you the opportunity to perfect your bridal beauty before the big day. This is great, as you will be able to spend some time with the results to make sure that they last over the hours and that everything feels comfortable to you. The same goes for your gown. If you notice anything that is not quite right about the fit during your picture shoot, it gives you the chance for a quick adjustment before you wear your wedding gown for real.
The week or two before the bridal session, be very careful of the sun and tan lines. Nothing can ruin a bridal portrait more quickly than tan lines, especially with today’s strapless gowns.
The location of your bridal shoot is one of the most important decisions you can make.
Our favorite locations are Dallas Arboretum, Las Colinas Canals, Rockwall Harbor, North Dallas Area, Downtown Dallas. Some parks and other public locations may require photography permits, so beware of that extra cost. We will always do some traditional shots (for Mom) as well some contemporary bridal art images, so you will have plenty to choose from for your bridal picture at your wedding reception.
The wedding ceremony of Judith and Abner was at Venetian Terrace located on the historic Mandalay Canal in Las Colinas, Irving. Romantic atmosphere with European elagance. Wedding reception was held at the La Cima Club – twenty six floors above The Towers at William Square in Las Colinas. Judith and Abner arrived to the La Cima Club on romantic gondola, provided by Gondola Adventures in Las Colinas.
Elizabeth’s bridal photo session was very special for us and we were honored to be a part of her wedding as well as her wedding photographers. She could not choose the location of her bridal so we took her to Las Colinas Canals and to Dallas Arboretum. On the way to Dallas Arboretum we stoped in downtown Dallas for couple of amazing shots.
The Mandalay Canal Walk is in the heart of Las Colinas and with the Italian like architecture it is just perfect place to do bridal portraits, engagement photo sessions or even weddings. Jennifer’s bridal shoot was last year in February. The weather was not the perfect one but the pictures and of course the bride are amazing.
