They come and go… when I first started out in professional photography 21+ years ago – bridal sessions were just something every bride did. A little different then, as most bridal sessions were done in the studio before the actual wedding. Well, they are becoming a standard again – with a little different flare calling them “love the dress” or “trash the dress” sessions – and they are much more fun than ever before. You spend so much time and money picking out the perfect dress – I can’t help but encourage my brides to put those beautiful gowns on one more time for a fashion shoot. Best part is… leaving it dirty after the wedding and then taking your bridal session to some where fun downtown… or finding a beautiful location to do all those amazing shots you really wanted to do the wedding day… but weren’t willing to get the dress dirty!
