Bridal portraits are a Southern tradition and I love photographing them! Most brides do a hair and makeup trial before the wedding and bridal portraits are a great way to make use of your trial and make sure everything looks perfect on camera. It’s also a great opportunity to have photos taken at a different location than your wedding venue and add some variety to your photos. It’s a session that’s all about making a bride feel beautiful without any of the stress or time constraints of the wedding day!
Catherine opted to do her bridal portraits at The Gallery here in Houston. The Gallery is a perfect location for doing bridal portraits because they have a large, comfortable dressing room for getting ready and a huge variety of beautiful spots to take photos. Here are a few of my favorite photos from Catherine’s bridal portrait session!
