Bridal Portrait Sessions
If you’re getting married soon, first of all, congratulations! It’s a big day and there’s so much that goes on leading up to it. One of the best parts is getting to wear your dream dress. However, if your game plan is to get photos of yourself in it on the actual wedding day, you should rethink that. One of the best ways to preserve the memory of yourself in your dress is to find wedding photographers in Hobart and get bridal portraits done.
Bridal Portrait Sessions – What Are They and Do You Need Them
What is a bridal portrait?
Bridal portraits are a lesser-known sub-section of wedding photography. Typically, brides will put on their dress, get all dolled up, and have a solo photoshoot taken at their ideal location. The portrait prints resulting from this photo session will make lovely gifts that the wife can give to her spouse and/or parents. It can also serve as decor for the reception by way of creative displays.
The time spent on having a bridal portrait done often coincides with a ‘makeup trial’ and can be used to get used to wearing in your wedding shoes, and feeling out your wedding dress – often with friends and family so you can bounce ideas off one another.
What are the benefits of taking a bridal portrait?
Having bridal portraits taken are undeniably another add-on and extra expense. The advantages far outweigh these factors, however.
- Not time-pressed
No matter how well your wedding is planned or how perfectly it’s meant to flow, stress and even chaos can manifest on the day itself. Bridal portraits on the day itself are usually taken under some kind of time constraint. This is understandable since the wedding day can be pretty jam-packed as it is.
When photos of the bride are only taken on the wedding day, it’s usually during tight pockets of time: before the reception, before you leave for the ceremony or even while the couple photos are being taken. On-site same-day bridal portraits can make you stressed out and feel a little rushed. At the end of it, you might not have the most ideal photos in order to immortalise how you look.
However, when you opt to have a bridal portrait session, you won’t be under a time constraint, you won’t be rushing to head elsewhere, and your creativity can manifest all the way to entire set-ups.
- A chance to get creative
It should be noted that bridal portraits aren’t strictly constrained to you in your wedding dress. Aside from any formal shots, you’ll be able to express yourself in more casual, fun ways. If you have any furry friends, for example, you can get photos of yourself with your beloved pet. Some brides even go as far as taking boudoir photos, making for a great personalised surprise wedding gift for their soon to be spouse.
When you set aside time to get bridal portraits done, you open yourself up to a world of creative possibilities. It also gives you far more flexibility and far less stress on the wedding day itself.
Bridal portraits are an excellent choice to make for any bride-to-be – of course it doesnt have to be limited to the female side of things though! All the benefits of bridal portraits can also just as easliy apply to the Men.
Whether you’re doing it to preserve your look in your dream dress, to express yourself in certain ways for a gift to your spouse or both, it’s a fantastic experience and keepsake. It allows you to be far less stressed out or rushed during your actual wedding day itself, much in the same way an engament shoot can too, without the addition of your future spouse.
