Honesty time — bridals are one of the most difficult sessions to shoot, by far.
Picking those beautiful outdoor locations usually means either wind & freezing temps, or super bad humidity and literally SO MANY MOSQUITOES (my last bridal client literally got bit on her face halfway through the shoot...)
You also have to be super careful not to move too much, in order to keep from messing up the dress (more often that not, you’ll be secretly standing on a trash bag to protect it from dirt ✌🏽), and you have to make sure you don’t make a mess of the flowers on the way to/during the shoot (one of my sessions ended with a vase full of water spilling all over the passenger seat in my car, and another left dye from the ribbon all over the bride’s hands).
But despite all of that, bridals are my absolute favorite. I love the challenge of it all, because the final result is always absolutely striking, and leaves me giggling like a small child with excitement (literally). Every time.
The combination of a beautiful bride, in a stunning dress, snuggled up next to her groom — with gorgeous flowers and an amazing location — is absolutely to die for, and totally worth all the work it takes to make it happen ✨
