Whether you take your bridal portraits weeks before your wedding or at your Fort Worth wedding venue the day of your big day, make them unique to you! There are so many ways to make sure that your bridal portrait session is not just another session, but one you will look back on with fondness.

  1. If you are taking them prior to your wedding day, choose a location that means a lot to you and your future spouse. You could take them in the field he proposed, or the part of town that you had your first date. This is an easy way to make your bridal portraits unique to you.
  2. While taking the photos, get creative with your veil! Ask the photographer to use the veil to create stunning shots by going under the veil and taking pictures, letting it be in front of the lens, and even just different angles. Use your veil to your advantage  to create the most stunning pictures.
  3. Bring something special with you to add to the pictures. Bring a picture of your parents or grandparents wedding to hold while taking a few of your pictures. You could also bring your family heirloom to add to your pictures to make them more personal for your whole family. You could even bring your favorite lounge chair! It sounds extra, but you’ll love looking back at all of your pictures with it.
  4. Lastly, use the space that you’re taking pictures in to your advantage. If there are winding stairs, take some shots from above with you walking down. If there is stained glass or big windows, use the light to create beautifully shadow cast images. Show that you are the center of attention by standing in the middle of arches or pillars. Space can be used to create beautiful pictures, so use it!
