Chancie’s bridal portrait session in The Old Mill Garden (back portion of the Falls Park area, near Cleveland Park). The old stone ruins from the mill provide a cool and interesting backdrop.
Time of year: Spring (Late April)
Time of day: late afternoon (aprox 5:30)
We had a great time at Windy Wedding and Event Barn, a barn wedding venue on a farm in Simpsonville, SC, photographing Amber’s bridal portraits. The dress looked absolutely amazing on Amber, and even though it wasn’t yet Spring, Windy Hill Farm provided an awesome atmosphere. Amber has so many wonderful expressions…she always seems to have so much positive energy! Cody and Amber’s wedding photos are coming soon! Check out their engagement photos here.
Stephanie’s bridal portraits at The Westin Poinsett Hotel
We had a great time with Carrie during her Furman bridal portrait session. When we came across the snowball bushes, Carrie just HAD to have those in the photos.
A few light clouds were welcome on this hot day for Liz’s bridal portrait in the Rock Quarry Garden in Downtown Greenville. Diffusing the hot sun softened the daylight just enough allowing us to add flash in a softbox for some subtle directional light.
So when the bride shows up in a red 1965 Corvette convertible, you know it’s gonna be a fun portrait session! This car is particularly meaningful to Rebekah because it’s one her father bought when she was a little girl and began restoring so that he could give it to her when she was older. Anderson University campus is a beautiful location for a bridal portrait. So excited to show these photos off…one of my favorite bridal portrait sessions of the year!
It truly is elegant and full of Southern Charm! We had the pleasure of photographing Mandy’s bridal portraits at The Duncan Estate in the Fall. December was fast approaching and the Christmas decor was already adorning the house. Some of my favorite shots are the reflections in the mirrors in the entrance in front of the grand staircase.
What do you do if it rains during a bridal portrait session?
The possibilities are almost endless for creative angles and framing for shooting a bridal portrait at The Old Cigar Warehouse. Here are a few favs from Kelsey’s session. Often mid/late afternoon is the best time to do an Old Cigar Warehouse bridal portrait because of the way the sunlight streams through the upper level windows. There are also some cool little archways and overhangs where you can get some really great natural light.
