I’ve been aching to share these images! Caitlin and Justin’s wedding was this past Saturday and I’ve had to keep Caitlin’s bridal portraits a secret for almost two months! Do you know how hard that is, when you have such a beautiful girl like Caitlin in front of your camera lens. Super hard!!! We had excellent weather, and The Settlement in Bulverde, TX provided the perfect location with it’s old buildings and of course those turquoise doors! A place after my own heart. Caitlin did an excellent job with making these images her own by bringing a blue jean jacket (super cute), her grandpa’s ladder and an adorable old chair. I was in prop heaven. Enjoy some of her bridals below and stay tuned for her fabulous wedding!

The Bridal Portrait is mainly a southern tradition where 1-2 months before the wedding, the new bride has a photo session with her full wedding attire. It is one of the few times in a women’s life where she will have her portraits taken alone, and most brides use their trial run on their hair and makeup for the session. No sense it wasting all that beauty.
It’s also used to create those beautiful images that you don’t have time for on the wedding day and for the bride and the photographer to get to know each other a little better. It makes for a wonderful afternoon spent in your dress, all made-up, feeling like a supermodel. Also, you get that gorgeous portrait at the sign in book for your wedding which is traditionally given to the mother of the bride.. A Bridal Portrait is a must, because they are great gifts for the groom, parents and grandparents.
