We have been waiting in anticipation to share with you Elizabeth Gilliam’s bridal session at the Botanical Gardens.
The lovely couple is now hitched and honeymooning. While they are blissfully celebrating their new union, we thought we’d admire the simplicity and sweetness of this session.
While shooting this, Liz’s face always lit up at the mention of her then fiance’s name. It was apparent that she was ready to marry the love of her life. I couldn’t have been happier to capture these moments.
We encourage all brides to do an engagement or bridal shoot for a number of reasons:
1. On the day of your wedding, you will be more comfortable in front of the camera. Liz mentioned that she was so happy to have done the bridal shoot because she was less tense in front of the camera the day of her wedding. Less tense = better photos
2. You will gain a better trust that your photographer can and will lead you in the best light and opportunity for priceless and genuine images, especially on your wedding day.
3. The wedding day is more carefree since you have worked with the photographer prior to that day. You trust that he or she will capture the best memories, so you are now able to relax and enjoy every second.
