Simone decided to fly in from New York City for her bridal portraits at the same place where her wedding was held, the Ballantyne Hotel in Charlotte, NC. I am a big fan of bridal portraits personally, they allow for an entire session to be dedicated to the bride… in a dress that will be worn once in her life. Why not wear it twice?! Also, there is just simply not enough time to get the images that can be created at a bridal session on the actual wedding day… and I love to get creative with our brides! This girl was willing to jump up on a wall in front of that huge mirror… and squeeze into a bathroom entrance with a huge reflector, flashes and two photographers just for those “pretty in pink” images below (you’d never know they were shot in a bathroom!) It’s fun. When girls are unsure if they want to do them… my answer is always, why not? Wear it twice instead of only once… and get some killer shots to add to your album along the way :)
Be on the lookout for Simone and Ken’s wedding day coming soon to a blog near you!
