the Art of the Bridal Portrait

Thursday, March 3, 2011

The bridal portrait, elevated to art. Can you believe how stunning this photo (and bride, of course!) are? Did you do a separate portrait session, or do you plan on donning your gown just once?

Photo by Paul von Rieter.

  9. That is gorgeous! I'd hang it in my living room.

    I wore my dress a few times. I did a trash the dress session the day after my wedding. It survived, so I had a photos done last summer for fun.

  15. I think it depends on the wedding, the gown and the bride of course. If you are spending a small fortune on the dress and the rest, I definitely think a formal portrait is imperative. Just think if all that happened and you ended up without a portrait! However if you have a more casual dress and rest and the event is not formal it seems a little extra time during pre or post ceremony will do fine. /the photo you chose for this post is exactly what I am talking about. Dress to kill and I am sure the rest of the event is over the top as well. Portrait was really essential

  19. oh, wow- that is the most beautiful bridal portrait I've ever seen! I didn't even take any- the thought seemed kind of weird to me. but after seeing this this, I wish I had! ;)

  20. Sadly I did not. And I actually regret not doing it. I do sneak my dress out every once in a while, to make sure it is still as delicious as it was on my wedding day. I may get them done as a one year anniversary present to me. We'll see.

    This portrait is stunning!
