Although a little chilly, Macy had Bridal Portraits taken in the hip industrial area of downtown NC to feature this stunning gown she is wearing by Something Bleu Bridal House

Your wedding day is one of the most important days of your life. It is a day to celebrate your love and commitment to each other and to start your lives together as one.

THE MOST important aspect of your wedding day is photography. Your wedding photos will be cherished memories that you will look back on for years to come. The reason I am so passionate about this is that for one, I experienced this and have no photos to look back on from my wedding and to be honest, these images from your wedding day are the only thing that last a lifetime. The flowers die, the people who attended the wedding sometimes make their way out of our lives, the leftover frozen cake is eaten on your one year anniversary..

Bridal portraits are taken either before the wedding on the day you get your trial hair and make up for the big day, on your wedding day or after your wedding day. I have done all three of these situations. Sometimes my couples like to have them done before the wedding so it is one less thing to stress about on the day of. Some like to do it after the wedding a couple weeks after. This truly is left up to the unique situation everyone has. However, it is one of the most pertinent factors of the whole experience because these are the images you will print, share on social media, hang on your walls in your home. Bridal portraits are a beautiful way to capture the essence of your wedding day. They are a perfect way to remember this special day and to share your love with your family and friends.

The gorgeous lady you see here in this stunning gown from Something Bleu Bridal House in Wilmington, NC had these portraits taken in the center of the city. It is a bustling port city with a rich history, which happens to be my hometown and where I was born! The city is also home to a number of beautiful parks and gardens, making it a lovely backdrop for bridal portraits. Bridal portraits are great to do before your wedding on your hair and makeup trial run day. If you're looking for a more urban setting like this one, Historic Downtown Wilmington is a perfect option. Regardless of your location, leave it to our team to find the most fitting and original location for your bridal portraits. No matter where you choose to take your bridal portraits, we know you'll look beautiful in them!

From experience, getting a wedding day hair and makeup trial is a great idea! Some of our brides do their wedding hair and makeup trial on the day of their engagement session and some do it closer to the wedding day. Either way, it is important to see how it photographs. Heavy contouring can do a disfavor and too light of make up can also pose its disadvantages so finding that perfect in-between BEFORE the big day is crucial.
