Finding the perfect location for your bridal portraits can be tricky. You need gorgeous scenery, no crowds, and good weather conditions to keep your dress clean and dry. However, sometimes those stars don’t align how we want them to. If you want dreamy bridal portraits (and don’t want to stand in freezing temps to get them), may I suggest a studio bridal session? Editorial wedding photography is trending—and for good reason! You can turn your bridals into bespoke works of art that become cherished heirlooms.
Over the years, I’ve received many requests from former brides for boudoir, maternity, and branding photos. We have been on the search for an idyllic waterfront photography studio for years, and we finally found The One. It’s all prepped, designed, and ready for you to enjoy. We can’t wait to share it with you!
This large photography studio features several bedrooms, bathrooms, living and kitchen areas, plus an expansive patio, deck, lawn, and picturesque waterfront. The portrait possibilities are endless! You have space and privacy to schedule when you want and get all the creative shots you envision. Since we own the studio, there’s no rush to squeeze your session into a time slot or pick a specific time and location to avoid the crowds. So, go ahead and book your bridal session in the middle of the week and get a day to relax and unwind by the lake. You deserve it!
If that’s not convincing enough, I have a few more studio session perks for you.
In public, we’re constrained to rules and norms. You may not feel comfortable wearing certain things or trying interesting poses with onlookers. But away from the public eye, you have the privacy to express yourself how you want. You can try artistic runway outfits or blur the lines between bridal and boudoir attire. In general, it’s easier for most people to relax and get into “model mode” when it’s just you and the photographer.
With ample space to change, I encourage you to bring along any outfits you might want to try during your session. If you’re wearing a full gown for the ceremony and a cocktail dress for the reception, bring them both! Or anything else you might want to show off in your bridal portraits.
As mentioned above, a studio allows you to take both classic bridal portraits and some boudoir shots. If your ceremony is early in the day or you have less wedding photography coverage, we can take some photos of you getting ready and detail shots to save time on your wedding day.
We have an incredibly talented hair and makeup artist in-house, so you have the flexibility to change up your hair and makeup styles during your session—something that’s hard to do without a studio and prep room.
I am an artist at heart. In addition to photography, I really enjoy the styling aspect of portraiture, too. I would love to work with you to create a styled set or two for your bridal session. If you dream of front-cover editorial shots, this is the time to do it! A curated photography studio is among the best places to get those striking editorial photos. We can adjust the set, lighting, poses, décor, etc., to achieve the desired look. Peruse Pinterest or other bridal sites to create an inspiration board to kick off the planning process. I’m happy to share my bridal portfolio with you as well!
