Although you might think having extra portrait sessions with your wedding photographer may be a bit over the top, you may want to think again. Take a look at these top reasons why you should schedule a bridal portrait session with your photographer before the big day comes.

1. To do a test run and get to know your wedding photographer.

Wedding photos are important because they will tell your wedding story for years to come. That being said, you want to make sure that your photographer gets them right. Dress up and do a test run. This will allow you to voice any ideas you’d like to try for the wedding photos, as well as give you the opportunity to get more comfortable with your photographer before the big day.

2. More one-on-one time with the photographer.

You wedding day will be busy. Busy getting married, chatting with guests, taking photos with the wedding party, eating, dancing the night away . . . you get the point. With all the festivities going on and taking group photos, you may feel like you didn’t get very much one-on-one time with your photographer by the end of it all. Scheduling a bridal portrait session will allow you that personal time you want with your photographer.

3. To test all your wedding day accessories and dress together.

Try your wedding look out! Test run your hair, makeup and dress to ensure that everything properly comes together, and why not take photos while you are all dolled up? One less thing on your to-do checklist!

4. Relax and be in the moment on your wedding day…

without stressing about getting the perfect photos. If you plan ahead and capture your dream bridal photos ahead of time at a private session with your photographer, you won’t have to stress about getting as many on the day of the wedding. 

5. Getting the most out of your wedding dress.

So much time, effort, and money goes into picking out that perfect wedding dress, and you wear it only once! If you want to get your money and time’s worth out of your dress and wear it more than once, schedule a private session with your photographer for bridal photos. Each time you look at those photos you will remember how special that dress made you feel!

6. Pre-wedding gift for your parents.

Some choose to give their parents a wedding gift for all that they’ve done to help out with the wedding. Planning, finances, and even just supporting of the of the wedding planning process, parents often pitch in a lot. Bridal portraits are a great gift to give your parents as a thank you.

7. Showcase them at your wedding.

Some couples like to have portraits of both the bride and the groom showcased at their wedding. Having those beautiful bridal portraits to look at will get your guests to admire your beauty that much more when you walk down the aisle.
