There are two great reasons to add bridal portrait session to your wedding package!
It’s practice run for your hair and makeup. You get to see how your bridal hairdo will look with your dress and if you don’t like the original plan you can always change it up before the wedding day. Same idea applies to your makeup. You get to see how you beautiful you will look on your wedding day and make adjustments if needed.
Tradition is important in the wedding culture and having your bridal photos taken independently from your wedding day builds tradition for you and your family. I’ve been to a few homes where you find a bridal photo of their grandparents still hanging on the wall. As a photographer I love that idea that you will forever stop time in a bridal portrait.

In 2011 my business was growing fast and we were doing a lot of great work for our clients. I was discovering a lot of new shoot locations and for this bridal we took the risk and used two very accessible and public locations, which is not typical for bridal sessions. These days I am renting very fancy locations for my brides but I am glad to show my beginnings. Michelle, the bride, was a trooper. She trusted our vision!
Her photos were shot in two different locations by myself and my assistant at the time, Ms. Lori Alaniz. Archer park was the more “formal” location then we traveled to a abandoned shack on 10th street in McAllen for the “informal” location. I love the contrast between the two looks and I think it’s always important to try different things for your clients. Here are my favorite shots from this 2011 bridal photo shoot.

Bridal portrait sessions are some of my favorite photo shoots to conduct but it’s always so hard to show them off because we have to keep them secret so the groom won’t see them. Here are some I took back in 2014 for Mrs. Stacie at Memory Lane Photo Spot. This venue makes for beautiful bridal portraits because of style of the home and how they family has it decorated. Stacie was also amazing to work with because she trusted my creative eye and was a gorgeous bride. Here are my favorite shots from this bridal session.

Talk about throwback, flashback and way back when… I took these beautiful photos of Mrs. Reyes in 2012 a few months before her wedding. We shot these at the Quinta Mazatlan World Birding Center located in South McAllen.
I was young, ambitious and straight out of college. My goal was to make a name of myself among many of the great photographers her in the Rio Grande Valley. You can see me exploring and trying to find my style in a lot of my very first professional shoots such as this one.
When you first starting shooting you want to try everything and soon after you find your footing and build on that style. I think if you look at this and my current work you can see that from 2012 to 2016 my photography style has been consistent. Thank you Mrs. Ruth for allowing me to capture these special moments for you as I took was climbing milestones in my life. Enjoy!
