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.

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.

Photo shoots can be intimidating sometimes! Mrs. Pricilla was a little shy at first during her bridal photo shoot but as we shot she loosened up. She chose to go with the a studio photo session. To keep it classic. I’m glad she did because it challenged us to be more creative and experiment. Typically most bridal sessions we do are on-location but this one was different and we love the results.
I’m pretty excited to release these photos because she’s just such a beautiful bride! Take a peek at our favorites from this studio bridal session. Since this shoot Mrs. Priscilla married Mr. Christopher Garcia and you can view their wedding by clicking this link: Christopher and Priscilla Wedding.

In December a coworker asked me if I could take “traditional studio” portraits. If you have seen my work you can see I rarely do studio style work but I took on this challenge.
Monica is a beautiful bride so the images were going to turn out lovely regardless. The lighting was not an issue either but the issue, if any, was going to be in the posing. Typically in the photo shoots I conduct take place at locations with furniture and objects to help with the posing but this time around we shot at my photography studio located at The Grindstone Co Working in Edinburg. We had a gray backdrop and wood floor and that was it.
The approach I took for this traditonial studio photo shoot was to show off two things; her wedding dress and her beauty. I made sure to photograph her from every angle to show off her beautiful wedding gown. Then I also made sure to make her laugh and smile so her natural beauty would shine through the images.

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!
