Jessica's Bridals

I met Jessica for some bridal shots the other day at a park near where she grew up. We had such a fun time! Jessica was so willing to try just about anything and was one of the most relaxed brides I've ever photographed.

I love it when brides decide to schedule a bridal session with me. It gives me the opportunity to spend a few hours with her before the wedding doing some casual shots and experimenting, which alleviates so much stress on the big day. With all of her bridal shots out of the way, I was really able to focus on getting some candid, more photojournalistic shots of Jessica on her wedding (which was yesterday, by the way :). wedding pics coming soon!). In Jessica's case, it was extremely fortuntate that we did a bridal shoot because her wedding day was the hottest day of the year! She also got a chance to try out her hair and makeup before the wedding. So if you're planning on getting married, I would highly recommend a bridal session.

I never post any bridal shots on my blog until after the wedding. You know... that whole thing of the groom not seeing the bride in her dress until her wedding... yeah, I try not to ruin the surprise:). Since I finished editing these pics, I've been dying to post them! So without further ado, here are a few of my favs from Jessica's bridal session:

Gotta get me some sun flares

Jessica is so adventurous! I have at least 40 shots of her twirling or jumping through the air!
