Stacy of SMS Photography emailed me this morning to tell me about a bridal shoot I might want to share. It made me think: Hmmm…California girls don’t know what that is. You see, a bridal shoot is (to my understanding) a very southern tradition. The bride typically has a solo photo session with her photographer in full makeup, hair and dress, often times months, weeks or days in advance. The bridal shoot is NOT done on the day of the wedding. The photos from this shoot are so fun, it makes me realize why some brides do this–plenty of time for fun, artsy shots.
