Oh y’all, the Bridal session is one of my absolute favorite sessions to photograph! Not only does it provide the opportunity for brides to spend additional time in their amazing gowns – it often means another chance to utilize the wedding venue, which was absolutely the case for sweet bride Emily! From the moment I entered Callanwolde Fine Arts Center on Venue Visit day, I dreamed of all the photo possibilities available at this stunning location! I love that we were able to incorporate the gorgeous architecture and details of the house outside of the time constraints of the wedding day!

And, I just loved Emily’s classic style! In her Rosa Clara gown from LaRaine’s Bridal Boutique, she reminded me of the amazing Grace Kelly! And, the special surprise ending of this shoot came when her adorable dog Rocky joined her for a few sweet photos in front of the house! It’s almost too cute to handle!! I can’t wait to share Emily & Austin’s wedding day soon, but in the meantime, enjoy these beautiful Bridal Portraits of Emily!
