Personally I think bridal portraits are an often over looked piece to the entire wedding photo ensemble. Typically a few great shots are included into an entire feature post. I love bridal portraits and I am going to be featuring some great sessions as they come across my path. Brides are gorgeous by nature & there is no reason not to feature them in all their glory & beauty. There is a lot that other brides-to-be can learn from looking through bridal portraits. Brides can understand what poses work, how to appear at ease in front of the camera, how well whole hearted smiling pays off, etc. As Ms. Tyra Banks says, you must study those before you to be able to bring it when your time comes…. er something like that ?
Our lead off bridal portrait feature is with lovely bride Ellen Blackburn photographed by JoPhoto in Willow Wind Farm in Lenoir City, Tennessee. The session is super sweet filled with bright sunny images, glowing smiles & that feeling you get on a soft summers day. Ellen has a very easy smile that makes you smile back as you look through the images. Accompanying Ellen is Lakota, a stunning Paint, who does a wonderful job as a model, even letting Ellen get on him bareback, while wearing her wedding dress!
