Beautifully Classic Bridal Portraits

Meghan and Andy just tied the knot on Saturday, so I can FINALLY share the exquisite images we were able to capture at her bridal session  at the beginning of April.
For those that don’t know, the weather here in Virginia Beach is notorious for being unpredictable. On the day that we did these pictures, it was under 40 degrees (quite chilly!) and then the next day it was 80 degrees… I couldn’t make this up if I wanted to! But under her layers of satin and tulle, Meghan was warm and definitely rocked out her amazing session.

With the advent of Pinterest, most people think that in order to have amazing pictures, you need lots of props, or a “thing” to make your photo shoot special. But Meghan proves that all you need to create beautifully classic bridal portraits is your wedding dress, a gorgeous bouquet from Palette of Petals, and a killer 1,000-watt smile!
