Although not every St. Louis bride treats herself to bridal portraits, the ones who do are in for a big treat! We like to do bridal portraits on the same day that the bride does her hair and makeup trial. That way, she looks similar to the way she'll look on her wedding day - but a whole lot more relaxed. We can take the time to explore different poses and lighting that we might not have time for on the big day. It's about having fun and feeling beautiful.
Emma chose to do her bridal portraits at the First Presbyterian Church in Kirkwood where the wedding would be held, but bridal portraits can take place at any location the bride chooses.
Check out some of our favorites from Emma's bridal session.
Emma's hair and makeup was done by Katie Hilgendorf.
