We absolutely love doing bridal photography shoots with the bride before her wedding day. It’s all about her looking fabulous in her wedding dress with out the stress of the big day. We do take photos of the bride on her actual wedding day too, but a bridal shoot is concentrated and allows us to dedicate a few hours to different locations, lighting, and above all else, making the bride look awesome!
The downside to these bridal shoots – and believe us, it’s the only one – is having to wait to publish them on our blog so the groom won’t see them. Yes, it’s selfish, but we are a tad obsessive as photographers and can’t help getting excited about a shoot. This particular bridal shoot with Falon was especially tough for us to keep from the public. She is a charming bride, we were at Biltmore Estate in Asheville, and her wedding was a whole month away.
So when is this lovely bride getting married? … Today! We scheduled this blog post to go live minutes after the couple’s first look at the Inn on Biltmore Estate. That’s how anxious we were to share these photos with the world. We timed this just right in case the groom is checking our blog from an iPhone. You never know…
Asheville make-up artist Blush by Wendy did a wonderful job with Falon’s make-up for this shoot, Suraj Spa & Salon did her hair, and the Bloom Room provided a gorgeous bouquet. And of course thanks to the bride’s mother, Nancy, for coming along with us. Enjoy our bridal photography and send your well wishes and congrats to the newlyweds, Falon and Clay! We know their wedding is going to be amazing and we will be posting a sneak peek of it next week.
