Bridal portraits are the perfect opportunity to showcase the beauty and elegance of your wedding dress in a creative way, without the time constraints of the wedding day. As a Knoxville wedding photographer, the bridal session is a highly creative session.
Knoxville provides numerous backdrops that a skilled wedding photographer can use to their advantage. The unique thing about Knoxville, especially downtown Knoxville, is that you can capture a variety of looks all in one location. This means you do not have to travel to multiple locations. One thing to keep in mind is that on the weekends, most locations in Knoxville are very busy, so if you are aiming for a more private session, it might be best to have your bridal portraits taken on a weekday.
Bridal portraits usually take place in advance of your wedding day. Although typically a southern tradition, it is growing more and more ever so popular. The main purpose of bridal portraits is the opportunity to showcase the bride and her wedding dress before the wedding day. This isn’t to say that there won’t be photos of the bride and her wedding dress on the wedding day, it’s just that the wedding day is usually fast paced and hectic. Another benefit of bridal portraits in advance of the wedding day is that you will be able to print photographs that you can display at your wedding reception.
