A Northern Girls Guide to Bridal Sessions

By E. Henigan Studios | Feb 07 2017

A Northern girl herself, Erin Henigan loves the Southern tradition of bridal sessions. For those of you considering this fun pre-wedding tradition, enjoy Erin’s tips below on how to make the most of your session for your upcoming Charlotte wedding:

Enjoying your dream day with confidence and comfort is the definition of the ultimate wedding day.  A bridal session is a great preview of the beautiful bride you will be on wedding day. From finding the perfect shade of lipstick to choosing the right heel height, you will definitely feel more confident when it comes to your wedding day look. Plus, you will feel great about your beauty team, colors, flowers and dress decisions.

The top-four tips for bridal sessions include:

  1. Try multiple lip colors, and photograph your top two favorites.
  2. Do the session the month of your wedding, this will bring you confidence and you'll know if you need any last minute alterations or a new pair of shoes.
  3. Get flowers that are similar if not the same as your wedding day bouquet.  You get to see a trial run of the flowers, and this will guarantee your satisfaction on your big day!  I have had so many brides find themselves upset and not loving their bouquets on their wedding day, so why not give them a real trial run! 
  4. Photograph the session at sunrise or sunset to get the best climate and lighting in Charlotte
