It has always been a dream of mine to become a Four Seasons wedding photographer, and while I haven’t shot a wedding there (yet!), I came pretty close when Ashley asked me to do her bridal photos at the landmark hotel. Ashley is from Texas, where bridal photos are a quintessential element to any and all wedding photography packages. It’s not as popular here in Colorado, but I’m hoping it’ll catch on and more brides will want to do a session just for themselves before the wedding.
Often times, on the wedding day itself, especially if you’re running a tight timeline or someone has arrived much later than planned, it can be hard to get a few good photos of just the bride and/or groom singularly. A bridal session is a great solution if you don’t have much time on your wedding day; maybe you’re not doing a first look and only have a small amount of time after the ceremony to get couples portraits, family portraits and bridal party portraits.
Another awesome solution if you’re short on time on the wedding day is to do a day-after session with just the bride + groom. No stress, no pressure of being somewhere at a certain time; just you + your spouse, dressed in your Sunday best, taking photos of just the two of you at a gorgeous Colorado location.
Thank you so much to Ashley for having me do her stunning bridal portraits downtown at my favorite Denver hotel, the Four Seasons. Coming up next will be the real deal from Ashley and her now-husband, Brett, from their wedding at the Beaver Creek Lodge. Stay tuned! Thanks for stopping the blog!
