Creating the Timeless Bridal Portrait

At a recent styled shoot, a colleague of mine, Lauren, had the beautiful idea to bring a crisp white backdrop to use for some Bridal Portraits. I was hesitant at first, but I am now 100% sold. For anyone having a bridal session, I think the option to incorporate a backdrop is a must!

In general I am not a huge backdrop fan. Some love them.

I, however, do not.

For this type of portrait, my mind has been changed, though. These images cut out any background noise, so the viewer is focused on the subject. When I look at these, one word comes to mind… Iconic. These are images I can imagine her granddaughters cherishing someday. They showcase the bridal beauty that she is, and are absolutely timeless in the full sense of that word.

For all my brides, my goal is to capture images of them that translate into timeless. Images that can be passed down to generations to come. And because I believe every woman is iconic in her own right, I want her to feel that when she looks at images of herself.
