You all know that we are absolute suckers for a clean white portrait, but this session is a little more adventurous for the modern bride. We love the paired use of hats with some of these looks, making it a little more than the usual bridal portrait while still remaining classic and timeless! We hope you enjoy these various bridal portrait looks!
from the photographer, Brian Smith: “Wedding trends come and go, but the underlying love that binds the celebrations and brings a couple together is timeless. Studio Bridal portraits are a reflection of something timelessly beautiful. At best, they are elegant and simple, but with nuances of chaos and touches of refinement. Much like life and love, they reflect something perfectly imperfect. 100 years from now, the studio bridal portrait will wear as well as a Rembrandt. It will stand the trends of time and serve as an ode to the beauty of the classic bride. This shoot featured 4 distinct dresses from a gown boutique in downtown Charleston, SC and 4 different models. The goal was cohesiveness with uniqueness, all shot on the timeless medium of film. The project was divided into two distinct sets; a soft and pale/earth toned backdrop with minimalist florals and a touch of chaos in the torn paper, the other a classic grey backdrop shot in black and white. The end product is a classically beautiful set of portraits with a touch of grain and grit.”
