my bridal portraits

I realized the other day that after over a year and a half, I never posted my bridal portraits on Facebook or my blog. Now I'm sure some of you guys couldn't care less about these, but these were my favorite pictures between our engagements and wedding photos, so I definitely want to have them documented here to be able to look back on them!

If you aren't familiar with bridal portraits, I believe it is a southern tradition to have photos taken in your dress a few months prior to the wedding. If you are keeping your dress a secret, you don't let anyone see these photos until you reveal one or two large prints at your wedding. It is a good way to get some great pictures of you in your dress without taking time away from the wedding and reception.

I posted this photo a couple weeks ago. This is the day we found the dress! It was a sample sale dress at Bliss Bridal Salon in Fort Worth. (I also sold this dress a few weeks before the wedding. Email me if you want to know more!)

My photos were taken on some private property in Farmers Branch. Our photographer was The Three and they did a great job! They have really great  prices and all of our pictures came out looking great. If you need a wedding or family photographer and are interested, let me know and I'd be happy to share our experience!

We had this one made into a canvas and displayed at our reception. It's now hanging in the guest room!

So there is an overload of photos of me. Sorry!

Do you have special photos that you cherish? Please share!


  1. These are amazing. Just gorgeous!! You look stunning and your bouquet is so pretty!

  2. So pretty! I didn't know you went to Bliss, I love those ladies a ton!! We've become friends since I got my dress there :) What's this about selling your dress? I purchased a different before finding my actual dress at Bliss and I've been wanting to get rid of it for 5 years! Ahh!
