My Favorite Bridal Photos of 2016

When I look at these photographs, I can almost feel the warm sunshine on my skin and the wind blowing through the trees. The laughter and the joy and the sheer anticipation of what's to come. I absolutely love bridal sessions because it's one of the very first time a bride truly feels like a bride. She's in her dress with her makeup perfectly applied. She's holding her gorgeous bouquet. And when she takes deep breath and looks straight into the camera, she knows that it's just a matter of days or weeks until this will all be real and she'll finally be married.

While not all of my brides opt to take advantage of a bridal session, I photographed a handful of gorgeous bridals last year, and I wanted to take a minute today to share my absolute favorites from each session.
