“I’m not from around here.” Yes, most of you know I’m originally from Texas, and in Texas (and the South in general), one of the big traditions is to have a bridal portrait. Yes, a session where the bride dresses up in her wedding gown–usually sometime before the wedding–and has pictures taken. The photos are sometimes displayed at the reception venue. I, of course, had a bridal session–and that photo is still hanging in our room.
But things are different in “the North.” I haven’t found quite the demand for bridal portraits here–(but they’re so much fun–what are you waiting for?). Of course, we do have cookie tables…but that’s for another post.
Anyway, Amy is actually from the Pittsburgh area but has been living in “the South” for a couple of years and, hence, knows all about the bridal portrait craze. So, last Friday we met up around Heinz Chapel for her portrait. Now, Ian has not seen the dress, and I don’t want to give it all away. So, I can only share a few headshots and one teaser. Just sit tight and you’ll see more in a few weeks!
Can I just say gorgeous?
Amy’s actually holding up part of her dress here as her friends bustle her up.
Now Ian don’t look!
