A Bridal Portrait Session is a chance to do something out of the ordinary that can’t be pulled off on wedding day. It’s also for those who who are unable to do an engagement session or simply do not want one. It’s not a Trash the Dress session, but more like creating art featuring you and your dress unencumbered by the pressures and time restraints of the typical wedding day.
I recently did such a session in Chicago’s Bucktown / Wicker Park neighborhood famous for it’s colorful graffiti walls and various art galleries.
This trendy neighborhood gave us the opportunity to casually stroll its grungy alleys looking for unique bridal portraits. This type of session is also a great opportunity to break out some funky shoes for an urban look.
My previous bridal portrait session in Chicago showed off the skyscrapers, Chicago River and more. You can find that right here. This time around we were going for a very “rock and roll bride” kind of feel and wanted to emphasize the grunge of the city.
We did take a number of “softer images” for this session utilizing some golden brick next to Knead pizza parlor. And yes, we did indulge in some Chicago slices after we were all done!
