I did it and LOVED them it was fun and i got to dress up pretty and would have been able to wear my dress twice ( i hated the dress i had and switched at last minute). Even tho I hated my dress I loved the pictures and had a blast. My bridal shoot was free with my photo package tho

I didn’t do one, but now I kind of wish that I had. My photographer was great for the wedding, but I don’t have any pictures of just me in my dress.

Just bear in mind that the photographer is only part of the cost of the session. You would still have to do hair/makeup, etc.,  and if you plan to hire someone for that you will need to factor that cost in.

You dont have to pay for makeup and hair for the bridal shoot it can be a more relaxed session doesnt have to be a picture perfect match to your wedding day look

I would do it. I wish I had, as I was disappointed in my wedding photos for the reason that she only took a few of just me and none of them even turned out. So now I don’t even have a bridal portrait.

I would do it we had photos done before and if we hadn’t do e that there are a lot of pictures we would have missed by running out of time and light

I had the option to do one, but I’ll be frank: the idea of wearing my gorgeous dress and getting all dolled up before the actual wedding day just felt SO wrong to me! Additionally, on your wedding day, you have a glow that you’ll never have again. If you’re interested in images of just yourself in your lovely dress, get ready earlier on your actual day–that’s what I did! I had about an hour and a half with the photographer to shoot pictures of me. But, the idea of a wedding is to celebrate a love between two people and I felt very narcissistic! I loved the shots with my husband the most!
