Taking advantage of a bridal portrait session with your photographer before the wedding is a great idea on so many levels.  First, you end up with gorgeous portraits, obvi.  But even more important, you get another opportunity to work with your photographer on what you like best.  Your photographer will also gain insight into your personality and how long it may take to warm to the camera.  You don’t have to choose a wedding location, pick some place magical.  Go for an editorial vibe you may not be able to achieve on the big day.  A wedding day is a flurry of carefully timed activities and emotion.  Though you’ll have time for a few portraits, there won’t be as much as a bridal session would offer.  Photography aside, it’s also a great opportunity to test your hair, makeup and bouquet not just for aesthetics, but for longevity.  Keep in mind all of these bridal portrait elements are likely not to be included in your vendor packages, so be prepared to pay a little extra, but also build relationships and get an album of pretty to last a life time!  NOTE: if you decide on an outdoor location, there is a chance the hem of your dress may get a little dirty.  But don’t worry, it probably won’t be noticeable as you walk down the aisle because the guests will be looking at your glowing face, not your hem.  If this doesn’t easy your worries, be sure there is time (and money) to have it cleaned before the wedding.  Or, even more fun, do your portraits after the wedding and go for a totally Vouge worthy shot in the waves or climbing a tree.
