It is always interesting to see what wedding trends are going on based on where you live. A few wedding photographer friends I have say that bridals are not at all a big thing on the east coast, that they don't do separate shoots from the wedding day for portraits. This makes sense for some people and I know bridals seem "extra" or can make a bride feel like she's putting too much emphasis on herself and not the genuine act of marriage, but I personally love bridal sessions for a number of reasons.
All that being said, here are a few fairly recent bridal sessions, :) The beauty is that there are no rules.
