Katie’s Bridal Portraits | Madison, VA

October 14, 2019

Kicking off the week with a new blog post!  I’ve been looking forward to sharing these photos for a while now.  Last month, I met Katie at Renback Barn down in Madison for a bridal portrait session.  Renback is a new venue, but gosh is it amazing!  Getting to photograph there was such a dream.  2020 couples: I highly recommend visiting because you will fall in love with the amazing mountain views.  Plus, the owners are incredibly nice and treat you like family!  I cannot wait to see how their venue grows in the next year!

Bridal portrait sessions are a great way to test your “bridal look” before the wedding to ensure you love your hair and makeup, and make sure no final dress alterations are needed before the big day.  Plus, if you have a busy wedding day schedule, brides won’t have to worry about not having much individual portrait time because they will already have a full gallery of portraits.  Lastly, bridal sessions give the bride another chance to get more comfortable in front of the camera and wear that beautiful dress!

Back to this session- these are some of my (many) favorites from a beautiful session!  Katie’s dress is probably my favorite dress I have ever photographed.  It was 100% made for her!  All the heart eyes for that beautiful lace!

Renback’s getting ready suite is gorgeous!

Katie is literally the most stunning bride!
