rustic bridal portraits

I’ve always believed that setting up a little inspiration shoot for your bridal portraits is an excellent idea! It’s so much more fun this way and allows you to have some creative play. When choosing what sort of theme you want to go with for your bridal portraits you don’t necessarily have to style it just like your wedding, but definitely choose something that you love!

From Nikki Santerre Photography: “Kathleen has always been a southern girl at heart. She adores small town charm, plantation life with her horses, and Southern traditions. When we discussed a theme for her bridal portraits, we focused on these elements that are true to Kathleen’s heart and incorporated wildflowers, lace and burlap trimmed mason jars, hay bales, and vintage elements.”
