Maddie’s Bridal Portrait Session
The Ballantyne

Bridal portrait sessions are unlike any other day in a bride’s engagement year.  We like to schedule these anywhere from 2-4 weeks before the big day.  We know that last month before the wedding is crazy beyond crazy and the tensions tend to run a bit high. But bridal portrait day is different. For just 2 hours, she stops making decisions.

She stops clutching that binder or phone she’s constantly using to plan every detail of the big day ahead.She stops worrying about everyone else’s needs.

She finally slows down long enough to ***feel***like a bride.

She gets to wear that gown she fell in love with in the store- and not just for a few minutes but a full 2 hours.

She gets a trial run of her beautiful wedding day hair/makeup and to slip on those amazing heels she searched high and low for.

This day is all about her.

And we are the lucky ones who get to capture it.  Enjoy Maddie’s bridal session at the newly renovated (and gorgeous!!) Ballantyne Hotel. She is now officially Mrs. Ludwick so we an release her beautiful blog post.  Enjoy!

Thanks to the Lindsey at Be Pretty for glamming our girl up and for this stunning gown by Hayley Paige from Hayden Olivia Bridal!
