Top Tips for Bridal Portraits In Sioux Falls, SD


Short on time to fit bridal portraits before your wedding day? That’s 100% fine! Below we will walk through a few ways to fit them in the day of, no time commitment necessary.

You may be asking, what’s are bridal portraits in Sioux Falls, SD? It’s typically a tradition when the bride takes portraits (typically 1-2 months before the wedding) in her full wedding day attire – hair, makeup, jewelry, veil, bouquet, and of course, the dress. It’s a lovely way to commemorate a once-in-a-lifetime experience.

While a session before the big day is ideal and special, day-of bridal portraits are just as gorgeous and are adapted for busy brides. You’ll need to organize your wedding day timeline for a few of these special snaps, but thankfully there are several key moments that make it easy to fit them in. Read on for our favorite ways to capture bridal portraits on the wedding day.

Top Tips for Bridal Portraits In Sioux Falls, SD

#1. Applying your makeup during bridal prep.

Most ladies get their makeup professionally done the day of, but consider applying a swipe of lipstick or blush yourself (or just pose like you are!) Touch-ups in front of the mirror make for stunning getting ready photos.

2. Bring an assistant:

So depending on where we go for the session, you will need help with your dress. You will need help in your dress, help to carry your train & veil to different locations, and help with making you laugh! This session is just of you and that can be a little intimidating. Your engagement session you can focus on your lovely groom but this session it is just you in your dress! So sometimes having that extra familiar face can ease your nerves and they probably know how to make you laugh more than I do! 🙂

If you are not wanting anyone else to see you in your dress I can help as much as I can but I recommend either your mama, a sister, or a CLOSE friend/bridesmaid to come with us. If they are there it also gives me a chance to meet them before the wedding day too which can help me to know someone else on the wedding day. This is usually a fun laid back session resulting in truly beautiful, natural, and unique images!

#3. Near an interesting venue feature.

Once you’re dressed and prepped for the perfect day, get ready for your close up! Whether it’s all about the architectural details, colorful bookcase, or a glam chaise lounge, an interesting nook at your venue can make for a perfect bridal portrait location. Have your photographer scout one out the day of, or make note of locations you like during a walkthrough.
