I always love getting to take bridal portraits before a wedding. The bride in her wedding dress with her flowers are always a favorite subject for me. This southern tradition is really great idea, because of the rush of the wedding day itself, I feel lucky to get a few portraits of the bride by herself. It is great to have some time to make sure a wedding dress is arranged perfectly, and pose and set up shots without the stress of the wedding day. Gaby and Edwin got married last weekend in a private church ceremony at San Fernando Cathedral. I’m finally able to post some of these beautiful bridal portraits from Mission from earlier this month. It was the perfect morning for a bridal session. Mission San Jose was beautiful at sunrise. I got to visit with her mom we had a great time during the session.
I started out the portraits of Gaby on the bridge over the mill stream. I loved the shots of Gaby on the bridge with this Mission behind her. She looked so beautiful with her dress flowing out around her. Next, we were able to take some portraits in front of the massive Spanish style doors. These are one of the best architectural details at the Mission. We tried to wait for the sun to come out but having the mission backlight from the moring light with clouds was just the perfect way to have photos done. We got all the details in the clouds and the portraits ended up looking very dramatic. Finally, we got to photograph in my favorite spot at the mission, the arches. we finished up hitting a few more spots around before it got too hot.
I am so grateful to have got to spend the day with Gaby and her mother. I cannot wait to show you the beautiful wedding day images coming up next!
