I always love getting to take bridal portraits before a wedding. The bride in her wedding dress with her flowers is always a favorite subject for me. This southern tradition is 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.

I started out the portraits of Gaby on the bridge with this Mission behind her are my favorite. 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. We tried to wait for the sun to come out but having the mission backlight from the morning light with clouds was just the perfect way to have photos done. 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!
