In early February, I had the opportunity to meet Danielle at her mother for Danielle’s bridal portraits at Highgrove Estate in Fuquay-Varina, NC. Surprisingly, the weather was mild for February, especially considering the cold and snowy weather we had recently.
Danielle’s dress was from David’s Bridal, and she opted to add some modifications to it to make it exactly what she wanted. My favorite part of the dress were the off the shoulder sleeves- it really was a great idea to modify that part of the dress!
We started off the session in the blue room at Highgrove Estate, and as you can see, we got off to an incredible start! This is my favorite room in the venue because of the wall of mirrors and crystal chandelier. It really is gorgeous!
Danielle settled right into the session! It was so nice meeting and talking with her and her mom! Flowers on Broad Street provided a beautiful mockup of Danielle’s wedding day bouquet that complemented her dress perfectly! Later, we moved on to the spiral stairwell area and took some pictures underneath the crystal chandelier and French blue settee. These were some of my favorite shots of the entire day! We also went outside for a bit and the neutral winter light really showed off for us! We got some shots of Danielle twirling in her dress, and they are stunning!
Brides, I seriously cannot recommend having a bridal portrait session enough! You get to enjoy that stunning bridal gown a little bit longer, you get to see how your hair and makeup look in photographs, and you get to see a mockup of your bouquet. It gives you a chance to enjoy this fleeting of being a bride even more, and make any changes or adjustments needed to your bridal look prior to the big day!
