Mrs. Jennifer Pate Hardee was married last weekend to Lee Hardee at Afton Villa Gardens in St. Francisville.
It was an amazing wedding day that I can't wait to share.
But one of my favorite aspects of photographing wedding details is getting together weeks before the wedding day and doing bridal photos.
I think I love these not only for the tradition behind it but also because it's unique to southern style weddings.
I've heard folks saying bridals are becoming a thing of the past. I hope not. This tradition sets the stage for brides on their wedding day. It makes them more comfortable in front of the camera and helps the girls know how to prepare all details for their hair and dress. It provides sweet memories with the bride's mom, sisters, maid of honor, or even bridesmaids. And beyond that...it provides time, lighting, and a relaxed atmosphere to get photos like these of Jennifer in the location of her wedding just a few weeks before she was married there.
Thanks for stopping by!
