We finally get to share Alyssa’s Bridal Portraits! Been holding off on this post since early January. We ventured to the McNay Art Museum in San Antonio for their varied grounds and scenery. The place was just amazing to photograph at because we never had to move more than 100 yards for all of our photographs. Places like the McNay are great for stimulating the senses with Contemporary Artwork around the grounds.
We have to thank Alyssa and Kevin’s Moms for being great assistants and for Leena at Singar Studios for her excellent makeup work.
We love to photograph bridal portraits because we get the chance to work one on one with bride before the big day. We also get the chance to test out makeup and hair applications with the same equipment that we will be using on the wedding day. We have had numerous brides make small changes to maximize their look after seeing their bridal portraits. Make sure you schedule your bridal portrait with enough time ahead of the wedding day. We recommend at least 6 weeks.
For those that might ask, we mainly used an Einstein 640 into a 47 inch octobox either in front or behind of Alyssa. Tried to keep the ambient close for a softer feel. If you have more specific lighting questions, let us know in the comments.
Congratulations Again Alyssa and Kevin!
