// Our Wedding : Bridals




I figured I'd start off the ~wedding photos with a few bridal portraits. We (Sarah from Arrow and Apple, and Sara Bee [my MUA]) shot these in East Nashville the Saturday before the wedding. I'm so glad we did that because honestly, with the weather and craziness that was our actual wedding day, I don't think we would've gotten nearly the photos we did. Basically I should rename this post "The Many Faces of Kaelah". Spoiler alert: there's only one! haha I will be the first to admit I feel like I freeze up immediately in front of the camera (if it's not Mike manning it) and I literally make one face. Over and over and over. With one pose. (I guess I do that anyway) So here's the proof of that haha! I'll probably get crap for not smiling with my teeth (what is the infatuation with that?!), but I'm really happy with these. I felt pretty and comfortable, despite being a bit awkward at first. 

We decided to share some bridals, bride + groom portraits, and a handful of photos from the actual wedding (wedding party, dancing, details), but keep a good portion of them just for us. That way we can share some and then keep some of them special for our wedding book. There are some that officially make up our favorite photos ever.








I'll share the bride + groom portraits soon. They're my favorites of the whole bunch, I think! (Btw, I promise not to string wedding posts out into infinity. I'll get 'em over and done with!)

  4. GORGEOUS dress! You look beautiful :) I love the idea of taking these kinds of shots before the wedding. Not only do you get to wear the dress more than once, but being able to spend the whole day concentrating on just photos must have been really nice! Not to mention a lot less stressful on your actual wedding day. Thanks for sharing :)

  7. Before shots are the best idea ever!!! When i shot the few weddings that i did, doing before shots allowed the bride to relax and have fun with taking pictures.

    You look so beautiful!!! ILOVE your dress & that you are proudly displaying your ink too. I understand the uncomfortableness of being in front of the camera, so much easier to be behind it, no? And i hate smiling in pictures myself too! Your guys's pictures turned out awesome.I personally think that face you make is cute. It comes across as YOU and not some posed magazine shoot. Great pictures..... although the zombie one is still my favorite hahaha.

  8. YOu looked beautiful! I'm such a huge fan of the cardigan. I'm one of those people who is always cold, so I may have to steal your idea whenever the big day comes (not anytime soon ;D). I love your bouquet! I feel it really ties everything together, simple but sweet!

  22. Kaelah, I am the EXACT same way with smiling. Yeah, I got braces and my teeth are straight, but I'm not "that" girl to smile for the camera. I do the exact same face that you do in most of your photos (and yes I said it most, you have more emotion in your face than you think you do!), and you know what? That's okay. No one has to smile the exact same way as another person and if one is comfortable with smiling a certain way, than so be it.

    Besides, us ladies are more prettier when we show our face and not our blinding, white teeth anyhow. ;]
