It can be intimidating to be the sole subject of a portrait session, especially if you’re not used to being in front of the camera. That was the case for Chere during her bridal portrait before she was able to overcome it.
Born in New Bern. Raised in New Bern. Lives and works in New Bern. Wedding in… not New Bern? Brittany decided on an out of town wedding but still wanted her hometown represented in her photos, thus the decision to hold her bridal portrait at Tryon Palace in, you guessed it, New Bern, NC. She says, “I chose to have my bridal portraits there because I loved the historical aspects that the palace offers and the beautiful gardens!”
If we came up with creative names for each of our real shoots, this one would be called something like “The Essence of the Southern Bride.” Lynley, today’s bride, looks like the ideal Southern bride and she picked the perfect venue to match. This was shot at a private residence along the Neuse River just outside of New Bern and featured a riverfront view, trees with Spanish moss, and an adorable golden retriever.
Sometimes you just have to suck it up and do your shoot in the cold. That’s what Sami faced for her bridal portrait at Tryon Palace in New Bern, NC.
Spring had just sprung and the late afternoon air was a perfect temperature… and then it got dark. When the light left, so did the warmth. Sami was a trooper though and toughed through it (with the help of her father’s jacket).
