Bridal Portrait Session | Atlanta History Center | The Swan House

So excited that I can finally share these images with you all!

With only two weeks away from saying, "I do," we set out for the Swan House to photograph Catherine's bridal portrait session.  Southern Weddings explains that the history of the bridal portrait originated in Europe with families commissioning a bridal portrait painting to commemorate the special occasion. Back then, people didn't hire wedding photographers and photos were often taken before the wedding day.  Through the years, its trickled down and became a tradition of Southern Debutantes whose photo would be displayed at the wedding near the guest book and then hung in her parents' home.  Now, it's become a great way to have a hair and make up trial and be more comfortable in front of the camera before the big day in addition to being one more thing I love about the South.
