Dana did bridal portraits for me prior to the wedding. I wasn't sure that I wanted to do them, but my friends back east encouraged me to do bridal portraits because it's a great way to get beautiful pictures on a more relaxed day, know that the weather worked and then see the photos to know what hair/make-up/visual aspects you might change for the big day. The pictures turned out absolutely incredible and I'm so happy I did them, but honestly, the experience was worth the cost alone. It was SO MUCH FUN to do a dress rehearsal and then go shoot fun photos before the wedding on a day with no pressure - I was smiling for hours after because it was such a blast, without having even seen the photos. I had nothing else to worry about (like I will on the wedding day) and no time commitments so we could catch the light without a schedule concern. Dana was particularly awesome because she scouted and found a spot that worked perfectly for my taste and personality. I didn't really know what I wanted and was not very specific, but knew I wanted something outside and maybe a landscape. Dana found the most incredible place (I'm absolutely sure of it) with a running river and mountain scene that even looked like Virginia, where I'm from, which is pretty much impossible to capture all at the same time in Colorado. She also made me feel so pretty - which made for really fun photos to last a lifetime!
