Chelsea’s bridal portrait session is one of my favorites, for a couple of reasons. First of all, I always love a chance to travel to Charleston, and Lowndes Grove is one of the prettiest historic homes in the city (and that’s saying a lot!) To make things even more interesting, Chelsea came up with a creative way for her groom to be a part of her bridal session… all without him seeing her dress!
Chelsea hid while Ryan got set up in his chair, then she came up behind him for a classically elegant portrait of both of them that they could display at the reception. Ryan didn’t peek, but his face definitely lit up when he heard his bride-to-be coming up behind him. I know he must have been imagining how beautiful she looked and anticipating the day of the big reveal. Can’t wait to share those pictures, either, but in the meantime… enjoy a few frames from their bridal (and “groom-al”) session!
