I love a classic bridal portrait. There is a huge difference between a classic portrait and a traditional portrait. A classic portrait reminds me of the classic images of Audrey Hepburn. It's all about the posing, the lighting, and it's timeless. I've seen a lot of fads come and go over my years as a wedding photographer in the Quad Cities, but a classic bridal portrait stands the test of time and never goes out of style.
A traditional image is simply a bride at the altar, looking at the camera and smiling.
Here are a few classic bridal portraits from Stephanie and Ian's wedding on June 20th.
