Bridal Photoshoot in Studio

Bridals, Photography, StudioKendra HillComment

Business tends to slow down a little for Utah photographers when the weather gets cold outside. I love having my photography studio, Reverie Portrait Studio, in Springville because I have a warm, dry place for my clients to go. Another reason I love having my own photography studio is because I was able to plan Jessica's bridal photoshoot with my sister, Nicole, very quickly.

My cousin, Jessica, was coming up from St. George and we wanted to do a fun styled shoot with her. We spoke with our friends and fellow creatives to collaborate on a bridal photoshoot. @chaysingbeauty and @hair_by_mac85 did the amazing make-up and hair do. As they were doing hair and make-up in the studio, Nicole and I looked at the dress we had, and there was a small problem. We had a fantastic reception dress, but wanted another wedding gown that was gorgeous!

We left the girls getting ready at the studio and called Chad at Sweetheart Bridal. Chad spoke with us and helped us out immediately. We were able to choose an ah-mazing form- fitting beaded gown. We picked up our bouquet from Wright’s Floral Shop on Springville Main Street and we were ready to go!

We began our bridal pictures with a short reception dress. How fun is that? Then you can move and groove at your reception without having a cumbersome (albeit beautiful) dress.


After many playful shots in the short bridal dress, we put on this banging gown from Sweetheart Bridal.


It is so flattering, and the intricate beading sparkled as Jessica moved around the photo studio.


The train has appliques that look like falling leaves, which made the entire ensemble so elegant and perfect for this shoot.


Throughout the whole session, Jessica’s boyfriend Nick took some pictures behind the scenes and enjoyed watching the bridal session. He mentioned multiple times how beautiful Jessica looked. Yup, he’s a keeper!


When we finished, Jessica and Nick left to visit with some friends before coming back to my studio for a very special project. This project is quite involved so it isn’t ready yet, but keep an eye out for it because it is going to be amazing! I’ll give you one hint: The Greatest Showman.
