Camp Lucy – Ian’s Chapel Bridal Portraits – Courtney

Hello Gorgeous Courtney!!  I’m so excited that now she’s a MRS. I can share her stunning Camp Lucy Bridal Portrait session!  This Houston-based bride met me in the newly re-designed bridal cottage at Ian’s Chapel and we spent the afternoon exploring the property she and Ryan got married at this past Saturday.  Camp Lucy is such a unique and gorgeous Hill Country (Dripping Springs) venue and the structures that were brought over from Vietnam lend itself to stunning backdrops!  Add to that a sunny, warm spring day, a colorful bouquet by the talented Whim Florals team….oh, and the beautiful bride….it was a perfect afternoon! Bridal portrait sessions not only allow us plenty of time to get photos of the bride, but it also provides a great opportunity to try a certain hairstyle, lip color, earrings and see how you felt.  On Courtney’s wedding day this past weekend, it was fun to see the small changes made after this session….she kept the earrings, pulled the hair back just a tad bit more, and tightened up the bouquet.  Congratulations Ryan & Courtney – thank you to your amazing family and friends for being wonderful to work with!  Wedding photos coming to the blog soon….until then, catch some sneak peeks on my Instagram (@jessicafreyphotography)   Now booking select dates for Fall 2017 and all of 2018!

Mother of the Bride dress – Mother of the Groom dress

Mother of the Bride dress – Mother of the Groom dress

Happy Mother’s Day!!  Thinking of my own mom (and planning my wedding 13 years ago) and hoping to provide some inspiration, I’ve pulled together a ton of REAL Mother of the Bride and Mother of the Groom dress photos!  The beautiful women below were all gorgeous and it was an honor to capture this special time in their lives as they celebrated their daughters and sons getting married! Here’s my quick advice (after 10 years of photographing weddings!) when looking for a Mother of the Bride or Mother of the Groom dress: Be comfortable!  Get your hair and makeup done! You’ll photograph better if you’re not worried about your dress/hair/makeup! Be yourself.  (but dress up a bit more than usual!! The two times my own mom has worn a dress is my wedding and my brother’s wedding!) Consult the bride to help determine the appropriate length/color scheme that fits with the formality of the wedding day and location! (Please stay away from white, off/white or anything that may detract from the bride!) It’s customary for the Mother of the Bride to choose her color/dress first, but tradition seem to be moving away from that.  If you’re in contact with each other, maybe make a day of it and go dress shopping together (or at least have a conversation)! Start shopping at least 6 months prior to the wedding to give you time for stress-free alterations or fittings.  Invest in alterations so this once in a lifetime dress fits you perfectly for photos that will last forever! “My mom wanted something that didn’t look like a traditional mother of the bride dress,...
