Dallas Bridal Portraits
Gallery of Bridal Portraits in Studio or On Location by Jeff Dietz Photography
With the Dallas Bridal Portrait, we are bringing back the long-held tradition of having a photo shoot before your wedding that focuses on having an amazing experience with your wedding gown that you have dreamed about since you were little. You have thought about what it would be like throughout your life, spent countless hours trying on dresses with your maid of honor and friends, and finally found that perfect dress.
This is an excellent way to celebrate with a fashion inspired, modern bridal photo shoot that is all about you. See some of our portraits below and read more about all the various ways we can create something amazing together.
Classic and timeless black and white photos are a perfect pairing for details during the portraits. As you can see here, we are focusing on a shot that details the veil. Often the veil will hold a lot of significance to the bride as it might be handed down through generations.
Want to be a bit more daring? Of course you do! Bridal portraits can also take place after the wedding. It could be the day after your wedding or even years later. The photograph above was taken in the ocean in South Beach Miami Florida. We had photographed her wedding in Philadelphia and decided that it was too cold to do the bridal portraits there. So we hopped on a plane and went to Miami where they had an apartment. Yes, that is a Vera Wang gown in the ocean. Usually, you are not going to pull that dress out again, so you might as well have fun with it and have artwork that will be on display forever.
We had the pleasure to work with a local Dallas wedding gown designer Dat Nguyen Designs for their winter collection. These photos were taken at the Canals at Las Colinas which made for a perfect European feel for the gowns. If you are having a hard time finding the gown that you love, we have resources that can help you. Dat can also hand design a custom gown for you and even make their gowns rentable for your bridal portraits.
This series of Dallas Bridal Portraits were actually photographed at their wedding reception. The couple discussed how they weren’t really interested in doing the typical portraits where you go outside and wanted to do something new and different. I proposed skipping that as well as some of the typical dancing photos and instead we built a pop-up fashion studio outside of their reception ballroom. We photographed the bride and groom, all of her wedding party, and family and friends in a Vanity Fair style. It turned out perfect and was just what they were looking for.
We are blessed to be able to photograph brides all around the country. These two are photographed lakeside in Kennebunkport Maine. The look of the old barns could also work well in farm areas of McKinney, Fort Worth or lakes like Lake Dallas, Grapevine Lake, and Lake Travis.
Some times we make things out of seemingly nothing and make them look like epic locations. The key is knowing how to control light. Would you know that this photograph was taken in the parking lot of a Hobby Lobby? Well, it was. Changing the camera angle and using beautiful lighting on our bride, I was able to create this awesome photograph.
We are always looking for new and interesting ideas for where we can take photos. Often that comes from a personal connection that the bride or groom has or a passion they enjoy. The photo to the top right is taken in a local park where the couple enjoys taking walks together. The top left photo is taken inside of a crab shack near the lake in Maine.
This is another photo in the photoshoot we did with the local Dallas wedding gown designer. I love the lace in these dresses. This dress would work well as a reception dress or a gown specifically for your bridal portraits. Photographed at the Mandalay Canal Walk at Las Colinas.
When you are thinking about your dress for your Dallas Bridal Portraits, think outside the box and don’t be afraid to be epic. This dress is definitely epic. I love the way the dress flowed as you walk with the detachable cape with layers of fabric at the bottom. With a dress like this, getting a lower angle and giving the dress a toss made it come alive.
We got up extra early for this stunning photo by the lake during the misty morning. The night before it had rained and they were calling for warmer weather the next day, I knew it would make for the perfect time to get some awesome fog. The key is you have to be willing to get there before the sun even rises so as soon as it does you will get this amazing lighting conditions.
Elegance and class. These two photos say it all for me. Simple, yet amazing and timeless. Beautiful lighting and just the right expression. We also have plenty of Dallas florists that we can connect you with if you would like to add that into your session.
A fun group photo from all of the girls that took part in our Dallas Designer Gown photo shoot that we did in Las Colinas. You can imagine a photo like this with your bridesmaids or maybe you even want to get together with some other friend who is also getting married. I love the European charm of the Mandalay Walk. It reminds me of my time in Venice, Italy.
Stunning beaded wedding dress with the lovely collar and bracelet that send this look to the next level. This is a vintage wedding gown that she found specific for her bridal session.
