Why Do Bridal Portraits Take An Hour?

Updated: Oct 30, 2023

Hey there, lovely readers! I'm Leah, the one woman show at Leah Maree Creations, your friendly neighborhood wedding videographer. Today, let's dive into a question that's been on many minds: Why do bridal portraits/filming take a whole hour?

👰 It's Not Just About the Click of a Camera

You see, bridal portraits aren't just about getting a bit of footage and calling it a day. They're about capturing your beauty, your essence, and the sheer joy of your wedding day. I want those parts of the film to tell your unique story, and that takes a little extra time. 🎬✨

🍾 Pop, Fizz, Clink – The Champagne Trick!

One of my favorite secrets to break the ice and keep things lively is bringing along a bottle of Champagne. 🍾🥂 Now, I'm not saying we should chug the whole thing, but a well-timed pop of the cork, a playful toast, and some candid laughter can work wonders.

💃 Dance It Out!

Why stand around when you can dance? Crank up your favorite tunes, and let loose a little! I've seen some incredible, spontaneous dance moves emerge during bridal portraits. It's all about having fun and letting your personality shine through.

📷 Capture the Candid Moments

Sure, posed shots are great, but the candid moments are often the ones that truly capture your personality. Whisper sweet nothings, share a silly joke, or just be yourselves. Those in-between moments are pure magic.

🌄 Change Up the Scenery

Sometimes, all it takes is a change of scenery to reenergize the shoot. Let's explore different spots at your venue – a scenic garden, a cozy corner, or a grand staircase. Fresh backdrops can make the photos feel like an adventure.

🤣 Embrace the Oops Moments

Lastly, don't be afraid to embrace the "oops" moments. A gust of wind tousling your hair or a veil mishap can lead to some of the most charming and memorable shots.

So, there you have it, folks! Bridal portraits might take a bit of time, but with a dash of Champagne, a sprinkle of laughter, and a lot of genuine moments, we'll create stunning memories that are well worth it.

Cheers to love, laughter, and memorable bridal film footage!

Leah 🥂✨
