Sienna’s Tamory Hall Bridal Portraits

When Sienna and her mom asked me if I could photograph bridal portraits at Tamory Hall about a month before her wedding, I jumped at the chance! (And this means I’ve had to keep these secret from everyone and have been DYING to share these beautiful portraits!) ⁠

Bridal portraits are a bit of a southern tradition, but I love love LOVE when my brides do them! It’s a great opportunity to photograph the bride in her dress before the wedding day, but without all the stress or added pressure of a schedule. And that means I can get TONS of gorgeous portraits of the bride! 😍⁠

Another added perk is you get an opportunity to try out your hair and makeup, and see what it looks like in final photos! We know lots of brides do a hair and makeup trial, and many of them pair that up with their engagement session, but I think doing it for a bridal session is even better! Sienna looks so stunning and glamorous!⁠

We meet at Tamory Hall for her bridal session, the same location her wedding was held at.  I love this venue because of all the amazing window light and the urban loft vibes – it is so unique!

Sienna’s gown is simple, elegant, and incredibly classy.  I love everything about it!

Doesn’t she look like she’s straight out of a Kate Spade editorial?

Sienna is very close to her mom and grandmother, so when they asked if they could join for a few portraits, of course I couldn’t say no!  Love love LOVE this one!

Sienna’s gown is by Martina Liana and she found it at Pure Bridal.  Flowers were provided by Shelly Sarver Designs.

Had to grab some photos of the details – the bow, the ring, and allllll the buttons!

One of Sienna’s requests was a few portraits on the stairs at Tamory Hall – and I love how it turned out!
