Bridal portraits are my favorite southern tradition!  Every bride deserves an excuse to put on her stunning gown and feel beautiful for a day!  After all, you pay a lot of money for that gown so you might as well extend the amount of time you get to wear it!  I also highly recommend using your bridal portraits as a trial run for your hair, makeup and even bouquet!  It is a great way to see how it will all come together before the wedding and you can make adjustments as needed!  Today I am sharing a gorgeous bridal portrait at the stunning Ivy Rose Barn in Rocky Mount, VA.  I have said it before but I will say it again…Give me a white wall and I am pushed creatively to make something beautiful out of it.  The gorgeous white Ivy Rose Barn gave me a stunning backdrop with beautiful light to create some images that are now a favorite!
