Bridal Portraits

This Southern tradition has made its way into the mainstream. Brides are scheduling bridal portrait sessions in their dresses before the wedding day or allotting time on the day of to take formal portraits of themselves. "You're spending all this time and effort on your look and it's nice to document it properly," says photographer Denise Chastain of Denise Chastain Photography. Another twist? Formal couple portraits, which show posed, traditionally styled shots of the couple. These photos from the wedding of model Lauren Bush and her husband, David Lauren, were featured in Vogue.
