Bridal Session in Oakland with Julie Cheshire

Uncategorized

Bridal sessions aren’t very common outside of the south but they’re great fun. The bride gets a reason to wear this beautiful and expensive dress more than once and usually show the pictures on the wedding day.

Julie of Julie Cheshire Photography and I spent some time with Rachel the other week at the Mountain View Cemetery in Oakland collecting some really awesome bridal pictures of this fun and feisty bride.


Rachel used to spend a lot of time here to just walk around and think because of the beautiful surroundings and peacefulness of the place. I’m so glad she suggested it because it really was spectacular (and different)!
Check them out!







We then went around the corner to the Morcom Rose Garden to make use of the last moments of daylight.



If you love the idea of wearing your dress more than once but are a bit hesitant about putting on before your big day, consider a trash the dress session. No, you don’t really have to trash your dress but it’s an awesome opportunity to wear that gown again and get some unique pictures without much worry of the dress getting a little dirty. These are great for just the bride or the bride with her new hubby!

After all there is something about a wedding-gown prettier than in any other gown in the world. ~Douglas William Jerrold
