with Bridal Portraits



A behind the scenes shoot

There is a misconception that storytelling means you just show up, hang back, and hope the couple knows what to do in front of the camera. And while most of a wedding day is purely documenting what is unfolding in front of you, bridal portraits are often the exception.

Storytelling is a balancing act between preparing, being present, offering encouragement, direction, being creative, and ultimately unveiling a story in your unique way.

In this behind the scenes look at one of my shoots, I show you how to strike a balance between posing and storytelling while shooting some of the most anticipated photos in a gallery – the bridal portraits. You'll learn how something as simple as planning ahead and using a wide range of lenses can create emotional and dynamic images.

I’m no stranger to these emotions. Through painful trial and error, I eventually learned how to set myself up for success under any conditions. Planning ahead and creating multiple backup options may sound simple, or even cliche, but it works.

I want to share my most helpful tips, strategies, techniques, and principles for executing bridal portraits consistently and creatively.

In the midst of dynamic timelines and unpredictable situations, I as the photographer want to make sure that these highly anticipated photos are a highlight. The more you are able to plan and think through everything ahead of time, the more you will be able to perform at a level that allows your couples to shine in any situation.

Do you ever feel like…

You crack under pressure when timelines are rushed and you don’t have any time for portraits

You revert back to the same old tired poses rather than expressing real creativity on a wedding day

You’re disappointed with the quality of your bridal portraits because you know your couples wanted more from those moments

Sometimes just watching someone shoot can be the most educational experience.

You've Sold Me Already

Once you have finished this course, I can guarantee that you will have the confidence to create stunning portraits on any wedding day.

You will know how to break out of the tired old poses you always revert to when time is limited and instead create dynamic and emotional images in any situation.

Taking good pictures under pressure and in limited time is possible if you plan ahead, know your gear, and pay attention to the details. The challenge of turning the shortest moments of a wedding day into some of the most significant images can be extremely daunting.

Once you learn how to do it well, however, the very same sources of anxiety or distraction that used to paralyze you can become the unexpected inspiration for some of your most creative work.

I can't believe how eye opening it is to view a bridal session photoshoot as it is happening.

As usual, the Immersed team does an incredible job by approaching photography education as a mindset shift.

This course is packed with so many HUGE takeaways- I’m completely blown away.

These new courses are so incredibly engaging and thorough. Not only are you watching Anni do her thing (that in itself will set your soul on fire), she’s explaining her shots, creative intention and GEAR during each moment of the shoot.

It’s the most valuable thing I got from the foundational storytelling course, and it continues into these mini courses. So grateful for the educational content that makes space for things to be done differently and intentionally (it’s difficult to find in the internet trend era!).

Anni's Storytelling with Bridal Portraits mini course is so packed with details and ideas that “mini” is not even an accurate word. I can't wait to go out and practice what I learned!


You won’t regret it.
