I've been doing more and more bridal portrait sessions at Southern Oaks lately, and for good reason! There are plenty of great spots to shoot around the grounds, and even inside. This photograph was captured of the bride sitting on the venue's famous moss-covered swing hanging from the large oak tree that compliments the graceful exterior of the stately home (this tree swing is also a must-have shot for many Southern Oaks couples on the wedding day).
And there are other benefits to doing your bridal portrait at Southern Oaks. For instance, facilities are provided for the bride to change into her dress there at the venue if she wishes. And the bride (and those accompanying her) get the same kind of royal treatment that the venue is known for providing during weddings. Lastly, it can be nice to shoot in a more private location like this, away from the general public and not having to worry about random people in the background of the images.
