A Case for Bridal Portraits: Claire's Bridals by Oakstream Photography

By Tessa Woolf May 18, 2011

Oh, Claire. How I adore your auburn hair, your champagne-hued Ines Di Santo gown, and your sweet lace wrap.

Brides, if you're on the fence about whether or not you should have bridal portraits taken (aka "bridals"), feast your eyes on the loveliness that are these images by Alisha Ekstrom of Oakstream Photography. Utah bride Claire looks absolutely radiant in a couture bridal gown from Alta Moda Bridal in Salt Lake City, paired with a crocheted lace wrap handmade by her mother.

I think it's pretty clear which side of the fence you should land on, eh?

No offense to the grooms out there (we love you guys!), but sometimes a girl, er bride, just needs to shine on her own. And bridal portriats are the perfect way to capture your moment in the spotlight.

Thank you Alisha for sharing these bridals!
