Fort Monroe Bridal Portraits | Grace

 All-over lace long sleeved wedding dress

Grace Kelly. That's the name that kept popping into my head as I shot Grace's bridal portrait sessions - and funny enough, they even have the same first name! Grace met me at Fort Monroe in Hampton on a gorgeous fall day for bridal portraits just one week before her wedding, and when she stepped out of the car she took my breath away. Elegant and covered in lace from head to toe, her dress was not only absolutely stunning, it was perfect for her sense of style and class.

From walking down steps of historic buildings to finding little white buildings and huge trees, this bridal portrait session was one of my favorites. Grace is beautiful on the outside, but the way she carries herself speaks volumes to her inner beauty as well. She is kind, gentle, and has the most hilarious sense of humor that kept popping out here and there as I tried to make her laugh - and she was much better at that than me! Oh what a beautiful day and what a beautiful bride. Click here to see her beautiful wedding day!
