Bridal portraits are absolutely some of our favorite sessions, and it’s SO HARD for us to contain our excitement when we get a beautiful one in…..because we have to wait until our couple says “I Do” to share the pictures with you all. Since they’re supposed to be kept a secret (you know, no seeing the bride in her wedding dress before the big day bit!), we’re always so giddy to post portraits of some quality one-on-one time with our beautiful brides. Before the craziness of the wedding day, before the butterflies and the hair and make-up, we really just love capturing the true beauty of our soon to be brides in really fun, amazing ways. Philip + Anna (our superb Southeast husband + wife duo), did just that with Courtney (of Courtney + Nic!). The lovely Courtney did a sort of “dress” rehearsal (pun intended) around Atlanta, and we are head over heels in love with these super elegant portraits (not to mention, her dress is GOR-GEOUS.) Here are just a few of our favorites and congratulations, Courtney and Nic! We’re so happy you’re part of our OLAS family! xox

So we’ve heard rumors that one of our fave stores, Anthropologie, is starting a new wedding line…and if we didn’t know any better, we’d think this was their feature shoot. But, it’s not. It’s a magical, beautiful bridal session from our beyond talented Southeast team. Katelyn and her now hubby Hayes just recently tied the knot (check out their wedding slideshow here), so we had to keep these secret for a little while. And believe us, it was hard keeping these from you guys! These are just some of the most phenomenally gorgeous bridal shots we’ve ever seen and are so unique….from Katelyn’s adorable cowgirl boots to the stunning locations to an homage to their favorite football team, we think you’ll agree just how great these are. There are over 30 images here, but believe me, I could have easily added 30 more! Enjoy!
The light and the tin siding just add such a vintage feel to these shots. Even an old tire adds to it’s beauty.
I love the mixture of sweet Katelyn against such an industrial looking wall. So cool!
Now on to a little less industrial, little more gorgeous field and old, amazing wooden fence…
Just look at this amazing old truck the team found…simply wonderful and makes for some gorgeous, gorgeous shots!
I really like the richness of the wood in the background of the picture, and Katelyn just looks so, so pretty!
The wide-angle on this picture gives it such a feeling of grandeur. We love!
Now for some of my faves! An old barn, a beautiful bride-to-be, some flowers and cowgirl boots?? Could these BE more perfect??
And the black and white gives it such a rustic feel.
LOVE this one! Those cowgirl boots are so amazing, especially paired with Katelyn’s beautiful dress.
Oh, light, you are so perfect.
And these shots of Katelyn on the porch are just so sweet and beautiful. She made our job so easy!
Those boots were definitely made for walkin’…
So now comes the homage to their favorite football team….recognize the logo??
That would be Clemson University in South Carolina! And how great is that red tractor??
So adorable These were definitely a surprise for Hayes!
And finally a shot with Katelyn and her dad. We love this one, and we love you too, Katelyn! Thanks for spending the day with (once like a spark) and for making our jobs so fun and easy Congratulations!!Read More
Emily just got married this past weekend, so we had to keep this GORGEOUS bridal portraits under wraps for a while. Emily spent the day with our awesome Southeast team to capture some seriously beautiful pictures in her wedding dress. We love how carefree and happy Emily looks, and we know that she rocked this dress at her wedding. We think that she probably looked even more radiant on her big day (if that’s even possible!), but these shots are pretty phenomenal, if we do say so ourselves.
Congratulations, Emily, and thanks for letting (oncelikeaspark) be a small part of this wonderful time in your life!
So now, take a look at some of our favorites!
Love how you can just make out the Atlanta skyline in the background:
Beautiful detail on the back of her dress (and a great smile to match!)
Isn’t Emily just stunning?
I LOVE this one. There’s something so…I don’t know what…about it. But it’s amazing.
We cannot stop looking at these STUNNING bridal portraits of Melanie, shot by our fabulous Southeast team! Melanie just got married in mid-August, so we had to keep these secret for a while, but we are so excited to show them to you now! OLAS also shot Melanie and Rorie’s engagement portraits and wedding, so they’re practically part of the family! We LOVE the vintage but really classic feel of these portraits, and the light is absolutely unbelievable. We love the chair that practically mirrors Melanie’s flowers, and has a great vintage vibe to it.
Take a look at some of our faves, and keep an eye out for their wedding pictures in a few weeks!
In color or black and white, these are simply beautiful:
We love the clean lines and light, airy feel of these:
The green of the background really just makes Melanie’s eyes pop with color!
Stunning, stunning, stunning. Congratulations, Melanie (and Rorie) and thanks for letting (oncelikeaspark) be such a big part of this amazing time in your life!
