We are in love with these couple portraits shot in Park City, Utah. Typically known as a “formal session”, these are used for the couples to have more formal portraits either before or after their wedding day. This is very much an optional thing. Usually added on and planned ahead of time when they realize there is not enough time on their big day.
Some events have packed schedules with things happening on the hour. A couple should not be cut short of the intimate memory of taking portraits together. For example, sunset photos are done in a specific window of time. It is hard to go early or later from when the sun starts setting. If this is important for you, a formal session will ensure you do not miss any events with your guests and have those sunset portraits on lock.
If a formal session is something you are interested in, I recommend talking to your wedding photographer to learn their offerings. Also refer to your make-up artist, hairstylist, and florist. The bride often uses this time to do a hair, make-up, bouquet trial. A bride hack if you didn’t already know it! If you are still unsure, keeping scrolling to get inspired by these wedding couple portraits done for Kylie and Mitch.
