Beautiful bridal portraits can be shot indoors or outside, but if you have the chance to pose in natural light, go for it! Choose a shady area for the most flattering photos, and avoid standing in direct sunlight. Areas with bright light will cause you to squint your eyes and wash out your skin. When in doubt, defer to your photographer with any lighting concerns you may have. Camera settings can be adjusted to accommodate any kind of light, so trust that your photographer can take a winning portrait no matter if you're in a studio or in the great outdoors.
