Bridal portraits often double as an announcement to let your friends and family know that you’re going to soon tie the knot, as well as an introduction to who you are as a couple. We love how Grace and Kenny had their bridal portraits done at home – no rules and at no cost! With the added chance to repurpose their décor items at their wedding, they went sweet with desserts and paper flowers, and whimsy and random with their fencing gear, all tied together with fresh flowers, wooden decorative elements, and so much joy and laughter. Thanks to hellojanelee for these incredibly sweet bridal portraits.

Grace: “When we initially planned for a pre-wed shoot, we wanted to have something really significant and memorable. Our initial plan was to go to Cambodia (because that’s where our love story began), however the currency was too high so we had to scrap that idea. The next significant place was our home. Not long after we got together, we renovated this house and moved in together, so it means a lot to us and we wanted to capture this memory. Better yet, there were no cost and rules involved! We managed to set everything up early and we’re blessed that we were not outdoors, as it was really hot in March.”

Tips from the bride: “A pre-wedding shoot doesn’t have to be expensive! Try to make use of everything – my gown designer gave me the idea of wearing a detachable skirt for my pre-wedding shoot, which would give me a different look on the wedding day. I bought an H&M top and paired it with a skirt. If you don’t have the money to spare, you can always redo an anniversary shoot. Practice if you want to do fresh flowers and other DIY decorations, and give yourself enough time and start early; after all, you don’t want to look tired in pictures. We practiced a week in advance and set up much earlier so we knew exactly how it would look in pictures.”
