Bridal Portraits for Rashida

A few months back I had the incredible opportunity to work with Rashida to capture her Bridal Portraits. Our first time meeting was on our session together — let me say, her and her family are so warm and welcoming that it literally felt like I've known them my entire life! Rashida is such a sweet person and I'm so honored to have had the opportunity to capture her portraits.

We met at her home church Zion Chapel Free Will Baptist in Ayden, NC for her session. It was so much fun, despite the slight monsoon, I mean rain. It cleared up just in time for us to go out!


I am beyond ecstatic to share some of the photos now that I can finally share them. I was so excited about how great our session was that I went home, edited a few, and started to post a sneak peek — that is, until the little guy on my shoulder snapped me back into reality with a, "... umm, Bryant... she's not married yet!" Oh! 😂

It's always fun to end the shoot by playing around with the lighting. I absolutely love this photo!

Congratulations Rashida and Kalon. I wish you a lifetime of happiness!
