We love to shoot bridal sessions! They give us more time to spend with our brides and make sure they feel as beautiful as ever. Many brides love the outdoorsy garden look which we love. However, for many reasons, our bridals sessions require us shooting inside, and it sometimes requires some research to achieve a look fit for a bridal session, while shooting inside.
With the many bridal sessions that we shoot, we have come up with four venues we have worked with that are incredible options for indoor bridal sessions. Each of these venues, are FULL of beautiful window light, big rooms, and groomed gardens that will give you the stunning bridal portraits you want. Below are our four favorites!
Ritchie is by far one of our favorites! The amount of window light you get from this place is breathtaking and its 'Old Vintage house' feel makes this venue stand out from the rest. What we love most about Ritchie Hill is that although this place has an old vintage feel, you don't necessarily go with the old vintage look. This house compliments a variety of different styles. Not to mention the staff is incredible. We just love Ritchie Hill. Contact this place for your next bridal session, you'll be in great hands. *click photos to enlarge*

All we can say is REGAL REGAL REGAL. This place is just sheer gorgeous. The Duke mansion, on top of being one of the most sought of wedding venue, has 20 individually decorated guest rooms so you can sleep over night in luxury. Its massive botanical courtyard is to die for, as well as their signature, checkered floors throughout the hall. It also has incredible window light in just about every room for that grand regal feel. I highly recommend this place and it was such an incredible pleasure shooting here. *click photos to enlarge*

This place is breathtakingly gorgeous. Located in Gastonia, Separk Mansion, has the perfect blend of Regal and botanical. They have one of most beautiful bridal suites we have ever seen and also compliment multiple styles of photographers from the light and airy to the dark and moody. Separk is the place to go for multiple options with indoor and outdoor components of a bridal, wedding, or an engagements. There are huge windows throughout to surely give you the window light, dreamy look you want. Absolutely love Separk Mansion. *click photos to enlarge*

The Dairy Barn is so underrated in our opinion. This place is just absolutely gorgeous and the amount of things you can do here is incredible. The outdoor grounds of the Dairy Barn are so breathtaking that it make you want to shoot every couple here. There are so many hidden places off of the trail that have so much character that even if you were to shoot all of your clients here, each session would look completely different. Inside the dairy barn, you have such variety for your bridal session whether you want something more dramatic and dark, or light and dreamy. Their dark ceremony hall upstairs is a moody photographers dream with its two incredibly large windows. Such a picturesque venue all around. *Click photos to enlarge*
