On Tuesday evening I met up with Tessa & Jimmy for their newlywed photos. Dara's Garden provided a beautiful, colorful backdrop for the session.

I'm so glad that we had the chance to do these photos. It is obviously great to have the extra time for more photos, but what I really like is the fact that they were so much more relaxed. Wedding days are just very stressful events, and it is much easier to capture natural expressions when people are relaxed.
Too many couples think that it is just a big hassle to do a session after the wedding day, but it doesn't have to be.

Most guys do not rent a tux again. They just go with a dark suit. If you want to look a little more formal, purchase a tie in the same color as the one worn on the wedding day.

Most girls do not have their hair and makeup professionally done. It's a good opportunity to even try a different look. If you normally wear your hair down but had an up-do for the wedding then it's nice to wear your hair down or half-up for the couple session.

You do not have to have a bouquet, but if you want one then you can just purchase some roses at the grocery and give them a couple of days to open up. Then use rubber bands and ribbon to bind them together.

You do not have to worry about the dress being in perfect condition. I actually prefer if it's a little dirty so that brides don't think twice about sitting on the ground or leaning against trees.

The bride is beautiful - she probably takes after her Aunt Susie!
