The pithy saying that “everything old is new again” really does hold true in weddings. One such return to the traditions of yesterday is formal portraiture. While couples still love the candid, photojournalistic approach, they are now opting for some more traditional, formal shots in addition to capturing the moments. And brides are also returning to the concept of the bridal portrait, which had declined for a few years. Here are a few lovely examples:
