Erika’s Revel Event Center Bridal Session was one that I have been waiting on. I loved working with her and George for their engagement session and I have really been wanting to shoot something in this venue. I shot the first promo shots of Revel when they first remodeled the place but this was the first time I would get to work with a bride or groom here. Shooting at a place that is new to us always excites me. Its a blank canvas with no preconceived notion of outcome. A “let’s get creative and dare to be great ” moment. Plus me and this place have history. Some of the best nights of my life, well former life as a working musician were spent here when it was the best concert venue the Upstate has ever seen, The Handlebar. Seriously this place was legendary. As I was walking out the door for the session It felt weird to grab a camera and not grab Frosty (my trusty Les Paul guitar) but I digress.

The session did not disappoint.  The light in here is amazing. Huge windows with glowing natural light that has a distinct mood to it. And don’t even get me started about my bride. Erika absolutely rocked it!  It has been hard not to share these before the wedding, but since that was last weekend (awesome pics of that to come as well!) here we go!

Please enjoy!

With its huge window and intricate woodwork, the bar at Revel is perfect for a bridal session!
