Schanell is one smart lady. She requested that we do a bridal session before the wedding, which I think is always a smart idea. Furthermore, she wanted to bring along her young daughter to make sure that they had great photos, in case things did not go according to plan on the day of. Smart lady. She also had Ben come later all dressed up (after she had changed, of course) to take pictures with Sophia as well. Then, on the wedding day, all they would need were pictures of the three of them. What a great idea! I think it worked out quite well.
