Photographer Beverly Barrett
says, "I encourage clients to think outside the box."Barrett
shared the example of a bride and groom who enjoy golfing; "she
loved to golf, so we took her
bridal portraits on the 18th hole."
Couples may include any ethnic or religious elements in their portraits."One of my clients was Vietnamese-American and we took the portraits in the traditional Vietnamese dress," says Barrett
