As most of you know…I do not photograph weddings. I much prefer all the little kids and babies and wonderful families that I get to work throughout the year. But every now and then, a bride asks me to shoot her bridal portrait. I get so excited because brides are beautiful, and their dresses are beautiful, and their hair, and jewelry, etc, etc. And they do what I ask and I don't have to chase them around which is a nice plus as well!
I photographed Christie's nephew last year, so I had already met her at a prior session. She got married last Saturday and called me the week before to see if they could squeeze in a last minute bridal portrait. Of course I was thrilled, especially since this is a family I already know and adore. Sydney was even more excited than me that a bride was coming to our house! Christie was so great with Sydney and even posed for a few shots with her (I'll post those later). For fun, I asked if she would be interested in doing a "trash the dress" session after the wedding with her husband. I've been dying to do a session like this at my new favorite outdoor location. She happily agreed. Here are my favorites from both sessions. I am beyond excited about how these turned out and can't wait to share more!!
