Allie - Vintage Meets Contemporary
WHAT: Bridals | WHEN: June 10, 2008
|I love bridal sessions. I could do nothing but bridal sessions and be happy as a photographer doing nothing but bridal sessions. The brides always look stunning and are ridiculously excited about their upcoming wedding day and they're willing to do crazy things all in the name of an artistic image that will make them look amazing. And best of all, unlike (most) children they can't move very fast and they're (usually) extremely cooperative. C'mon, as a photographer does it get any better? I submit it does not.
|Meet Allie. I've never met a bride that had a harder time not smiling. You wouldn't know it from some of the images below, but it was work for her to keep a straight face. Man did she pull it off, though. She and Josh are committing their lives to each other on June 28th... for the 2nd time. Yep, they already had a small, quick ceremony - a dry run ya might call it - not too long ago when they unexpectedly found out Josh was notified he was being deployed to Afghanistan. Shortly after they got married, Josh then found out he now didn't have to leave until January, so the "official" wedding is back on.
Isn't Allie a gorgeous bride? One of the coolest things to me about this session is that she is wearing the wedding dress her grandmother Judy wore 50 years ago with a few modern updates her aunt Debbie was ale to make. How cool is that? Very vintage contemporary.
Here are a few of my favorite images from our session together.
