Day 100 ~ Kylie
WHAT: Bridals, Project 365 (2009) | WHEN: April 13, 2009
|I've been looking forward to this shoot since the day I asked Kylie to marry me. Photographing brides is one of my favorite things to do, and since this session would be with my favorite girl, how much more favoriter could it get?
I know it sounds corny, but I do feel blessed every day to share my life with Kylie... she is beautiful in every way. I definitely married up. I'm excited to be making this journey through life with her... to be her best friend, her partner in crime, her supporter, her fan, her confidant... her husband. I love you, sweetie.
It was kinda funny to photograph my wife in a bridal session, though... more often than not when I'd start to tell Kylie to turn her head this way or lean that way, she'd be like, I know, I know... I know what you want me to do, just gimme a second... it's hard to move in this dress. Hahaha... she's on to my tricks and needed very little coaching.
We went down to Highland Park United Methodist Church near the SMU campus in Dallas Friday afternoon, and my friend Tina came along to photograph Kylie as well. HPUMC was some amazing architecture and makes for a great backdrop for bridal photos. We had an awesome time until the Good Friday service got out just after 8pm and a stampede of people signaled the end of our session there.
Here's a few of my favorites of my favorite girl.
|I. Love. This. Image.|
|I really wanted to get a "field shot", and on the way home we were racing against the clock to find a spot with an uncluttered view of the sky (not an easy thing to do in the urban sprawl of Dallas) before the amazing sky we had went dark. We jumped the curve on the service road of the George Bush turnpike and jumped out of the car ran into the field and caught these last two images literally in about 4 minutes. It was a little darker than I wanted by the time we started, but I still love the dramatic feel of these last two. For any photographer types reading this, Tina was holding an SB-800 flash + 20" softbox off camera to Kylie's right that I fired with PocketWizard wireless transceivers.|
|As Kylie mentioned, the only bad part about this day was there was no plane ride to Italy the next day... unlike the last time she wore this dress.|
