I've known Bethany's family now for just over a year. I first photographed her sister Mariah's newborn twins and older daughter Aubrey. Shortly after that I met the whole family - including Bethany - last fall for their extended family session. Now it's Bethany's turn to be in the spotlight.
Bethany is getting married over Thanksgiving week on a cruise ship. Since she will not have a professional photographer along for the ride, we decided to incorporate a few traditional wedding shots in her bridal session - minus the groom, of course. Both the flower girl (sweet Aubrey), maid of honor (Mariah), and the mother of the bride were on hand to help Bethany document this special event in her life.
Bethany chose the McKinney Cotton Mill for her bridal portrait location. You may remember I posted a little teaser from this location a couple weeks ago. Now you get the insider's pass! Bethany's dress and coloring were absolutely stunning in this location. And, since this is my first bridal session, I wanted to go all-out with her sneak peak. I was too excited to post just a few.
So, here you go, Bethany. Trust me, there are a ca-zillion more breathtaking images just waiting to be uploaded to your client gallery. I should have that up by the middle of next week. In the meantime, I've decided to post a second sneak-peak on my blog in the next day or two featuring my favorite B&W images from your session. They are so awesome...I just have to share them with everyone.
Thank you so much for entrusting me with your bridal portraits, Bethany. It was a true honor. I hope this day was full of magical memories for all of you. Congratulations, Bethany! I'm looking forward to meeting your fiance on Sunday.
I could not have done this session without my good friend and colleague, Margaret Henderson. Check out her website. She's one talented lady! Thanks so much for coming along, manning the reflector, and allowing me to bounce my ideas off of you. I very much appreciate you, Margaret!
