The Bride and her Dress


Way excited to be sharing this set of pictures.
It was the perfect storm of awesomeness that all came together for an awesome shoot.

We took pictures for a couple hours then took a 30-40 minute break to wait for the moment when we knew that the christmas lights would come on. We were not disapointed.
I knew they were great when I was taking them and I knew she was cold and we had plenty of pictures so this flurry of pictures at the end only lasted a few minutes while the lights were on and then we were done.

Funny Story. It was so windy she actually lost the veil and it flew high into a tree… it took us 5-10 minutes to get it down. We pinned it in later.

Our locations outside were determined by where the wind was less and where the ground was cleaner


Lighting determines posing sometimes.

The dress was a star and I treated it with photographic respect

I am MORE than happy to work with dresses from this dedicated and unique designer so look her up: or

The bride was a star… she was a natural… she did her thing and let me spend more time and mental effort in doing my thing.

    these are absolutely stunning!! i am a big fan of your work. i would love to know some of the technical details of this shoot – the supplemental lighting you used, etc.

  6. Liz H says

    did you use HDR to capture the christmas lights images, or were you able to do that in camera?

  7. Carolyn Smith says

    I am in awe!! Honestly, I was moved to tears to see these photos. Where were you when I got married 12 years ago. You have an amazing talent. If you ever come to Alaska, I would love for you to take my families photos.
