holiday wedding. styled winter bridals part III.

Here is the third look of the styled winter bridal shoot I shot this weekend: “Holidays”. Check out “Country Elegance” and “Cozy Comfy“, too!

If you’re a winter bride or know a winter bride feel free to pin or pass on these looks. Hopefully they’ll unleash some new creativity for you, too! I’m spreading out the 4 looks into 4 different blog posts so stay tuned for the rest…

Please also visit the websites and/or facebook pages of my vendors who helped me make this shoot happen. I couldn’t have done this without each and every one of them ❤ (Take a look at the one shot with my assistant/second shooter extraordinaire, Alora, doing her thing – Isn’t she the cutest?!).

If you are on Pinterest feel free to also check out my “For the Brides” board 🙂

tara and brad got married :)

I love my job.

I had such an incredible time photographing Brad and Tara’s wedding this past Saturday.  They have got to be the most encouraging, affirming couple that I have ever met (they almost made me cry a few times from their compliments about my work).  They had such a genuine attitude towards me I just couldn’t believe it.  Bah!  Enough about me! 🙂

The day was stunning.  Tara and her bridesmaids were beautiful and her daughter was the cutest flower girl you’ve ever seen (and her and I were “best friends” by the end of the night, I learned! lol).  The groomsmen were a blast and all around we had such a fun time.

Tara and Brad, THANK YOU.  You’re why I love doing this so much.

Have a look at some of my favorites.  If you like what you see please tell your friends about me 🙂  You can also support me by “liking” my facebook page and checking out my website!

Props, too, to my photografriend and gifted assistent, Alora.  Check out her work here 🙂
