What an amazing day I had with Cathy and our fabulous team of vendors. The day started off bright and early at 6am. I’m always looking to shoot in the best light. So early is best. Once out of hair and make up, I got a chance to talk with Cathy and help style her for our bridal session. I love this part of my job. It allows me to be able to build not just a great working relationship with my client but a friendship bond. I started the session in the hotel room that had such beautiful natural light. I had to catch my breath once I saw what I had on my camera. I then took Cathy to some beautiful spots I knew of in the area. Here is just a few shots from our session. I really love this Peonies Floral crown I designed and Carlos Flores put together for Cathy. First of all, I’m in love with Peonies flowers. And the color was so flattering against Cathy’s skin and veil. With the natural light it just made photographing her a dream. Thank you Cathy for spending the afternoon with me and for allowing me to photograph this Bridal Session.
