Leigh – Bridal Portrait at The Dallas ArboretumDallas, Texas

Leigh is a gorgeous bride!  Her lace gown with a plunging back and neckline was amazing!  I am loving these new illusion styles that expose yet cover and make dresses so sensual yet sophisticated.  Leigh is a sweet girl and I loved hanging out with her and her Mom at the bridal session at The Dallas Arboretum.  Her veil added some drama and when paired with the light wind we had some perfect moments.  Her bouquet was loose and lush in whites and greens and the simplicity of the color palette complemented her overall look.

Brides of North Texas {Fall/Winter 2011 Issue Gown Shoot} Dreamy dresses, elegant bride, handsome groom and vintage detailing

I do have a true love story with brides and wedding dresses.  One of the main reasons I am passionate about shooting weddings is that I love the fairy tale, the excitement and the uniqueness that surrounds each wedding gown and the bride that chooses it.  When the owners of Brides of North Texas Magazine approached me about this dreamy vintage shoot I was on board from the  moment I saw the inspiration board.  It was completely up my alley as I love all things that are soft, natural, vintage and romantic.  It stood out to me as different as well from other gown editorials as we were going to throw into the mix a good looking young man, some designer suiting, a table-scape, detail shots and a boudoir look!  I was completely taken a back as well as I thought, little old me, shoot a gown editorial?  I knew I could do it but I also think that a degree of humbleness and wanting to improve is essential to any artists growth.  This shoot humbled me, wowed me and when I finally held the magazine in my hands I was in awe of what I created.  I actually looked at my staff and said I can’t believe these are my photos!  I am so in love with each image and the Brides of North Texas staff so blessed me with this opportunity.  I can’t wait for the projects I will shoot with them in the future!  Later this Fall I will share some more images from the shoot that are not in the magazine as well as a few behind the scenes moments.
