I Do

Like many girls, I have dreamed about my wedding day since I was a little girl. I've thought of the dress I'd wear, what the venue would be like, the flavor of the cake...pretty much anything and everything that goes into a couples' "big day".

It wasn't until I moved to Seattle that I truly discovered a different part of modeling- bridal! Lora Grady contacted me wanting to see if I would be interested in taking part in a bridal project with her and her team. When she first approached me I had no clue what to expect; however, when she sent over inspiration photos of what she was hoping to capture I was excited to take part in a project like this for the first time. On the short spectrum you have a photo with a female model wearing a bridal dress, possibly holding some flowers. The other side of the spectrum is a little more complex involving a full team: photographer, hair, makeup, designer, florist, calligraphist, etc. 

I arrived to the Fairmont Hotel in downtown Seattle on an early Saturday morning. Started the day with getting my hair and makeup done. As makeup and hair was underway, wedding planner- Tamara Nicole started setting up the banquet room with different props, and figuring out what backdrops were to be used that day. I had two different wedding dresses to photograph, and so began the project. We took photos inside the hotel, venturing to the sidewalks circling the area, there were even two little girls playing flowers girls and a handsome male model playing groom for the day. No, I did not have my bridal moment, but it was a fun experience imagining what my wedding day could be like. That was the start of something new for me. If you like what you see here, go take a peek at the Bridal section on my website. Needless to say, this is now one of my favorite styles to shoot.
