Something old, Something new

Something old, something new, something borrowed, something blue.

They say that summer is for lovers, and I could not agree more. Here is a simple, clean summer bridal look I modeled with one of my favorite wedding photographers- Anna Peters.

My first bridal shoot happened in Seattle last fall; nearly five styled shoots later I've found what I love to do more than anything- play fake bride. It might sound a little weird, but it's so much fun.

There are many different "genres" of modeling: avant garde, commercial, bridal, fitness, alternative, boudoir. I have been able to do a few different styles, but bridal has always been the easiest for me to model. Modeling is essentially like acting, and playing the part of bride has always come easily for me.

People rarely know about the not-so-glamorous sides of modeling because it is rarely discussed. As we were taking photos in the middle of a field we were nearly bitten to death by mosquitoes (minor exaggeration), but boy were the bugs bad that day. However, as always, the end result is always worth it.

Until next time :)
