Let’s be honest. There are a lot of crazy photography ideas out there. This might be the sentimental side of me speaking, but one idea that I think is a little crazy is when people completely trash their beautiful wedding dress. I’ve seen photos of brides burning their dress, laying in mud in their gown & plenty of other cuh-razzzzy things. One thing is for sure-if I burned my wedding dress, my mama would march right to my house & sucka punch me in the face. Well, she’d probably call me on the phone & ask me, “What were you thinking?” but you get the idea. I realize that everyone has different ideas of what they want to do with their wedding dress & I respect whatever people want to do but let me tell you-I kept my wedding dress so that one day my daughter can try it on, run around the house in it & laugh at me because my wedding dress was soooooooo 2003 (just like my sisters & I have done with my mom’s wedding dress).
One idea that I love that I don’t think is crazy is getting back in your wedding dress after your wedding dress (days, weeks or months after the wedding) and doing some beautiful photographs in a different setting than where your wedding was. In a field, by the mountains, downtown…anywhere that reflects your style. I think it’s a great way to get some more beautiful photographs in your amazing wedding gown before you box it up for your posterity to see!
I met up with Nicole & Luke for some relaxed, fun bridals at sunset…the best part of the shoot was that we figured out a location to shoot & then saw this gorgeous home with the most perfectly landscaped lawn-Luke rang the doorbell & the family was nice enough to give us full reign of their yard! The other best part was that Nicole stepped in the Truckee River for a few shots! Luke spends a lot of time fishing there so he was sooooooo excited to do a few shots in the river! All in all, it was a lovely day spent with two wonderful people! I LOVE these photographs (and this couple!) so, SO much!
