I love it when a shoot is conceived spontaneously–I was getting my hair styled by the amazingly talented Tara Tussing, and she mentioned that she was getting married in a few weeks. I asked if she would be interested in doing a bridal photo session after her wedding, and she absolutely was! Tara wanted to try something artistic and interesting, so I suggested my favorite photo location and a daring proposal… let’s get that dress WET!*
I have to admit that sessions like this are one of my absolute favorite things to shoot. There’s nothing better than having a quiet moment to really consider my surroundings and light, and to have a lot of freedom to experiment artistically with my subject. Tara was an absolutely gorgeous bride, and it was a lot of fun** to take these beautiful images together!
*No Stella York dresses were permanently harmed in the making of these photos. Promise.
**I maaaay or may not have gotten waist deep in water for some of these shots. (Don’t worry, I kept my camera dry!)
