We took Marianne’s bridal photos on her family farm. It was very beautiful! The farm was actually owned by the Boyse family until 1912. The farm produced milk and potatoes for Erskine College, my Alma mater. We took a few in front of an old barn. I just love the texture of old wood!



We took these photos in the yard at the side of the house.



These were taken in her front yard where the lighting was really soft and even!


Marianne has amazing bone structure, her cheeks and chin are very well defined. I wanted a picture that really accentuated this. As an added bonus her ring really stands out!


I love the swirls and curly lines on her dress, and the V shape in the back of the dress, it hugs the small of her back, and really compliments her figure.



I always love getting close-ups with people’s eyes!


Her dog joined in on the bridal photos. 🙂


One thing I love about bridal shoots is that no two are the same, and a lot of times I wind up shooting in places I didn’t plan on. When we were driving to meet Marianne we saw tons of awesome spots for pictures, and we made mental notes of where they all were, thinking we might get a couple at the house and then go back to the spots. When we go to Marianne’s we discovered that there were plenty of great places to take photos, and they’d be even more special to her, as the place where she grew up, instead of a random field or something. It’s very important to me that the bride’s pictures be special to her, and if possible, the location have some significance in her life. It adds something special to the photo, almost like a little secret, or story behind it.

Kristen’s Bridals

Monday, June 22nd, 2009

Kristen picked a beautiful location for her bridal photos! We went to the Irmo Town Park in Irmo, SC. There were hundreds of people actually there taking photos. It was one of those public parks that all of the high school kids go to and get their prom photos taken at. There were a few professional photographers and then tons of parents taking photos.

There were pretty trees and the sun was shining through the leaves, making them glow. It was great to frame Kristen with.


Kristen couldn’t stop laughing. She was laughing almost the whole time we were taking photos. I think she felt like she was on some bridal show runway, since there were a lot of high school students and their parents around. She got a lot of stares and people giving her compliments.


Kristen can easily change her look, to silly, fun or serious.


The pink flowers really complimented the colors of her lips and skin.




The sun was really lighting up the trees now.


However, clouds quickly started moving in, so we left to another location. We found a field on Amicks Ferry Rd in Chapin, SC. We had to take a few quick photos since the storm clouds were almost on top of us.


Here are a few details.
