Maci’s wedding was set for December, and with her being a teacher, scheduling her bridal portraits during Thanksgiving break was a huge win! I had never been to Shadow Oak Plantation, so these portraits allowed for us to explore the area before their wedding day. This property is so unique for our area — lots of exotic animals were just beyond the fence row in most of these shots! The fall light was gorgeous and I’m so thankful we were able to fit these in!
Bridal portraits are more than just pretty, it gives brides a chance to really experience what their dress, veil, and shoes feel and look like. Almost every time I do a bridal portrait session, a mental list is being created between the bride and her mother about changes that need to be made — “I’ve got to break these shoes in”, “This is too loose and needs more alterations”, “I’d rather my veil be lower or higher”, “Maybe I SHOULD wear that necklace”. Putting the whole outfit on and moving in it makes such a difference in the feel!
Maci was stunning in every way and she looked every bit as pretty on her wedding day a month later… so thankful for clients that trust me to photograph their most meaningful days!
