One of my favorite types of shoots are bridal portraits. I just love the challenge of taking photos that represent the bride, her gown, her personality and her excitement. To us, this is the shoot where you capture the bride at their most beautiful moment! The icing on the cake is when you shoot someone you know and love. Not only was our bride Ryan and my dearest friend, she is a former roommate. To those who know her, her name is Kristie, to Ryan and me, it is Kricket. After three patient years, her day has finally arrived.
We decided to drive out to a friend’s farm and capture the many expressions of Kristie with an old Virginia, southern twist. The irony of the whole day was it was the hottest day of the summer and the fields were covered with….you guessed it….crickets! How fitting. At any given moment there were literally 30-40 crickets in every layer of tool. They never touched her legs and you can’t see them in any of the pictures….but underneath that beautiful overlay was a sea of creepy crawlies! So despite heat and bugs, we had the BEST time capturing our beautiful Kricket.
