oh. my. word.
I cannot even begin to express how much joy this bridal shoot brought me! First of all, It was the most comfortable, PERFECT evening for pictures...that cool, "summer's comin' to an end" kind of evening. And secondly, Joanna was beaming from head to toe with beauty! We started at the wedding venue- and old coca-cola factory! Then, headed out to the country where Joanna felt right at home kicking off her stilletos and running barefoot through the grass.
This woman was so excited to get married, and I loved sharing in this special season with her! I especially loved capturing her spunky, free-spirited personality. Joanna fearlessly broke the "rules" of traditional bridal portraits, providing me with the most authentic photographs that reflect her personality in a way I absolutely adore! I loved capturing her proudly running through the streets of downtown Monroe, her bold "peacock" color- themed heels, and twirling through fields in her wedding gown like every woman dreams of since she first learns of fairytales as a little girl...I loved capturing her passion as she lifted her hands to worship God in the midst of his beautiful creation, and in awe of all He has done in her life!
There is something almost sacred about capturing a bride like Joanna in her wedding gown. It represents one of the most monumental transitions she will ever make.. from ME to WE.
I couldn't be more honored to tell this "bridal story"!
CONGRATULATIONS Josh and Joanna!
