Michelle and Mark's bridal shoot

I'm a fairly traditional person when it comes to pretty much everything except photos. That's why we were so excited when Michelle and Mark told us that they wanted to disregard tradition and do their pictures of the two of them several hours before the wedding. The wedding was going to take place at Mark's parent's home in the evening. So to balance the evening sun, we decided to shoot the bridal shots early in the morning...that's right, early, like 6:30!

But I'll tell you, we had a great time. We spent three hours and covered almost every corner of that 160-acre farm.

We shot by bride and groom flirting with each other in front of the out-house...


We shot the bride and groom testing out the chairs at the ceremony site, 10 hours before the wedding...


We shot the beautiful bride on the stairway of the barn, in her fabulous Nicole Miller dress (we love Nicole Miller!). With this shot we were obviously going for a fashion magazine look...


We also shot the bride in the bathtub, not your ordinary bridal portrait, but very playful and so much fun. I love the color in this image and the natural light coming from the skylight...


We had so much fun working with Michelle and Mark, and doing their pictures before-hand really made things easier. We'll post some images from the wedding soon.

AMAZING! I still cannot believe that you guys are shooting our wedding! 6:30AM does not sound so bad when the pictures are this great. LOVE LOVE LOVE all of them, especially the bathroom shot and the one on the chair. And she has to love the one of her dress - so couture looking. CAN'T WAIT!
