This bride was a cowgirl who married her cowboy in front of all her cowboy friends and family. The twin boys had cowboy hats, the rings had horseshoes on them, and their cake topper was two horses. Her smiles were real and I’m pretty sure they rode off into the sunset.
I love shooting Pinterest brides. This particular bride had a simple idea and brought her stickers. It took a few seconds to make sure they were in the right location and direction, but ultimately turned out pretty fun. A bride with cute shoes is a girl after my own heart.
I love this photo because I love this bride. Meeting up in old town Arvada before their nuptials, this non-traditional couple pranced and danced by the train tracks with the bride-to-be donning a deep purple wedding dress. The photo session was cut short due to a summer rain storm, but no amount of wonky weather was going to stop this couple. With part of the ceremony honoring her Hmong heritage, the couple came to the reception in full uniform with colorful bells and wraps. Rumor has it that she just gave birth last month and that they have a new addition and reason to smile.
There’s just something about the “almost kiss.” That moment of hesitation, expectation, and desire.
Every couple I ever shot has a story. I love back stories. At some point during my time with them I always try and squeeze out a tale or two of a juicy detail about their relationship, engagement, or history. This particular couple was my Harley couple that rode in from six states away to elope in the Rocky Mountains. They were all about the leather & lace…and they were fun. I won’t get into their personal details because it’s not for me to tell, but I love this photo because it reminds me of their story and makes me smile every time I see it.
