My friend Elizabeth is GORGEOUS and made such a beautiful bride! You might remember hearing about her when I first shared why every bride should have bridal portraits, which was a teaser that teased you for way to long . . .you probably forgot about her.
Anyway, Elizabeth was breathtaking and captivating in her wedding dress. I was amazed by the photo above, the lighting, the shadows, the drama of it all that I wanted to share her stunningness with you in both color and black and white. Elizabeth got married back in August in Jackson, MS. I flew up on Wednesday for her Saturday wedding to be able to get some bridal portraits taken and printed before the reception. I literally landed, we went and had her make up done and headed downtown to Farish street which was the PERFECT place for this shoot. I must say, my friend was very brave and pretty open to doing anything EVEN though it was three days before her wedding. She sat on the street (next to cigarettes), leaned up against walls with nails on them, and crawled into an abandoned room full of overgrown ivy all with her dress on that she had not been married in yet. Actually, I believe it was when she was sitting on the ground with her back to the blue wall that someone walked by and said “I hope you’re already married!” It was because she was “pretty open to doing anything” that she now has some of the most amazing bridal portraits ever.
I was loving the old abandoned buildings, the textures, colors and of course lighting right before sunset. I think you’ll be loving them too!
I’m working on her beautiful wedding photos. You should hopefully see those sometime in the next week.
Elizabeth- I know you already know this but I LOVE YOU and am so thankful to have been an integral part of your big day!
