Moody, Elegant, and Romantic is what comes to mind for this session. Our featured model, Megan Waits is a stunning redhead with beautiful blue eyes. The dress was a Maggie Sottero gown that the lovely folks at Bella's Bridal Boutique in Lubbock, Texas let us borrow. The venue is the gorgeous Hilton Garden Inn in Lubbock, Texas. The hotel was opened in August and is full of light, modern designs, and is the perfect setting for any wedding or event.
We went with a beautiful bouquet full of cream colored roses, sage, eucalyptus, and hints of pink to go with the vintage style lace dress. The shoot could not have gone more smoothly with the help of local hair and makeup artist Adrianna Garcia and my awesome second shooter/lighting assistant Linda Mann from Mann Made Imagery. These gals are truly amazing and I love them all to pieces!
The posing and lighting are the two main keys to putting this together. On any given West Texas wedding day, there are a million differently backdrops and lighting situations to overcome. I wanted to show the brides of West Texas that there are options indoors, in the rain, and in any lighting situation imaginable. This shoot was a run though of the worst lighting situations possible and how to make the best of them! The end result... stunningly beautiful images <3
