Seaside Bridal Portraits

Two things that kind of scare me as a photographer: high wind and bright sun. I really have an affinity for shooting in during overcast days. Anyway, when I went down to the oceanfront to photograph a styled bridal session coordinated by Viktoriya of The Hanging Gardens, it was both very windy and very sunny. However, I embraced the unknown and we ended up with some gorgeous pictures. Jen, our beautiful model, absolutely rocked it, and basically this session ended up being the stuff of dreams.

The bouquet had yards of silk that got picked up by the wind, and the dress was so moveable. I absolutely love capturing movement, so both of those things were great. Also, hair. Windswept can be such a stunning look for long hair.

Seriously so much movement. The high wind had a lot to do with it, so maybe I like shooting in high wind now???

 Also these dogs were there having the time of their lives, and they deserve to be documented too.

I could honestly post about 100 more of these. But I won't. At least not today... Have a good weekend, all!
