Dressing of the Bride – Jone & Andy
I recently had the privilege of photographing the wedding of a beautiful couple – Jone & Andy. One of my favourite parts of photographing a wedding (if not my favourite part!) is the ‘Dressing of the Bride’. Being a Glamour Photographer, I love capturing a woman’s beauty in portraits. And its hard to find a day when a woman looks more glamourous than her wedding day! With makeup perfectly applied, hair beautifully styled, and wearing her dream dress – a bride is such a joy to photograph!
I like to start by individually photographing the different aspects that will make up her “dressing” ….the shoes, flowers, perfume, and anything else unique to her. Then whilst the bride is carefully getting into her dress (usually with the help of willing bridesmaids or mum) I love to photograph the (sometimes hectic) event that IS ‘The Dress’! How to get the dress on without touching the hair and makeup, and how to do up the million buttons!!
But my absolute favourite part is once she is fully dressed, and looking like she has just stepped down from heaven! Here are just a few photographs taken of Jane during her ‘Dressing of the Bride’ moment…..
Monte & Jika // Engagement Shoot
Today I got to indulge my love of Studio Glamour with the Engagement Shoot of the very lovely (and just a bit spunky!) Monte & Jika . These guys are getting married in just 8 weeks, so today we had a bit of pre-wedding photo fun! What better time to have a Couple Glamour Photo shoot done then during your engagement! You’re young, looking good, and all loved up! I know that in years to come these guys are going to look back on these shots with very fond memories…and maybe even one day show the kiddies!?
We went from Casual to Glam, from candid to posed, and I must say Monte & Jika were fantastic models! A couple like this are a photographers dream, now I can’t wait to shoot their wedding!! Here are a few of my favs from the shoot…
