Due to my jaunt to Great Britain as well as being supremely busy with life in general, I've not had the chance to post the last bride from our series! Hilary was cute and bubbly and made for the perfect contemporary bride. This look was modern and fun and elegant, all while staying in the present.

To my dear friend, Kamee, thank you including me in such a fun and creative project. I loved sharing this vision with you! And to Kat, I applaud your mastery over hair and makeup and styling... you have a gift I wasn't blessed with!

The Country Bride... easily the "type" of bride I was most excited about shooting. It's likely because I relate to "country" over "couture" or "contemporary"... that's what happens when you grow up with horses and a cowgirl as a mother! (I had such a great childhood!!)

Lexy was a fantastic Country Chic model for us, and her boots- the perfect touch!  We needed a good blonde for this role, and she filled it well.
And what do you know, we stumbled upon a horse! What luck! I loved the soft evening light mixed with the country lace and leather boots-- it was a gorgeous, if not chilly, evening. Again, a huge thanks to Kitsch By Katrina for styling and my close friend, Kamee June for her creative ideas!


Jen says:

FABULOUS! i love the casual, country feel of these. So great. And your exposure, as usual, is flawless. Think I could make this work for newborns? The country newborn, the couture newborn, the classic newborn? LOL!

The second in a series of four posts :: The Couture Bride.

This whole set was very out-of-the-box for me, and I enjoyed feeling the stretch of creativity and artistry. Kalynne was the perfect couture model- as a dancer, she's confident and keenly aware of movement, which made her easy to photograph.

The following images are processed with The Storyteller's Collection, a new action set soon to be released by Addy Lane.  I don't generally process my images very heavily, but I felt that these images needed a heavier edit to compliment the "couture" theme...

Unbelievable. You are a true artist.

It's spring in Southern California! The weather has been unbelievably beautiful- enough so that I took my children to the pool for the first time this year yesterday. In anticipation of the 2011 wedding season that is upon us, I've teamed up with a couple of outrageously creative minds and we've been working on some great projects! This is the first in a series of 4 posts, showcasing different "types" of brides- the classic bride, the couture bride, the country bride and the contemporary bride.

A huge thanks to Katrina Kirk, our fantastic sylist, and to my sweet friend Kamee June who was instrumental in getting this off the ground! (And, a big shout out to our gorgeous model, Hannah, who has the most beautiful skin I've ever seen on an adult!)


Kathi Cook says:
