Kate's Bridal Portraits

You might remember Kate from her and JJ's ranch engagement shoot late last year or from the short movie I made a couple weeks ago of her wedding ceremony.  Kate has been a dream to work with, and I've had so much fun capturing all of the parts of her and JJ's wedding.

We took Kate's bridals at Shadowhawk Country Club on a windy and cloudy day in February.  When she arrived to Shadowhawk, the weather didn't look good.  We shot with what we had, using some nice soft window light.

After we finished up around the club house, I wasn't totally content.  Kate was wearing her mother's beautiful cathedral length veil, and I really wanted to do something to feature that.  I had come up with some ideas and locations on the course to shoot that would feature her beautifully in the veil, but they didn't really fit the weather we were dealing with.  So I decided we would just head over towards a hill that I had seen earlier, and try to make the best of it.

It was a good thing we decided to give it a try, because right after I posed Kate on top of the hill, the skies began to open up just a bit.  The sun had made its way down, and there was too much cloud cover for a much desired dramatic sunset.  However, the sky opened up just enough to give us a nice, deep blue and purple sky, which was a welcomed sight after having nothing but cold, grey skies all day.  For the next 15 minutes we just played with the wind and light, and had so much fun getting these photos of Kate.
