I’ll be honest with you guys – I’m feeling a little brain dead in terms of writing out a full blog post as of late, but I also hate just leaving ya hanging. I haven’t consistently updated my blog in a while and while it’s something that I want to get back into, I’m not hard-pressed about it right now. I decided to pick a simple, fun topic to write about and as I was brainstorming I realized I never shared my best friend’s bridal portraits from last fall. WHAT.
Her session happened when my website, blog and all, was at the tail end of being under construction so I tucked the idea in my back pocket for later. Well, later is now, my friends.
Julie is one of my dearest friends and I know it in my heart that we will be friends until the day our Abba calls us home. I’ve known her for about 20 years now. My earliest memories of life include her – She was my “first” friend.
When I think about the day we met, I see two little girls, one very shy (her) and one just wanting to know if there were any Barbies to play with (me). Our dads, in an interesting story of their own, became best friends and introduced us to each other when we were very little. We were even neighbors for a while! I still remember walking through the paths cut through the woods between our homes to visit each other. There were sleep overs, silly games, silly fights (probably mostly my fault) and they all created so many fun memories that I will cherish forever.
A new memory I’m excited to add to our friendship timeline is the season of planning her wedding. I had so much fun watching her try on 14 wedding dresses and having the privilege of documenting her in her chosen gown was a dream, y’all.
Julie is so laid back and a country girl at heart so what better place to take her bridals than home sweet home? This happens to be my childhood home as well so I went back to my roots; an old dirt road (actually named Old Creek Road) a farm, and a cow pasture to make some magic happen. Her portraits were taken in the cow pasture which is huge so the cows weren’t near us while we were shooting (*sad face* I love cows). It was honestly so perfect that I couldn’t have suggested a better location so without further ado, here is a peak into her bridal gallery.
I hope ya’ll enjoyed scrolling through these as much as as I enjoyed sharing them with you. I don’t talk about wedding related shoots often, but I love love and enjoy documenting authentic love stories.
