A week ago today i took a vacation day because my most awesome cousin/photographer Lauren flew into town from her new home state of North Carolina. It was time for my bridal portraits. What what!!!
It was so exciting to have my hair all done up, i even wore eyeshadow and thats a big deal y'all! My dress and shoes all looked great and so we headed over to my wedding destination of the winery. One note to self along the way- must have car with large backseat for me to get there on wedding day. Just not enough room for me and dress in passenger seat of my pickup truck.
I had taken a Mucinex DM before we got started so that my nose wouldnt be as red and snotty for a few hours and it worked so i'm so grateful for that. I had so much fun having my pictures taken but i sure wish i felt better. Anyway, Lauren and i were there a little over an hour and we got some really fun pictures taken. It was good for Lauren to see what the lighting and scenarios will be also the day of wedding. I cant show you any of the bridal portraits until after the wedding of course because i have to leave some surprises. Todd also stumbles on my blog every now and then and we are doing the traditional thing of him not seeing me in my dress. Funny story, Lauren was driving my truck so that i could sit with my dress all around me in the passenger seat and as we are leaving the apartment , Todd drives into the complex. He knew what we were doing but he had momentarily forgot because he pulled next to us and rolled down his window. I put my hands over my face and ducked down and then he realized and said " Oh crap i got to keep going". It was so funny at the moment.
Here are some ideas and pictures from Pinterest that i am using or considering.
