Most people who read/follow/whatever our blog have seen Kristen and Brian’s fabulous faces before. We shot their engagement session last winter, and we shot their record-breaking-awesome wedding in July. At some point during the wedding planning process, they told us about this place where they carved their names when they were like 15 years old. They thought it would be really cool to go back (12 years later) in their wedding clothes, to the spot where they carved their names and have us take some shots there! Isn’t that just the most adorable thing you’ve ever heard? They are such amazing people, and so much fun to work with, so we were absolutely head-over-heels excited about shooting another session with them!
These types of sessions are most commonly referred to as “trash the dress” sessions; but, I really don’t think that term describes what we were doing at all. Honestly? The dress didn’t get any dirtier that it did on the actual wedding day, so there was no “trashing” going on whatsoever. Since this was our first couple who were willing (brave enough) to throw their wedding day clothes back on and hang out with us for an awesome post-wedding photo session, we are officially naming it “rock the dress” in honor of Kristen, because she rocked that dress like whoa.
If you were previously one of those brides who thought they would never put the dress back on for something like this, perhaps the following photos will change your mind…
Right? You’re changing your mind already, aren’t you…I can feel it. :)
This spot was the foundation upon which this entire shoot was built. We’ve seen the original high-school version of this shot, and while it’s definitely adorable, I think our version wins. I love it! It’s perfect; definitely an important part of a wildly romantic love story, with a very happy ending. :)
Hello, AMAZING!! This shot is so money.
We did a few solo bride shots, because Kristen is just too beautiful for words.
…and…HOLD THE PHONE…smokin’ hot!!! Isn’t she gorgeous? I’m actually at a loss for words due to her gorgeousness…
I’m not gonna lie…I’m pretty proud of this one.
This shot was pretty kick-ass, too.
We’ll leave you with this shot of Kristen, modeling the most acceptable footwear for a “rock the dress” session in a marsh!
K + B – We love you guys to the moon and back!! Thanks so much for everything! Hope you love these as much as we do! :)
Everyone else – If you want to do a “rock the dress” session, give us a holla (you know you want one)!!
