So while these are actually from a few months back, we've been holding onto them because the (then) bride-to-be wanted to ensure everything remained a surprise for the big day. Now that the wedding has officially passed, it's finally safe to put them up without worrying the groom will catch an unauthorized peek at the bride beforehand....and don't worry, we've got lots of shots from the wedding, too, that are soon to follow.
Meet the bride-to-be (at least at the time). We had a lot of fun with her and her beau during their engagement photo session last fall in North Little Rock, so when she tossed out the idea of some bridal portraits with a country twist, we jumped at the chance. Fortunately, some of her family friends had just the spot down the road in Sheridan. While it was a bit of a drive for her, it's a pretty short haul out of East End, so on a bright and sunny Saturday afternoon, we charged up the power packs, gathered up the lenses, and headed out for what turned out to be quite the entertaining bridal session.
This country girl wasted no time heading right out to the barn where she knew she wanted a few pictures, and we couldn't help but catch a few with her boots in the scene. Other than worrying about keeping that gorgeous white dress out of the dirt and mud, she really was open to moving around just about anywhere to take full advantage of everything...barns, bridges, fields, even a tractor...we hit them all that afternoon. Did we mention tractors???
Yes, she did climb up on the tractor in the dress.....and if we'd had the keys, she probably would have driven it up to the barn. Instead, we all did our best to ensure nothing snagged or drug across the tractor as she got up and down. Who'd have thought white dresses and tractors could get along so well without making a lot of stains?!?!
As the day wore on, things started to cool off. Luckily, though, she was up for sticking around a little longer as the sun moved into position to provide a little bit of back/hair lighting as well for us.
As all good things eventually do, though, this shoot did come to an end, but not before we caught quite a few good shots and walked away with a happy bride. A very special thanks goes out to her for being so willing to go out on a limb with an idea like this. Most brides wouldn't dare such a thing before the big day, but it certainly made a great day for a great day on location. Check back with us soon. We'll be making a follow-up to this post with several from the big day as well. Until then......
