Bridal Portraits

Today, I just felt the need to brag on my husband a bit. :)

Kendall is a very talented photographer, but he doesn't shoot much.
His passion is teaching people how to use their cameras and he loves learning the camera
from the inside out. He also works all the time (at a camera shop) and doesn't have much time for photo shoots.
However, when he does get the time....he goes all out. I'm so proud of this man.

Kendall's dream was to shoot his wife's bridal portraits. I fought him on this for months because I didn't  want him to see me until the wedding day. Well, I gave in and he got his way. In the end, I wouldn't change it for anything. He did such a great job and it was so much fun. He put in so much hard work and I really felt how much he loved me as he photographed me through his view finder.

All of this shoot was his idea. I bought the ivory vintage for $40 at a resale shop and he wanted to do an environmental shot in a swamp. We trekked out into a swamp with couch and photography equipment in hand. Don't worry, we had a lot of help to pull this off without getting dirty.
We set the couch up in the middle of a swamp and my mom put my dress on me while I sat on the couch.

Kendall went to work and did his thing.

I was very impressed with the results and the time he put into these. We will probably take more pictures for our one year...maybe a trash the dress shoot?


P.S. don't forget about the December button swap!! I'd love to have you! email me if interested:
