Today’s the day! It’s my second wedding in a row at the LBJ WFC , and again the bride and I did a bridal session a couple of weeks ago. As usual she didn’t want me to show the photos on line so her fiancée wouldn’t see her in her dress before the big day and I always respect the wishes of my clients. But since today is the wedding day, I can publish this post these wedding photos on the internet and share them with the world.
She came with her mother, and was all ready for the session when I arrived. Looking absolutely perfect in her Monique Lhuillier wedding gown, she had a sample bouquets and her grandmother’s parasol as props. We spent about 40 minutes walking around some of the most beautiful areas in the Wildflower center. I used a combination of film and digital cameras during this session, can you tell which ones are which? I think it’s pretty clear. (hint: look at the skin tones – the warm, creamy, natural colors are real film).
If you are looking for a great place in Austin for your portraits, the Ladybird Johnson Wildflower center is hard to beat. In fact just the other day, I was reading that Austin is becoming a great destination wedding city – kind of strange, but true. I never thought about destination weddings in Austin, but now that I do, the Wildflower center is one of those incredible outdoor venues that is all the rage right now.
Of course bridals are included in all of my packages, and I also offer stand alone (ala carte) bridals if you are interested. All sessions come with a CD of the original files, and a print release, AND a framed 11×16 print that you can display at the wedding, too. Contact me for more info.
The nice backlight highlights her hair and gives the photos an angel glow.
Warm, natural skin tones like this can only be captured using Fuji Film. I know because I've tried everything else.
One of my the best places in Austin for Bridals is the LBJ WFC
Traditional bridal portrait poses include a full length portrait
I just love the light angle and look in this bridal shot
