So remember me blogging about taking a trip south to meet up with some pals I’ve met on a forum? Well…. anyway… we did three shoots that weekend. A portrait swap with the members. A bridal session in Deep Ellum. And a Day After (I call these Extreme Bridals) session. We went to the Old McKinney Cotton Mill . Ok, so I was warned that it’d be hot weather. I mean, it was Dallas for gosh sakes.
But the shoot took place INSIDE…unairconditioned…wooden rooms surrounded by windows full of unforgiving sunlight…and I cannot express to you how much I was sweating. But I wasn’t alone. If every shoot could go as well as this one did though, I’d sweat that much any day!! 🙂
Meet Drew & Sarah. They were married earlier this year, Stacy Reeves was their photographer for the BIG day. They donned their bridal apparel one more time though so we photographers could have at it…
They aren’t professional models. Though they should be. The camera just eats them up.
This is one of my faves from teh day. I love they way they are looking at one another. And I love the way their fingers are interlaced.
A sweet moment. Spiced up even more with some texture…
I felt like I was prying when I’d watch them. They had so much chemistry. Electric.
Check out the scene. Rustic, no? Sigh.
We experimented with some off-camera lighting. I LOVE it. I might just have to use it more.
Hot enough for you?
Another of my faves. I tell you, every freaking room at this place was rife with model-icious possibilities.
Same place, different perspective.
Are you kidding me? She’s darling!
I had some fun with a wide angle lens.
A lil’ backlighting…
He’s a prisoner… or something. haha
Oh! And Drew owns his own company…he custom makes suits. In fact, while we were in Dallas, Neil got fitted and ordered two!!! SOOO EXCITED. Check him out: D. Jones Collection
Drew & Sarah… thank you soooooo much for enduring the heat and the paparazzi-like conditions. 🙂 You gave me some beautiful images (and I updated my blogger header with you!!) and I am forever grateful. I wish you both the best of luck in life and love.
