The best thing about photographing close friends is that they will do pretty much anything for you;)) If you know me at all, you know that mornings are not my favorite thing in the world. However, the lighting is fantastically diffused, making it ideal for photographing! Ergo, this early morning photoshoot. I met Shea in high school and she is now one of my best friends. Such a good friend that she gladly showed up at my front door before the sun was awake and let me photograph her in the dewy morning cold. We had the deal: I’d provide the coffee and she’d provide the modeling (and I’m so glad she did)! We picked out the florals together and came up with a simple concept for this bridal-inspired shoot, keeping it relaxed and romantic. I also used this opportunity to do a bit of experimental photography as you’ll see below–a bit of a different approach than traditional bridal portraits. Enjoy!
