Bridals are one of my absolute favorite things to shoot. The beautiful dresses, fancy hair and makeup, the list could go on forever!
When Kelsey and I were talking about what kind of vibe she wanted for her bridals/formal session she said she wanted GLAM GLAM GLAM. She wanted them inside and somewhere FABULOUS. Taking all she had told me into consideration I boggled my brain for the perfect location. Luckily I had just been to the McCune Mansion the week before and fallen in love.
The mansion was built in 1898 and cost a whopping $1,000,000 clear back then. It has been amazingly taken care of and has the most amazing character. The second she told me what she wanted I knew it would be perfect. I told her all about it the next week and she loved the idea. Thankfully we were able to get a reservation and the rest is history.
It was so cute to see Devin’s reaction when he turned around to his gorgeous bride to be for the first time. He couldn’t keep his eyes or his hands off her. First looks are another thing I love to shoot. I know a lot of people who are trying to steer away from them, but I think they are adorable.
I think it is so fun to see both of their reactions. Him seeing her for the first time and her seeing his reaction. I feel like it sets the whole mood for the entire session. Girls want their men to ooooo and ahhhhh over how gorgeous they look in their gown. If they get a good reaction their confidence is set for the rest of the shoot.
The old archways and dark wood made for the perfect setting. Old Hollywood glam is the only way I could explain it. Kelseys gorgeous gown and Devins daper duds… Everything was exactly what I had hoped it would be.
