In December I made a mini road-trip to Asheville to shoot Lisette's bridal portraits. Asheville is always one of my favorite places for a shoot because of the natural beauty of the land and the quirkiness and charm of the downtown. The rainy, slightly foggy day added to the atmosphere at the Botanical Gardens at Asheville, and I had fun pushing myself to create photos that were moodier and more unexpected.
Lisette was a really fun bride to work with because of her beautiful, unique feature (I am envious of her gorgeous blue eyes!) When I met Lisette during our time at UNC Chapel Hill she had awesome dreads, which she cut a few months before her wedding. Her new haircut made for awesome photos because it wasn't the typical "bridal updo" that I see over and over. Her flowy JCrew wedding dress was also perfect for the environment and made for some really pretty profile pictures.
Lisette, thank you so much for your hospitality to me during your bridal shoot. I had fun getting to know your best friend and your parents, and I enjoyed our time watching Netflix and hanging out afterwards. Thanks for being a trooper with the cold weather during our shoot! Your mom was extremely helpful during the shoot carrying both of our things, and one of my favorite pictures from the day is you laughing with her as she walks across the field while talking on the phone and carrying tons of stuff! I hope you had fun and I can't wait to share the wedding photos in my next post.
