Beautiful Heather

This is my cousin Heather. She's getting married and I got to take her engagement and bridal photos.


It was so much fun! Not only did it give me the opportunity to get to know her awesome fiance, Mark, but I got to try out a new location for the bridals and flex my creative muscle.

Heather and I have always been close, even during times when our very different ages and lives prevented us from seeing each other for long periods of time. I tried to pick only my favorite photos, but I had too many!! I took about 160 photos and have narrowed it down to my favorite 30. Here are 16 of my favorite 30. :-)
















This is my favorite one. I could stare at it for hours. Isn't she gorgeous? I love the photos on the metal staircase, it's that contrast of soft beauty and cold steel. So cool.
The sun was in a bad place, so there were a lot of harsh shadows, which ruined a lot of the shots, but there are so many great ones, I don't care now!

Thanks for the fun photo shoots Heather and Jackie (my aunt), I loved my time with you.

Good Luck Heather and Mark!

Okay, so I had to take a peek when I saw a couple of the pictures at Sheryls house. They are beautiful! Makes me want to be the bride again. (To be princess for a day, how fun!!)

BEAUTIFUL! Great job! I love the ones on the cement stairs too. The contrast is great. I really like the one with the all metals poles going down to the ground. The lines in it are so cool. Very well done. Great creativity.

I saw these at the bridal shower on Saturday and Heath-o was talking about how great you did. And, WOW, you did a great job! She left yesterday for Hawaii. She won't be back until 9 days before the wedding!!! Crazy!
