Elena was a very unusal bride for me, but so incredible to work with! She had a beautiful wedding last year in Charleston, SC (which I did not photograph), however, she never had bridal portraits taken. After finding me through Carolina Bride we began talking, and set a date for her bridals at the gorgeous Duke Mansion. Kymm McLean from Who’s the Fairest was absolutely amazing (as usual), and was able to replicate Elena’s hair and makeup from her wedding day. Not only do I admire Elena for waiting to get the bridal’s that she wanted, I commend her for doing it right! The day was perfectly overcast, and the rain held out just long enough for us to travel the grounds to get some breathtaking images. Enjoy!
