Leigh’s Get [Glamorous] Bridals
Meeting Leigh was a complete fluke… Her inquiry email had accidentally gotten pushed into my Spam folder (it happens!). Well, like any responsible photographer I emailed her even though it had been a month since she had inquired. Well, her first message was very polite and informed me that she had already hired her photographer… her second email was to say that her photographer was going to be unable to photograph their wedding, and she wanted to discuss me photographing it instead. A few emails and phone calls later, and we were on! The wedding this last weekend was a beautiful ceremony and reception held at their home in Hickory with 50 of their closest friends and family. I loved getting to share in their special day… and have definitely become more paranoid about checking my Spam folder more often… you never know!
I will never forget what a good sport Leigh, her Mom and sister were for piling in my truck and trekking through the mud to get to this location. It was seriously the only spot with peach blossoms that we could find! And I love that Leigh trusted me enough to create not just the typical bridal portraits, but a work of art as well.
Being able to create images like this one is why I love the term “fine art wedding photographer.” This is one of those images that you can hang on your wall for years; and while it remains timeless, it is a work of art featuring you.
