A bridal session with Kati

You may remember Nic and Kati, from our engagement shoot back in January. Here’s one of their photos from that shoot.

Nic & Kati in Little Rock

Well, I had no idea how much fun we’d have shooting Kati’s bridal portraits. I spoke with her about the possibility of doing something really weird and she loved the sound of it. I’m thrilled with the results. She and her mother showed up here with three dresses…. a beautiful wedding gown, her dress that she would leave the reception in and one more. The last one was a dress that we could do anything we wanted with. I wanted to get in the water at Pigeon Creek on Lake Norfork. We did.

We started the shoot out with a pretty traditional session of outdoor portraits in Kati’s real wedding dress. She made the dress look absolutely incredible.

Then we took her to the least likely spot anybody would want to have their photo taken,,,, and it turned out some smoking photographs. It didn’t hurt though, that Kati looked amazingly hot in her dress.

And finally, we made it through one more change of clothes at the studio and headed off for the lake as the sun was setting. I’m pretty sure Kati’s mom thought we were all nuts, and she may have been correct. I’ll also admit that I was a bit nervous wading around in the lake with all the camera equipment…. as digital cameras aren’t too forgiving after they’ve gone for a swim. Luckily, the only things that got soaked were my jeans, Trisha’s pants and Kati’s dress. Oh, there was the incident of Kati splashing water and possibly getting some in her mouth. I’m amazed at what she was willing to do for some great photographs.

So, here are a few of my favorites from the lake. The first one is one of a series that we took in the wooded area that lines the shore and the final three are of her actually in the water.
