This was a great session all around. Actually, every portrait session I have had with Dana has been awesome. I shot a one of a kind cross-fit engagement of Dana & Elvis a little while back. You can view those photos here. We met up at the Capitol yesterday afternoon for some fun bridal photos of Dana. Although the images are not in the order that I took them, this is how I envisioned the images side by side. The last 3 photos in the series are flash composites that were taken at the very beginning of the shoot. The sky was looking really cool yesterday afternoon, and the lighting could have not been better for a dramatic set like this. I love shooting dark, studio lit images at every session, and I am very pleased when they turn out like these did. After that, the majority of the photos were shot with full on natural lighting. I loved that Dana decided to wear her “red chucks” for this session. It made the photos so fun and playful, that it just puts a smile on your face. I believe that she is planning on sporting them on her wedding day as well. Dana and Elvis are tying the knot this coming September at Mercury Hall in south Austin. I am super excited to shoot their wedding, and I can imagine that it will be a ton of fun. Livia Pope with All Dolled Up did a wonderful job with Dana’s hair and makeup for this session. You can visit her website here for more information about her services. Here is a small collection from Dana’s awesome Capital bridal session, taken right here in Austin, TX. Enjoy the preview, and keep an eye out for their wedding photos in the near future!
