Runaway Bride : “The Amusement Park” • Missouri Wedding Photographer

So a few years ago I decided that I had to visit an abandoned amusement park, I just had to. And in doing so I wanted to photograph a bride, you know that whole beautiful on old type of thing. Anyway everything came together this last Sunday when Christy, a beautiful model from Kansas city and I ventured out to an abandoned amusement park and created the images below! The day was hot and the conditions of the park were pretty rough, but we made the best of everything, because after all how many chances do you get to photograph something like this! Amanda from Last Tangle Salon, did the amazing work you see below on Christy’s hair, she’s fabulous too by the way! And the dress, well the dress was Christy’s so that came in quite handy.  Oh and I can’t forget the cotton candy, finding white cotton candy in general is quite the task but Papa John’s Peanuts made my idea come to life with their vanilla cotton candy, it’s quite delicious too!

Overall the images were more than I could have hoped for! “The Amusement Park” is another part to my series Runaway Bride! I’m thrilled that this series is taking shape and can only imagine how it will evolve throughout the few styled shoots I have scheduled over the next year!
