Runaway Bride : Winter Retreat • Destination Wedding Photographer

Nothing says beauty like a Lazaro wedding dress. Yes, one of my favorite designers shows up on a styled shoot, you can bet it’s going to be a masterpiece of a day! To add to this beautiful gown my wonderful friend Mallory created one stunning brooch bouquet, which is for sale :). But it was not all sunshine and puppy dogs, the weather was a completely different story. I brought along an assistant, not just to help with the dress and lighting but to hold an umbrella, this was a first. The rain it fell, all afternoon, and the skies that scary shade of grey . But we had everything lined up and the shoot was in Kansas city, so we all braved the cold rainy day and created some amazing images!

For this segment of the Runaway Bride series, I wanted to go European, winter, just overall a cold distant feeling. I know a little sad, but there’s still beauty in the cold days of winter as you can see below!



A big thank you goes out to everyone involved :

Amanda Pogue – Stylist at Last Tangle Salon

Brittany – Model and Provider of Wedding Dress

Kayla – Assistant

Mallory Taulbee – Bouquet
