Now that the wedding day is behind us and the big reveal has occurred, you’ve really got to get an up close and personal looks at Megan’s dress!  It’s so much fun and I’m so glad to finally get to share her bridal session with you all!  Here are a few of my favorites…

The dress made it through the session without a speck, but getting this shot brought it dangerously close to some serious muddage. (For those who are wondering, adding “age” to the end of words is my newest favorite descriptive device.  Sean prefers “ocity.”  For example: “Megan’s dress was dangerously close to some serious mudocity.”  And now you know – we are weird.) 




This is my favorite time of day at the Parthenon.  The lines are so great!




So I’ve realized that all of my favorites are ones where Megan looks way serious but she’s got such a strong, sultry look doesn’t she?  This one is here to show you that she’s also a super sweet person and I just like it too. :o)



This is my favorite Centennial Park garden image ever!  You have to climb through the flowers and plant the dress in the mulch to get it but it’s so worth it!


Thanks for looking! :o)

    you’re not your job.
    you’re not how much money you have in the bank.
    you’re not the car you drive.
    you’re not the contents of your wallet.
    you’re not your flippin khakis.
    you’re the all-singing all- dancing king and queen of photography!!!!!!

    my favorite the the 2nd to last photo at the edge of the water….beautiful golden light falling on her face! keep up the awesome work, thanks for sharing!

  8. Mel Watson on June 19, 2008 at 8:53 am

    Last image… best image ever!!!! Its got the flowerocity and flowerage all over it! That dress is hot too… love the detail on it. Awesome session guys. :)

  9. Jo on June 19, 2008 at 10:07 am

    I have to agree with Mel Watson that the last image totally rocks. I love the flowers repeating the flowerage on the dress- so cool, conceptually and visually.

    what a great session! love the composition with the water reflection, fantastic work!

  11. mary crow on June 19, 2008 at 2:52 pm

    beautiful bride, beautiful photos…I love the one with the foxglove.

  12. chris scott on June 19, 2008 at 4:14 pm

    These are amazing! LOVE that first shot with the reflection!
    I just shot an engagement session out at the parthenon yesterday at about the same time of day these look like they were taken… isn’t that light GREAT!?!
    Anyway, fantastic work, as usual!

  14. jess on June 19, 2008 at 7:22 pm

    these are all gorgeous but i LOVE the reflection shots, i am a huge fan of reflections :) awesome work as usual!

  15. DoDaDay on June 20, 2008 at 7:54 am

    You guys aren’t so hot! I found some photographers better than you. I wrote their names down on a piece of paper & put it on my desk. OK…here it is. Nope, that’s the grocery list. There it is, Rats….that’s my “honey do” list. I’ll dig through the trash___& be right back_________not there either. Perhaps, the dog carried it away. As soon as I find it, I’ll post for all your fans to see that think you’re so awesome.

    I have to say, I’m going to go against the grain of all these comments… and say my favorite is the 3rd from the bottom. In that one, its all about the Bride… and it really shows. I think when you really see into the subjects eyes and see a “glow” in the face, the viewer develops a connection with the subject on a more personal level. Excellent shot. Love it.

  17. Mel Watson on June 20, 2008 at 12:18 pm

    Um… who is this “Bradford Watson” ?? Hes getting all emotional and deep and “connecting” with your work. What is that??? What have you guys done to my husband?!?!

  18. Dell on June 20, 2008 at 10:15 pm

    I totally love the first picture with the water! It’s amazing! Plus, I love that talked about “age” and “ocity”! We totally had that conversation! I still like “ish”, but I don’t think that “ish” would work well with mud, mudish?

  19. david & kimi b ~ ohana photography on June 23, 2008 at 2:40 pm

    hahaha, mel’s comment cracked me up, but yes you cannot help but feel as one with these images ;)

  20. Fuller Edge Photography on June 24, 2008 at 9:11 am

    Love, love, LOVE them all! I can’t pick a favorite – they’re all so good! Great job!

  21. mel on June 27, 2008 at 1:09 pm

  22. adrian hitt on June 27, 2008 at 2:56 pm
