Andrea and Paul’s wedding in Plano, Texas at Event 1013 has arrived and I am FINALLY able to share this gorgeous session with you. They really are some of my favorites. I talked with Andrea at our initial wedding consult and ideas about what she and Paul envisioned for thier wedding photography started over-flowing my mind and I thought I may need to pinch myself during the meeting. These two are filled with chemistry, emotion and fun. During the engagement session we found ourselves at one of their favorite places to hang out and they brought along one of their favorite things to do together….their bikes! Incorporating their bikes into the session was genius. It told who they were and what they like to do together.
It came time to talk about our bridal session and I already knew Paul would be there. They still wanted to have a “first look” so the next few images were them seeing each other for the first time in with Andrea in her wedding dress….her stunning perfect for her wedding dress! Seriously, she’s stunning. Scroll down and see for yourself. Paul has a beloved truck and they wanted to bring it to the session, but the broken windshield had other plans for us that day. Andrea and Paul enjoy star-gazing, so Paul brought out one of his antique telescopes and we were able to have fun with it.Â Andrea’s grandmother made an afghan for them and she wont be around to make to the wedding. They wanted to incorporate her memory in their images. I asked them to wrap themselves in it and the symbolism (to me at least) is that she is hugging them, providing warmth and an overall comfort to them.
We rounded out the session with Andrea in her wedding shawl and some off-camera lighting.
