I had the amazing pleasure of taking bridal portraits for one of my best friends a few months back and it was amazing! Tracy, her mom and me traveled all around her hometown scoping sights, sipping Route 44 Sonic drinks and eating Whataburger. I had so much fun and the pictures turned out great!
Doesn’t she look stunning?! I loved the flooring on the steps of their old courthouse. Such a pretty place with lots of trees and flowers.
Tracy made that paper flower bouquet herself. She’s the craftiest person I know – I wish some of that would rub off.
We also ventured over to a very interesting mural on the side of one of the older buildings downtown. I’m not sure why the artist chose this as their masterpiece but it’s a doozy.
After that interesting stop, we walked around side streets where I found some beautiful light. This house was absolutely gorgeous and evidently historic. I just love the trees, fencing and brick steps.
Our last stop was their community park where this wonderful ivy covered wall caught my attention. We did look kind of awkward since it was at a restaurant but, hey, you catch the light where you can.
One of my last pictures ended up being my favorite from the day. The dramatic light and spanish moss is exactly what I was looking for and I couldn’t have asked for more…except maybe not standing in a drainage ditch on a huge mound of dirt. I was playing crouching photographer, hidden snake hunter. Totally worth it.
Thanks for being such a good sport and amazing friend, Tracy! I know I embarassed you all around town but I hope it was worth it. Love your guts, kiddo!
Be on the lookout for her wedding pictures in next week or two! Leave Tracy some love below
