Yesterday I had the incredibly entertaining honor of photographing the lovely Jessica for her bridal portraits, and the Dallas Arboretum served as a beautiful backdrop for this beautiful bride-to-be. Even though we started a bit late, and then even later because of a forgotten bouquet, the session really could not have gone any better. And the minor mishaps were just good practice for the Big Day, which is literally a month away from yesterday. Jessica brought along her mother-in-law-to-be, Rita. I think this small gesture speaks volumes about the kind of easy-going, genuinely good girl Jessica is, and I know these two will share many more memorable moments over the years. Rita, thank you for your outstanding assistance yesterday; the petite powerhouse was hurdling fences, holding reflectors and also managed to play hair and make-up assistant to the lovely bride. As the temperatures climbed higher and higher, and we all began to melt faster and faster, Jessica stayed calm, cool and collected. There is not one ounce of Diva in this young lady, and she was game for any idea I threw at her. Jessica, you were absolutely gorgeous, even in 95 degree temps! I know you will make the loveliest of brides. Best of luck to you in this last month, and thank you for allowing me to be a part of this journey! Enjoy your summer off, and your sneaky to the peeky!
