A Gorgeous & Rustic "Day After" Wedding Session at the farm with a white horse

Today's couple, Sara and David married on a European cruise surrounded by a few family members and close friends. While they did have a photographer on board, once they came back home, they realized they didn't have enough photos of them together and wanted to capture more. So, they contacted Arina B Photography and headed to the farm where they were surrounded by the most amazing white horse, dogs, cows, lots of hay and sunshine. Arina writes . . . "For me as a photographer, the Day After session or Trash the dress session is the happiest of all, simply because I get to take photos of a beautiful bride and groom without wedding rush, stress and time line. This session makes a perfect anniversary present as well. Couples get to refresh their sweet wedding memories and capture more photos of that gorgeous dress the bride is no longer afraid to get dirty!"

Rustic bridal portraits in Jackson, Mississippi with handmade bouquet

I'm loving today's rustic bridal session from Amanda Hill Photography that took place in beautiful Mynelle Gardens in Jackson, Mississippi.

Oh, and that gorgeously sweet bouquet? The bride made it herself . . . AMAZING!!!!!!

Real Bridal : a stunning take on the non-traditional portraits

I love it when a reader emails to share their photos with me. Today's stunning bridals are from Jennifer who wanted to share her take on the non-traditional bridal portraits. I LOVE these. The photographers {TJ and Michelle Getz of Getz Creative in Greenville, SC} captured Jennifer's contemporary bridal portraits perfectly. The photos were inspired by Vogue and other popular fashion magazines. This particular photo shoot makes use of a Hemingway African Chair, a top hat, a chic italian sofa and a beautifully tiled shower.
