“A beautiful couple is walking up the steep trail at Enchanted Rock. He is in a perfectly fitted suit and she is in a gorgeous white wedding dress that’s flowing in the wind. If that sight doesn’t beg to be captured on camera, I don’t know what will! Princess and David dressed up in their full wedding attire for this newlywed shoot. This was a unique opportunity to take wedding photos in a spectacular location!
Princess and David booked me over a year ago, but due to special circumstances, they decided to get married privately instead. However, their love is still so worth capturing, so we decided to wait a while and do a shoot in their formal wear later on.
We met at Enchanted Rock for a day of hiking and taking photos. They were very nervous when we started, but they broke out of their shell quickly. Everything looked like a real-life fairytale. The bouquet, the flowing white fabric, the chivalrous gestures of David as he helped his bride along the way – and sometimes the other way around too. ???? I’ve walked this trail quite a few times, but never in formal attire, let alone a long wedding dress or heels! I have a whole new level of admiration for Princess and David!
The walk up to the summit was already quite picture-worthy, as they held hands and carried the picnic basket with them. At the top of the mountain, they opened the champagne bottle, had a little picnic, and let me take more photos with a stunning view as the backdrop.
I haven’t had this much fun in a while! Because this wasn’t a traditional wedding shoot in the midst of a full day, I had way more time to play around with different lenses. I even got my film camera out! Princess and David are such a gift to each other, and I’m so glad they picked me to photograph them.”
