BRIDALS | Julie at West Manor Estate

Julie got engaged to her fiance' Jonathan earlier that spring (see their engagement session here!) and had planned their wedding day for the upcoming Labor Day weekend!  Their fantastic wedding venue - West Manor Estate, allowed us to photograph there for her bridal session! At the end of our session, the sun was going down brilliantly over the fields in the back of the manor!  Some vintage birdcage wedding decor and some personal decor created a styled scene to match their special day!  Julie's gown from David's Bridal was a perfect fit for her - subtle, sweet, and a bit of sparkle!  Julie is a southern girl from North Carolina and of course we had to include her cowboy boots for a few images!

I have to give a little shout out to Cardinal Camera for letting me borrow a beautiful Canon 85mm 1.2 lens for this session!  The images really turned out fantastic and I now have to save up for great glass of my own :-)!

*Note for future brides to be: Bridal sessions are a fantastic way to run through your hair and makeup and see how it looks before the big day!
