Rebekah: bridal portraits :D :D {shelter gardens, columbia, mo bridal portrait photographer}



My super great friends Jase and Rebekah are finally married as of last Saturday (if you haven't seen my sneak peeks from their wedding, PLEASE do so here, here, and here), so NOW I can share Rebekah's AMAZING bridal shoot from the end of August!! It was a dream to capture my beautiful, special friend in the morning light, and Shelter Gardens was the perfect place to do it :). So sit back, relax, and enjoy :).

Now, Rebekah is an artist (a SUPER creative, unique, and thoughtful artist; there's no one like her) Knowing that, it was no surprise to me that she had some really neat conceptual pictures she wanted to create :D. Her job is graphic design, so at some point she's going to be making something REALLY cool with the images we did specifically for her concepts and probably some of the regular ones too that ended up fitting what she wants to create, but for now, here are the pictures by themselves :) (the next three are a few of the specific concept pictures).

When we walked over to this tree, it reminded me of a place in the Shire. Rebekah said "Yeah! And I always tell Jase 'I'll be your Rosie Cotton' 'cause he's like Sam." :D :D

Love <3. And this quilt was made by Jase's grandmother who passed away in April. A special addition to the shoot.

Then my mom (who assisted me) threw some of the rose petals at her. Haha :D.

These images of Rebekah you captured are beautiful. It's fun seeing her as herself. She is stunning and silly and stunning. I love that about her. And I was blessed to be the gopher that day. It was a blast!!!!
