Vintage Stylized Bridal - Christine Nelson
"It was just miles and miles of wild grass and wild flowers!"
One day, as I was leaving from my moms house after stopping by for a nice family dinner. I noticed this beautiful field right next to the neighborhood, It was just miles and miles of wild grass and wild flowers! It hit me that this would be the perfect place for a shoot, and since then i have been trying to plan the perfect shoot at this location. And along came the perfect candidate, Christine Nelson, an actor, model, and the 'perfect candidate'.
"See the problem was I saw this field about a month or more ago"
Christine was such a trooper throughout the entire shoot. See the problem was I saw this field about a month or more ago, and the grass was about a little below knee high. On the day of the shoot, was a different story.. we are looking at thigh high now HAHA.
"She had the perfect 'look'. I had visioned a vintage dark bride."
Regardless of the itchy grass, the difficulty walking through the dense Greenery, and unknown bugs. Christine did a great job, She had the perfect 'look', I had visioned a vintage dark bride. I wanted something innocent yet grown, seductive. And she matched it perfectly. I don't know if its because of her acting skills, but I instructed. And she delivered!
"Her eyes glowed in the mist of all the greenery."
We took a couple of her laying down into the wild flowers. I loved how the green leaves contrasted with her fair skin. Her eyes glowed in the mist of all the greenery. And her little fear of bugs was a great motivator for giving that perfect innocent look!
"There were so many good images from this session, I am obsessed!"
There were so many good images from this session, I am obsessed! I had brought three crates that i wanted her to sit on amongst the fields. Initially I thought maybe i only needed 2, but I am so happy I got three because I definitely did not anticipate the grass itself to cover 1.5 of the boxes!
"Did I mention that she made this beautiful headpiece?"
Did I mention that she made this beautiful headpiece? Everything in this shoot pulled so well together from the model, to the clothing, to the make up, and definitely the location! Thank you so much for your hard work Christine! You rocked it GIRL!
