Maryann: No Holds Bridal



That shot above is killing me - Maryann looks SO FREAKING HOT, right?!

"No Holds Bridal" is my version of the popular trend "Trash the Dress". Maryann and Lauren are already married, but wanted a chance to put their dresses back on for a photo shoot without worrying about getting them dirty.

When these two told me they wanted to come up to Charlotte from Anderson, SC to do a shoot, I was beyond thrilled. Since we were going to do them on the same day, I enlisted help from my good friend Candice of The Beautiful Mess.

Having done their boudoir sessions for their husbands the day before the shoot, they were ready to bring it....and they SO did. We started the day with hair and makeup by the amazingly talented (and sweet as they come) Kymm from Who's the Fairest. I actually stepped out to run a few errands while they got dolled up and when I called to check on them, Maryann says to me, "I haven't even gotten my hair and makeup done yet and I am having THE best time."

Maryann is such a country girl. So it seemed only appropriate that we spend some time shooting in some fields and around a barn. Lucky for us, I had recently been told about a cool barn-like structure really close to our other locations. I like to call it "The Urban Barn". And you wouldn't believe the light we had to work with.....every couple frames I would shout at her, "oh my GOSH...you are SO going to love these!"

Alright - enough chatter...her she is - the beautiful Maryann.























Can someone out there PLEASE book this place to have their reception and then hire me to shoot it? Thanks a bunch. :) But seriously - this place is available for rent. I think it would be a great space for country wedding in an urban part of Charlotte - with a great wedding planner, I know this place could look phenomenal. Shoot me an email if you are a bride looking for a reception site and would like the contact information for it! cheyenne@cheyenneschultz.com
