Kristy: Bridal Portrait



I've been DYING to post Kristy's portraits ever since we took them. Growing up, Kristy was a big time dancer - so it was an easy decision for her to shoot at the theatre she used to perform at - the Steven's Center in Winston-Salem.

Shooting at this location really gave Geoff and I the chance to stretch ourselves a bit and have some fun with the unique lighting and interesting details of the theatre. And let me tell you - we had Kristy WORKING for her portraits...dancing, bending, spinning....the girl was a champ and totally WORKED IT.





Kristy displayed quite a few of her portraits at her wedding reception, but this was the one she put on canvas and had framed big - BEAUTIFUL.







LOVE LOVE LOVE this image.

Every time I see your growth come alive and say to myself...WOW this is the best yet...you continue to improve...You are a wonderful metaphor for others to understand that when you do something well it is only the foundation to do something better. This is a legacy of importance....a testimony to the gifts God has placed in each of us....the hidden desires of our heart ordained as our place in His creation of life. Amen Amen....God puts everyone in our journey for a reason.
Cheyenne, this was an amazing opportunity...and this bride has been put in your path to make a statement...
