Dina bridals

I am trying to get back into the swing of things after a crazy month of August. I am hoping to actually get caught up for once (how long have I been saying that?!) and I'm going to kick off a new round of blog posts with Dina.

Hopefully I will be blogging Dina and Grigor's wedding next week, but just before the wedding, Dina and I snuck out to a private property here in Bloomington to take a few bridal shots in her dress. Sometimes the wedding day can get hectic, and it is nice to be able to take an evening out and get some editorial shots in the gown that are relaxed and fun (and at a location that you might not otherwise get to shoot at on the wedding day).

Sorry in advance for the large amount of photographs. My blog, my rules! I'm bad at narrowing down my favorites...

Dina's amazing gown is an Oleg Cassini (mine was too!) and she looks oh-so-beautiful in it! Dina, it was such an amazing priviledge to capture your bridal beauty! We had some incredible August evening light that night!
Dina, your beauty is effortless...
We came across this totally awesome swing, and I was so excited when Dina was adventurous enough/willing to give it a try! I think it is so beautiful!

As an afterthought, I grabbed a chair out of my living room. We almost didn't use it, but at the very end of our session, we pulled it out for a few shots, and I'm so glad we did! Dina, you're a model. Just saying.

I love wide shots where the subject is small. So beautiful!

Dina, your eyes are so beautiful!
You're a princess.
Helloooooo yummy light!!!

I can't handle your beauty!! Oh, and thank you to the granddaughter of the owner of this property. She had her wedding there a week previous - the rose petals that just happen to be in Dina's wedding color are courtesy of her!
More of your sassiness in the chair...LOVE!
Have I also mentioned that you are FIERCE!?

Dina, I can't say how much I LOVE you! Your engagement, your bridals, and your wedding - you are so easygoing and gorgeous and I can't wait for you to see your wedding pictures. (SOON!)

Happy Friday!!!
