So Silly, I Know

I was married four years and six months ago. My uncle from Boston is a wonderful photographer who shot the wedding. He came down only for the wedding so I never had bridal portraits, which may be only a southern thing anyway. Well, I always wanted some and now I have them, ha! It is quite silly really, but I had fun doing them. It also gave the hubby a chance to do a more artistic approach to the whole thing. I don't think any bride would really want to bring their dress to an old train yard and an abandoned house, but I still hadn't had my dress cleaned since my wedding day so we went for it. Oh, and my real wedding day was in July so I made my dress more winter like and to fit my style as it is today for the shoot, more artistic right?

If you want to see my hubby's favorites go to his new photography site kellenjacob.bigfolioblog.com.

ok. first: we had the same dress(or same design-bc I got married in 2000 so doubt it was same, but sure looks the same)...funny, totally cracks me up...ofcourse we would have the same dress! Second: I never had a bridal either and kindof want one..but I am pushing 38 and don't look as hot as I did 9years ago...so don't think so. But yours sure are cute! Love them all.

You rock! I haven't even touched my dress in like 7 years (also I didn't get it cleaned either...) I haven't even LOOKED at it! It is so awesome that it fits you and that it looks AMAZING on you! And I LOVE the pics... now I'm trying to think of the last place I saw an abandoned house- I want to find one. I love creative photography like this...

hi paula! thanks for visiting my blog + saying hi.

it's great that you had bridals taken even after your wedding. you look beautiful in your dress + i especially love the flowers + ribbon. and guess what? i had my bridals at a train yard too! i like the contrast a lot, and yours turned out so nice.

Ok, not silly at all! I love this idea and may even have to copy it. I never had bridal portraits done either, but I love this idea... especially that your husband did the shoot! They turned out fabulous!

Oh I love these! Your husband is really talented and I love the old train in the background. It really makes it feel romantic. I will have to tell my photographer to take some bridal shots.
