*SIGH* Would you believe me if I told you that this lady made her own wedding dress? It’s absolutely stunning!!!
Meet Thira (pronounced Tira).
From time to time I will get an idea for a shoot so I’ll post around looking for a model and Thira happened to respond to one of them. This is going to sound so creepy, but I tend to facebook-stalk the models that respond to me to get an idea if they’ll match what I envision in my head. So, as I was perusing Thira’s photos I saw her wedding pictures and the dress she waa wearing. Ideas started forming and I thought, “Well, I could use some more bridal photos in my portfolio!” 😀 The deal was sealed when I found out she made the dress herself. I love to sew and about 3 times a year I’ll sink my teeth into a juicy project and then stick a model in it. It’s purely so I can admire my work. 😉 So, I absolutely loved the idea of doing that for Thira.

I’m so happy with this shoot! The fall colors, the moody contrast, and Thira’s intense eyes made for an amazingly fun shoot! I hope you enjoy!
