Modeling after the Romantics

In May of this last year, I took a degree in English from the University of Dallas-- since then, I've been blessed with something I haven't had in four years: time to read books not required of me to read. A few weeks ago, I re-read Oscar Wilde's "The Importance of Being Ernest" as well as Margaret Gaskell's "North and South," and I started working on some Evelyn Waugh work. All of this inspired me to style a shoot that felt a little Romantic and a little Victorian-- in other words, the weird "taxes and employment don't exist for the upper class Brits so I'll just head out to frolic in the woods" vibe that Literary Romanticism offers. With help from Miss Rachel (check our her instagram: @ImRachelNicole), I think we accomplished that. Have fun with these pics-- they were a blast to shoot. 

 

 

Bridal Party Beauties // ben + magdalene

This past weekend, I watched my older sister, Magdalene, marry her Minnesota sweetie, Ben. Unfortunately, we couldn't figure out a way that I could be both wedding photographer and bridesmaid, but I was lucky enough to be asked to grab some shots before the wedding, while the girls got ready.

This group compiled some kickass women from all aspects of Maggie's life: her time at UST, Milwaukee, as an RA, from work, and from her childhood. We had so much fun hanging out and getting ready together to celebrate Maggie + Ben. 

We got to the Wisconsin Club at 7:30 AM, and got to blast some music, eat some treats, and relax in the personally monogrammed robes that were part of the gifts to the bridesmaids. Enjoy the pictures, and keep me in mind for your future wedding!
