Bridal Session in Oakland with Julie Cheshire

Uncategorized

Bridal sessions aren’t very common outside of the south but they’re great fun. The bride gets a reason to wear this beautiful and expensive dress more than once and usually show the pictures on the wedding day.

Julie of Julie Cheshire Photography and I spent some time with Rachel the other week at the Mountain View Cemetery in Oakland collecting some really awesome bridal pictures of this fun and feisty bride.


Rachel used to spend a lot of time here to just walk around and think because of the beautiful surroundings and peacefulness of the place. I’m so glad she suggested it because it really was spectacular (and different)!
Check them out!







We then went around the corner to the Morcom Rose Garden to make use of the last moments of daylight.



If you love the idea of wearing your dress more than once but are a bit hesitant about putting on before your big day, consider a trash the dress session. No, you don’t really have to trash your dress but it’s an awesome opportunity to wear that gown again and get some unique pictures without much worry of the dress getting a little dirty. These are great for just the bride or the bride with her new hubby!

After all there is something about a wedding-gown prettier than in any other gown in the world. ~Douglas William Jerrold

She is my newest Senior Ambassador from Los Gatos High School. "Fashions fade; style is eternal."–Yves Saint LaurentI cannot even begin to tell you how much fun we had. I have been dying to try a "trash the dress" shoot for a while now and Felicia eagerly offered up two gowns for the event. The whole Trash the Dress Phenomenon started with photographer John Michael Cooper, who gets together with brides after their weddings to don their bridal gowns one last time. He then photogra ...

Modeling Session at Baker Beach/Chrissy Field
After scheduling and rescheduling several times due to gross San Francisco weather, I finally photographed Shelly about a week ago at Baker Beach and Chrissy Field. I can't say that the weather was particularly optimal on that day either. We met at Baker Beach in the evening and it was sooo windy! I had never seen it so blustery! I was kind of bummed because we had planned to do a trash-the-dress but there was no way that was happening.We started off at Battery Chamberlain to help shield us from the gusts. I love shooting back there with the grungy, chipped-paint feel of things. It's a very cool spot. It also has some great lines and s ...

November Desktop Images
October was one of my busiest months on record. 5 weddings and a handful of engagement sessions and other events were almost enough to make my head spin. Though I only have three more weddings in 2010, my busy season is hardly over. I have a tremendous amount of editing to do and many more engagement sessions up ahead. Wish me luck as I bundle up and get down to business as the year begins to wrap up.This month's images are two of my favorite rust pictures. If you've heard me talk about my favorite places to shoot, you know that I love everything old, crumbly, rusted, deserted, chipped, and neglected. Rust especially is just so cool. I ...
