My parents have lived within the tall surroundings of the beautiful pine trees for almost a decade but I had never used their tall beauty for a bridal shoot before. While pine trees are beautiful, the light they cast can really be difficult to find the light I’m looking for. When Amanda let me know she wanted to shoot at her grandparents land less than a minute from my parents, I was a little fearful of these quite tall trees – but take a look at the amazing background they created for us. Amanda had great ideas – wanting to create a scene you would normally see inside with a beautiful vintage couch and a chandelier – yes you heard me – hanging from the trees. I love everything about this shoot and will no longer be afraid of the those Lost Pines.
Thanks to the ladies at Angels and Outlaws on the square in La Grange for letting us use this beautiful vintage couch.
