So, Lauren’s bridals (isn’t she GORGEOUS!).
We initially met Lauren’s mom for their wedding consultation at Becker Vineyards for wine and wedding conversations. On the same visit Tony and I had taken a tour of the vineyard and Tony was immediately bound and determined that he was going to convince Lauren to shoot her bridals at this place. As you see, he got his way!
Time went by and in scheduling the date for these we realized I was going to be about 36 weeks pregnant on the date of Lauren’s bridal session. Everything was going great with the pregnancy, I felt fine, but we all came to an agreement that if I could not attend Lauren’s bridal session then Tony would shoot her session solo. I like to think I’m pretty tough – I shot weddings last year with a torn ACL (you wont see us missing something over a cold, flu…or torn ligament – yes, weddings are THAT important) so this was really just a safety net and a plan of action if we needed it. We rarely, if NEVER, shoot wedding related sessions apart.
(Well, never say never).
…And then guess who had to have an emergency C-section just DAYS before this pretty lady’s bridal session! Yes, it happened. So shortly after I got out of the hospital and while Baby Rylynn was still in NICU (being born 5 weeks early), Tony headed to Becker Vineyards in Fredericksburg to shoot this session he had been looking forward to since that very first wedding consultation (which seemed like happened long, long ago)!
As for me, I’m a bit of a control freak. I have my hands all over these sessions, and it was killing me at home waiting for him to get back. I think I would have snatched the camera out of his hands the second he walked in the door, but he already had the screen ready to show me his favorites as he stepped in the house! And then, I saw that they were absolutely gorgeous bridals – as expected -and so he got a high five and a big kiss and here we are!
