This spring I had the opportunity to model my friend Holly’s wedding gowns for a styled shoot with Amy and Kaitlin of Lovelit Wedding Photography. I have been a fan of Holly’s work since I first moved to Portland in 2002 and I love seeing how far she’s come since then. Her gowns are incredible and I felt absolutely glamorous the moment I slipped one on.
I am definitely not the most graceful model, but having three encouraging women cheer me on and give direction made me feel totally comfortable in front of the camera. We had a wonderful day at Cape Kiwanda, hiking through sand dunes and into caves to find epic views of the Oregon Coast. The wind was cold and my toes were numb, but I was having too much fun to care! Looking at these photos, I remember the day as if it were a fairytale.
