I recently held a contest for one lucky bride to have a free “Rock the Dress” session. The winner was Miss E, and I couldn’t be happier. Her story really touched me, and I am proud to be able to give back to someone who has worked so hard to become what she is now. After having bariatric surgery less than seven months ago, she has lost over 130 pounds. Just wow. To wear her dress for the shoot her Aunt took in 12″ of dress. Wowwy, wow wow!
We played at Shelburne Farms, in Lake Champlain, and even my backyard for the paint portion. I had a blast, it’s so much easier setting up a location when you don’t have to worry about a pretty white dress getting a “little dirty” haha.
I want to stress that if this type of shoot interests you, you DO NOT have to trash your dress. But if you do, I’ll be there to capture those moments! I love how it was a great celebration for her and how far she’s come! Congratulations to you E, keep up the good work!
