Sabrina and Selasi’s wedding day was full of cool modern style, while still embodying traditional southern charm. Love that! This wonderful and gorgeous couple has a beautiful connection, and it was terrific to see them celebrate it surrounded by so many people who care for them. It was a memorable and fantastic start to their new married life.

Like a lot of photographers, I’m not a fan of the phrase “Trash the Dress”. It sounds negative, destructive, and well…trashy. Also, not every woman wants to annihilate her wedding gown for the sake of photos. While taking these pics of downright flawless Lesa, I was chatting with the super-swell folks of Flower Child Weddings about how we need a better phrase. I suggested “Empower the Bride”. However, I’d like to assume that whoever I’m shooting is already feeling powerful. Yeah! “Editorial Bridal Shoot” is accurate, but kind of a yawn fest. Maybe “celebrate the gown”, or “love the dress”. I’ll work on it and get back to you. Feel free to add suggestions, because we need a phrase that does justice to the ladies and their frocks. Lesa, I hope we properly honored your gorgeous gown, and more importantly, your gorgeous self!
