Beautifully Lit Forest Bridal Session | Greensboro, NC

For Emily’s bridal session, I wanted dramatic enchantment. We chose Hagan-Stone Park just outside of Greensboro and shot in the early afternoon hours. Her gorgeous custom Martina Liana gown was a perfect contrast and balance to the deep woods that we trekked through. The images are exactly what I imagined and Emily looked beyond beautiful. We even found a little chapel on the park’s grounds to play in. It was a perfect afternoon.

Many people ask how we shoot in location like forests and mountain sides, and waterfalls and manage to keep the dress clean. The last image in the slideshow is a perfect visual explanation. The bride stands on a clear plastic shower curtain topped with a white sheet near the same color as her dress. Once she is in the perfect position, we tuck everything up under the dress. Volia! Pristine dress even in less than pristine locations!
