Words from the photographer:
The Inspiration for this photoshoot began with the idea of free flowing movement and expressing the beauty of having free rein of ones self. Today there is so much expected of a bride and how she should act and look. I want to break the stigmas and allow brides to know that it is okay to be unrestricted in exactly who you are on your wedding day.
As we walked down toward Canyon Lake you could hear the shouts and laughter of fellow lake goers as they enjoyed the last bits of Arizona sunshine in late September. The model, Alexis, did an amazing job of letting the vivid world around us take hold of her. The movement that came from that in Carol Hannah's Myrina dress was stunning as it whirled to life.
We photographed until the sun sank well below the Mountains of The Superstition Wilderness of Tonto National Forest. This helped bring a rugged grain to the otherwise pristine elegant light.
