Cailen+Sean; day after!

Are you ready??? Seriously, between Cailen looking like a hot version of a disney princess, and Sean, with his crooked Irish grin looking like Prince Charming, here in a fairy tale castle, you can bet that I didn’t let them get away with out a serious day after session. Huz and I thought for some time where we should do it. Perhaps we should find some village in mountains from middle ages, but once we arrived at this spectacular house, all the ideas I had seemed to settle on the antique furniture, paintings, and 70 acre property (manicured, and un-manicured!). I was without my camera at the very moment, but suffice it to say that the first moment I reached the gardens behind the chateau I saw a deer approaching fruit trees, and the land was so clear and wide, that it ran for a time before it found cover in the woods. It was magical. Magical in a way this place is magical. And every one knew it. Everyone was talking about it. It was a magical wedding, in a magical place.

Cailen was so awesome to let me style her for this portion of the shoot! The dress she’s wearing is mine, I got it in Portland last summer. It’s a vintage Hawaiian dress from the 50’s, and never been worn (except by me, and now Cailen!). Oh, those are my shoes to. I lament sometimes about my big feet, but it was so awesome that Cailen and I are the same size so I could dress her up! And the black veil is one of Dorene’s, from Ashley and Andy’s shoot. I SO LOVE it when brides let me dress them up with all my pretty things I have infrequent opportunities to wear!!

Hey Muriel! It’s no processing, it’s film!

Punam, these are fantastic! What a beautiful location!!! I love what you’re doing with your processing lately, it’s gorgeous!


okay…woah, what a gorgeous couple + unbelievable setting. I don’t know how you didn’t just hide in a closet there and stay forever…that window in the first pic is dope! Also nice styling skills, you should dress people up more often.

Oh me oh my, what a sublime setting. Do you think they’d let me move in?
